Bottega Veneta has announced Matthieu Blazy will be taking over for Daniel Lee as Creative Director

Bottega Veneta often sends the fashion world into a tizzy with its whimsical creations and unconventional decisions – of course, we’re talking about its departure from social media and launch of digital magazine Issued by Bottega. However, when the Italian House announced that Daniel Lee would no longer be Creative Director after three-and-a-half years at the helm, the fashion world was stunned.

Now, Bottega Veneta has announced the appointment of Matthieu Blazy as Creative Director, effective immediately. A graduate of La Cambre in Brussels, Matthieu Blazy began as Men’s Designer for Raf Simons before subsequent positions at Maison Martin Margiela, Celine and Calvin Klein. He was then appointed RTW Design Director at Bottega Veneta in 2020.

“Matthieu Blazy is an extraordinarily talented individual, whom I am proud and excited to entrust with the creative helm of our luxury House,” gushed Leo Rongone, CEO of Bottega Veneta. “Matthieu’s appointment will further enhance the modern relevance of our brand and accelerate our growth, while preserving the values that are at the core of Bottega Veneta.”

Matthieu Blazy’s first collection will debut in February 2022. We can’t wait (and can’t help but wonder whether he’ll bring the Bottega Veneta Instagram back).
