We smell a massive, major shoe trend coming to conquer our shores. The rise of Bottega Veneta under new creative head Daniel Lee, an era reverently dubbed #NewBottega by its achingly chic, completely besotted devotees, has been nothing short of meteoric. Just mere months after his exquisitely simple, supple debut via the Italian luxury label's Spring-Summer 2019 collection, the Instagram fan account solely dedicated to his work has amassed over 62,000 followers—that, and if the horde of well-versed fashion girls swathing themselves in his pieces are any evidence, it's enough ammo to suggest that he's taken the style scene by an Intrecciatio-woven storm. We expected nothing less from this particularly prodigious protege of #OldCeline's esteemed Phoebe Philo.
So how does this domino effect affect local taste? Well, it's looking like our very own stars are smitten with BV's fresh lewk: It certainly hasn't escaped our eagle eyes that celebs have slowly but surely begun falling hard for this duo of heeled pairs:
Heart Evangelista's tan versions are the perfect, updated, endlessly-elongating nude sandal.
On the other hand, Liz Uy prefers these sexy, strappy numbers to team with a party-in-the-back sweater dress.
Marian Rivera likes 'em both, and with excellent reason.
You're enamored too, aren't you? Knew it. We can't wait to see everyone ride this trio's wave.
