In the fashion world this super brand is synonymous with quality and luxury. Unlike other brands, Bottega and Netta's clothes and accessories never bore a logo, conveying classic luxury and aversion to trends. Lee, a graduate of the St. Martin's Academy of Design and the Arts, stated that his mission is to preserve the essence of a botga based on handicrafts, uncompromising quality and sophistication, but also to incorporate a sense of modernity into it. He wants to design “live in” clothes, as he said after the warmly received 2019 Winter Show. Seven months later he presented the Summer 2020 collection, again with rave reviews. Lee radiated determination and proved that he knows his customers and knows what they want. "I want to be bold," he said. “I find no interest in doing fashion that does not express anything. "Either they love it or they hate it - it's human nature." While the burden of proof is still on him, when it comes to financial success, his clear success on the street and in the industry - encouraging, bringing excitement in the air and a new vision of luxury and vocal elegance.
