Bottega Veneta has announced the opening of a new boutique in Shanghai’s international Financial Center in Pudong. The store measures a spacious 345 square meters and carries a wide range of Bottega Veneta products, including handbags, luggage, women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, shoes, small leather goods, eyewear, and an assortment of items for the home.
The new store features Bottega Veneta’s signature store concept, designed by Creative Director Tomas Maier. Every element of the boutique interior, from the walnut tables and handcrafted vitrines to the door handles sheathed in leather, was custom-made. Amongst the notable design features are aerodynamically shaped, vertical window louvers of palm wood and steel, finely crafted display counters with slide-out billiard-cloth presentation pads, walls covered with ultra-suede, mohair furniture upholstery, and custom-dyed, pure new Zealand wool carpets. A quiet, sensuous palette of matte neutrals and earth tones further enhances the privacy, sophistication, and ease of the shopping experience. The boutique interior is an elegant reflection of Bottega Veneta’s defining qualities: timeless design, modern functionality, outstanding craftsmanship, and the highest quality materials.
Shanghai is the most important economic, financial, trading, and technology center in China, and also is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. The international Financial Center, located in the rapidly developing Pudong area, offers hotels, service apartments, offices, restaurants, and most importantly, an impressive assortment of international fashion and luxury brand stores. It is one of the landmark shopping destinations in the city.
“I am very pleased to be opening our third Bottega Veneta store in Shanghai, a city with seemingly unlimited possibilities,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier. “The new store at Shanghai iFC enhances our ability to offer Bottega Veneta’s distinctive service and unique shopping experience to everyone who lives in and visits this fascinating city.“
“The Shanghai iFC store is one of our biggest stores in Asia and represents our commitment to development in China. This opening allows us to both participate in and contribute to the phenomenal growth of Shanghai,” says Marco Bizzarri, president and CEO of Bottega Veneta.
