Bottega Veneta opens a new store in Bangalore, India

Bottega Veneta has announced the opening of a new store in Bangalore, india, within the luxurious UB City mall. The new store measures 54 square meters and offers handbags and men’s and women’s accessories and shoes.
The boutique features Bottega Veneta’s signature store concept designed by Creative director Tomas Maier. Every element of the boutique interior, from the walnut tables to the door handles sheathed in leather, has been custom made. Among 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; mohair furniture upholstery, and custom-dyed, pure new Zealand wool carpets. A quiet, sensuous palette of matte neutrals and earth tones underscores the privacy, sophistication, and comfort of the shopping experience. The store is a reflection of Bottega Veneta’s defining qualities: exceptional design, modern functionality, outstanding craftsmanship, and the use of the highest quality materials.

Bangalore is the third largest city in India and a thriving IT and high-tech industrial center. Located on the Deccan plateau in the southern part of the country, it is home to many well-known colleges and research institutions and is India’s fastest growing metropolis. UB City, located in the heart of Bangalore, is an entertainment and retail destination combining high-end retail boutiques, restaurants, offices, apartments, and a hotel.
“Bottega Veneta is delighted to be opening a store in Bangalore,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier. “The city has a very cosmopolitan sensibility and it’s exciting to be a part of its growth. This new store enables us to offer Bottega Veneta’s distinctive service and luxurious shopping experience to our customers in southern India.”
“India is still a relatively new market for Bottega Veneta and one in which we anticipate significant growth,” says Marco Bizzarri, president and CEO of Bottega Veneta. “The store in Bangalore brings Bottega Veneta to a new region of the country and represents an exciting opportunity for the brand.”
