Italian luxury label Bottega is all set to open doors to its very first store in the eclectic nation of Japan. The largest of its kind in Asia, the store will showcase some of the best in men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, handbags, eyewear, footwear, fragrances, jewelry, home décor and more.
Located at 5-6-1 Ginza Chuo-Ku in Tokyo, the store expands over six floors and accommodates approximately 800 square meters of retail space. It is designed to reflect the varied flavors of Japan with a décor that is specially inspired by the capital’s futuristic and modern architecture.
It greets you with an interesting façade that is made from 900 “lunar” metal panels, each carved to form an elegant intrecciato weave. Inside, the tone is set right with luminescent and geometric patterns that are inspired by the Light and Space artists of the 1960s.
Elements of greenery and natural oak floors are further complimented with formal angular windows framed by inclined, folding plaster in the store. Holistically, it provides shoppers a space where they can simply relax, let go and enjoy a dose of retail therapy.
The architecture of the store further reflects sunlight throughout the day, changing the color and overall ambience of the space by the hour. As opined by Bottega Veneta CEO Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, “The Ginza flagship is an investment in elevating and enhancing the shopping experience of Japanese clients, and customers throughout Asia” We couldn’t have agreed more to the ‘enhanced shopping experience’ bit!
