From crafted storefront to handles carved in pure leather, from tailor-made luxury to palm wood and steel interiors. From suede walls to mohair embellished furniture. Kept in natural, muted, and matte and in brown and tan accents, the fourth Bottega Veneta shop in Shanghai is here to mesmerize. The Italian luxury label belonging to the PPR group recently opened its fourth flagship store in Shanghai. It’s the biggest yet in China, occupying sprawling 21 stores or 530 square meters stretched over 2 floors. In Bund, a famous, historic quarter of Shanghai and nestled within the Yifeng Galleria shopping center, a house that caters exclusively to fashion and luxury brands, this store might make you feel a bit lost. The first level houses exclusively the brand’s products: handbags, luggage, men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, footwear, eyewear, and small leather goods and accessories.
The second floor is entirely dedicated to art: spread over 2300 square feet, the store will house non-commercial exhibitions of work’s of young Chinese independent artist all year long.
The store which will showcase various artistic forms, under the supervision of Chinese art expert Gu Sheng, this is also the brand’s very first boutique store to have a space entirely devoted to art. We definitely see possibilities here- the paintings are most likely to find its way to Milan!
