Bottega Veneta takes over Madison Avenue this spring with its most expansive maison to date. Spanning 15,000 square-feet—in a triad of century townhouses boasting a modern façade with 20th century-inspired architecture—the new store carries the Italian brand’s signature intrecciato woven leather goods, menswear, accessories, and an intimate living space concept floor of home furnishings. Inspired by his “love and admiration for New York City,” creative director Tomas Maier incorporated brushed brass ceilings and metal display cubes to reflect the city’s skyline, neutrals to evoke the bustling streets, and teal hues to evoke the surrounding waters. “Icons of New York,” an exclusive capsule collection of leather goods to commemorate the opening, is sure to lure visitors in droves. Additionally the new store is the site of the brand’s first personalization program, allowing customers to have their initials monogrammed on their merchandise for total customization.
Bottega Veneta is open now at 740 Madison Avenue, New York, NY.
