Bottega Veneta is pleased to announce the opening of its third boutique in the Philippines, at Shangri-La Plaza East Wing. Measuring 123 square meters, the boutique offers a selection of Bottega Veneta products including women’s handbags, shoes and jewelry as well as men’s bags, shoes and small leather goods.
Featuring 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, 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, walls covered in ultra-suede, 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 boutique interior is an elegant reflection of Bottega Veneta’s defining qualities: timeless design, modern functionality, outstanding craftsmanship, and the highest quality materials.
“I’m delighted to be opening a new boutique in Manila,” said Maier. “The luxurious environment of Shangri-La Plaza East Wing enables us to provide our customers with a further opportunity to enjoy Bottega Veneta’s distinctive service and exquisitely handcrafted products, which I’m sure they will appreciate.”
Marco Bizzarri, president and CEO of Bottega Veneta, said, “We’re delighted with the response we’ve seen in the Philippines over the past few years and have been interested in expanding our presence here for some time.”
“The opening of this new boutique…can certainly be seen as a reflection on how much our clients value Bottega Veneta’s unrivaled reputation for service and quality, and the importance we place on accommodating their needs and desires as best we can. With this latest addition to our store network, we look forward to continuing our relationship with loyal customers here, as well as welcoming those who may not yet have had the opportunity to experience the brand, and hope they find it to be a valued addition to their city,” he added.
In the Philippines, Bottega Veneta is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists Inc. and is at Greenbelt 4, Ayala Center; 1/L Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, and Rustan’s Makati.
