Bottega Veneta became the latest luxury brand to open a duplex store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. The 435-square metre boutique is more than double the size of the previous store and now spans two floors. The new boutique offers a more complete selection of Bottega Veneta products for men and women including ready-to-wear, handbags, accessories, shoes, luggage, eyewear, items for the home, fragrance and jewellery on each level.
To mark the reopening of the store, Bottega Veneta hosted a private cocktail where guests including VIPs as well as members of the press mingled and discovered the collections. The reopening also saw the installation of larger-than-life Blythe dolls in the store windows, an initiative first seen at the Italian label’s flagships at Fifth Avenue in New York and Ginza in Tokyo. The Blythe dolls – clad in what else but Bottega Veneta – will be on display until 20 July 2014, attracting curious onlookers in the meantime.
