SHANGHAI — Arriving relatively late into the China market, Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta is certainly making up for lost time.
While the brand only opened its first store in China in 2007, Thursday’s grand opening of the 22nd store in China — the fourth in Shanghai — brought together customers, industry executives and fashionistas to celebrate the brand’s increasing popularity in China. The new store at the Yi Feng Galleria mall, near Shanghai’s most exclusive address on the Bund waterfront, will be the brand’s largest in China. It will also be Bottega Veneta’s first store to double as gallery space, where works by promising Chinese photographers will be on display starting in August.
