MILAN — Bottega Veneta is looking east for business and steadily expanding its retail network into new markets such as Turkey, Lithuania, Ukraine, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait.
In common with many of its competitors, the brand is also turning to India, China and Russia, reaching out to deep-pocketed customers hungry for luxury goods. Although logoed products are still a big draw in those countries, the more understated Bottega Veneta is undeterred, according to Patrizio Di Marco, chief executive officer of the company.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
