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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
