NEW YORK — Bottega Veneta opened a new men’s-only store on Saturday at 23 East 67th Street, near the corner of Madison Avenue. It is the luxury brand’s second men’s store — following on the heels of a unit that opened in Shenyang, China, last May — and the first in the U.S.
The long, slender space is 1,661 square feet and was designed by Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier. It offers a full array of men’s bags, small leathers goods, luggage, shoes, belts, sunglasses, jewelry, home items, tailored clothing, dress furnishings and a small amount of sportswear. It is located in an historic townhouse, previously occupied by Isaac Mizrahi, and adjacent to a Creed fragrance boutique. Several art galleries and a single residence are situated above the store.
