Gucci will open a new store today in the Village Mall in Rio de Janeiro. The 3,498-square-foot shop will feature a range of women’s and men’s accessories, as well as the Gucci children’s collection.

“This is our fifth store in Brazil and the first in Rio de Janeiro, underscoring our belief in the long-term potential for this market,” said Patrizio di Marco, president and chief executive officer of Gucci. “In fact, from the beginning of this year we have established a fully dedicated team and structure in São Paulo to support the growth of our business in Brazil and the rest of Latin America.”
