BOTTEGA, ACT TWO: Bottega Veneta opened its first London store last week and it’s all about form and function, leather and louvers.
The 2,700-square-foot unit, at 33 Sloane Street, was designed by the American architect William Sofield. It is the second new-generation Bottega flagship since the new unit on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris opened earlier this month.
