The new store will carry the entire line for women’s as well as men’s accessories, fine jewelry, home, gifts and luggage.
“The store at CityCenter enables Bottega Veneta to extend the reach of our unsurpassed service and unique shopping experience within an important luxury goods market,” said Bottega Veneta president and chief executive officer Marco Bizzarri.
Bottega Veneta will continue to operate its stores in Las Vegas at the Bellagio and The Palazzo.
All three locations have been designed by creative director Tomas Maier to reflect the brand’s core values of timeless design, modern functionality, craftsmanship and the finest materials.
“Las Vegas is one of the most important luxury shopping destinations in the world, and it is only natural that Bottega Veneta have a strong presence there,” Maier said.
The newest store, which had a soft opening last week, presents Bottega Veneta’s collection in a comfortable and intimate environment. Muted, matte neutrals and earth tones comprise the understated palette. Every component, from the handcrafted vitrines to the door handles sheathed in leather, showcases Bottega Veneta’s products.
There are vertical window louvers of palm wood and steel, finely crafted display counters with sliding trays padded in Ultrasuede, mohair furniture upholstery and custom-dyed, New Zealand wool carpets. The walls are also covered with Ultrasuede.
