Introducing Bottega Veneta’s Flagship Tokyo Store

By Paul Joseph

Italian luxury fashion house Bottega Veneta is preparing to open it first ever retail store in Japan – and it is set to be the largest of its kind anywhere across the continent of Asia.

Spread over some 6 floors of retail space in Tokyo, the store will showcase men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, handbags, eyewear, footwear, fragrances, jewellery, home décor and plenty more.

The store has been designed to reflect the varied aesthetic flavours of Japan with a décor that is particularly inspired by Tokyo’s futuristic and modern architecture.

The eye-catching façade is made from 900 “lunar” metal panels, each carved to form an elegant weave. Inside, the tone is set with luminescent and geometric patterns inspired by the renowned Light and Space artists of the 1960s.

Elements of greenery and natural oak floors are further complimented with formal angular windows framed by inclined, folding plaster in the store.

The architecture of the store further reflects sunlight throughout the day, changing the colour and overall ambience of the space by the hour.

Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, CEO of Bottega Veneta, said: “The Ginza flagship is an investment in elevating and enhancing the shopping experience of Japanese clients, and customers throughout Asia.”

Bottega Veneta was established in 1966 by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro.
