Bottega Veneta, the Italian brand best known for its iconic cult sandals and sqaure-toed mules, has just announced the official opening of its first flagship store in Kuwait. The chic new store is located at The Avenues Mall, measuring an impressive 415 sqaure metres with three accessible entrances, and showcases the extensive range of Bottega Veneta pieces for both men and women, including ready-to-wear, small leather goods, bags, shoes, jewellery, and more.
With a façade made from silkscreen glass panels, recalling the maison's emblematic Intrecciato motif, the interior has been inspired by the theme of lightness. The Marmorino walls and floors are made of natural oak wood and ivory limestone; the environment is highlighted by sleek lighting coves that run along the ceiling perimeters, bathing the walls with light to enhance the artistic variations of textures and materials.
Every element of the boutique’s interior is custom-made, from the display tables made from pale naturalhued oak wood, to the handcrafted vitrines and door handles sheathed in leather. Furniture from the Bottega Veneta Home collection is also featured throughout the store, adding a pop of vibrant colour to the sleek atmosphere.
Bottega Veneta first established its presence in Kuwait in 2010 with the opening of its primary boutique in the 360 Mall. The brand has since been expanding its influence in the Middle East, most notably with the opening of this chic new flagship store.
