Bottega Veneta New Stores In Singapore, Korea And Azerbaijan

Bottega Veneta seems to be on an expansion plan all across the world:-) With 3 new stores opening in the month of September 2009 alone! And I am pleased to know that our sunny shores gets one of them:-P

If you have been shopping in Orchard Road lately, you will notice there is a lot of reshuffling in shop address. Ion Orchard probably cause a lot of tenants to switch venues or expand their existing share of the luxury retail market. Takashimaya department store's shop-in-shop has also undergo a series of musical chairs. The old Polo Ralph Lauren space is now occupied by Bally, and with Bally's vacating their original space on the 2nd level, it allows Bottega Veneta to convert that larger store space to Bottega Veneta heaven! Indeed good news for all Bottega Veneta fans:-) We now get a much spacious and comfortable retail environment to indulge in the brand's gorgeous bag and accessories offerings. I have been there myself and I love the new shop space. So much more selections available and Takashimaya always have special promotions going on which can involve luxury retailers such as Bottega Veneta:-) I spotted some drool worthy totes on my recent visit and I am impressed with the Fall Winter collection. Head down now today and check out the new space! I am keenly awaiting the opening of Bottega Veneta's new store at Ion Orchard. I will be expecting a mega size store since the construction hordings I see now stretches pretty far:-P

Next up for store opening is Korea's famous shopping heaven, Shinsegae Youngdeungpo Department Store. The new store measures 1,517 square feet and carries a wide range of Bottega Veneta products including handbags, small leather goods, accessories, shoes,luggage, eyewear and fashion jewelry collection. If you travel to Korea, make sure to drop by.

The next Bottega Veneta store to debut in September is in the city of Baku, located in the country of Azerbaijan. Oh my...I do not think I have ever heard of this place. So I learn something new today. Located in Eurasia, it is at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. One of the most significant accomplishments of the Azerbaijan Parliament was the extension of suffrage to women, making them the first Muslim nation to grant women equal political rights with men. Formerly under Soviet Union ruling, Azerbaijan adopted a Declaration of Independence on 18 October 1991, affirmed by a nationwide referendum in December 1991, after Soviet Union was officially dissolved. Phew...politics and history is complicated. What I do most understand is the lavish European style shopfront and split level mega store space of Azerbaijan's Bottega Veneta store. Bottega Veneta fans will be duly satisfied with their 'cravings' of Bottega Veneta products:-P

I just learned of Azerbaijan when my very cute friend told me, "oh, I just gave head to a muscular, Azerbaijani guy inside a car."

I HAD to look the country up. :-)

I don't have anything BV yet. Let's get some light-colored intrecciato shoes next year, Kev! haha
