Bottega Veneta has opened the doors to its first boutique in Miami, the first by creative director Daniel Lee.
“I wanted a one-off store that fused Miami with Montebello creating a space with a modern sense of color, calmness and joy,” says Lee.
Located in Miami’s Design District, the new two-floor shop brings Bottega Veneta’s Italian excellence to the the beach-adjacent Art Deco backdrop. The space reflects Lee’s unadulterated approach to design with an open plan that fills the space with light, accenting architectural elements such as a pink spiral staircase and a mosaic-like palladiana terrazzo floor of Italian marble on the ground level. The upper floor hosts the men’s collections in a warm yet modern area grounded with reclaimed wood and a mix of textures.
The exterior of Bottega Veneta Miami boasts refined green Verde Chianti lettering, while an oversized brass buckle has been reimagined as a door handle to complement the high-gloss green frame. Inside, the store showcases a blend of plaster and marble, concrete and brass, plywood and leather, resin and reclaimed wood. The Terrazzo Palladiano flooring is then patterned in Verde Guatemala, Bianco di Carrara, Verde Alpi, and Nero Marquina marble.
A standout feature of the Bottega Veneta Miami interior is the pink plaster and marble stairwell that leads to the upper level, where you will find reclaimed wood flooring. The second floor is designated for men’s styles, while the first houses women’s offerings.
The label’s lust-worthy accessories are the focal point of the store, lining the walls and perched on Bottega blue tables that reference the brand’s Mediterranean roots.
