We think the puffy trend is here to stay. Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta's pop-up store is like a sturdy, giant inflatable house but for adults who love all things beautiful. Situated outside Ion Orchard, the pop-up – an architectural marvel – was inspired by the soft leather used in Bottega's craftmanship and is fully air-conditioned.
Fans of the brand, grab as many photos and shop as much as you can before it closes on 27 March, when the pop-up travels to Thailand for a showcase. Shop some of the Summer 2023 collection here, including men's and women's collections, the coveted Jodie and Cassette bags, and the Knot shoes.
Exclusive to the pop-up is the Sardine bags, which start from S$4,570 for a mini version and S$5,850 for a larger size. It's becoming a celebrities' go-to and spotted on the arms of models Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley and Kendall Jenner. Creative designer Matthieu Blazy created this hero bag using the house's signature intrecciato weave with a metallic fish-shaped handle.
For the launch party, local celebs like Fann Wong, Mediacorp artiste Ayden Sng, actor and singer Glenn Yong, artiste Eleanor Lee and music producer/DJ Jasmine Sokko were on hand to lend their star power.
See the photos above.
Visit the pop-up store at Ion Orchard Atrium until 27 March.
