So its recently-opened women's store won't be lonely, Bottega Veneta has decided to also open a men's-only store a little bit further downtown on Madison Avenue and 67th Street in May. WWD reports that according to creative director Tomas Maier, it'll be very "man-friendly."
"We don't want to make men walk through women's bags—it's a little awkward for them," Maier continues. In lieu of that, the new store will have a shoe wall that's organized by function rather than just by style, and it'll also carry furniture and interior design items. Consider it a very fancy man cave.
