Haute Shopping: Phipps Plaza Welcomes Bottega Veneta

Atlanta’s premiere luxury shopping destination gives us one more reason to begin our countdown to summer with the coming of Bottega Veneta.

The Italian luxury goods house, best known for its extraordinary leather goods, will be joining the likes of Jeffrey, Versace, Barneys New York CO-OP and its sister brand Gucci this summer when its opens a 2,500-square-foot boutique in Phipps Plaza. The shop will be a first for Georgia and will continue the brand’s commitment to high quality material and outstanding craftsmanship by carrying a full collection of clothing, shoes, accessories and gifts for men and women.

According to Tisha Maley, assistant vice president of leasing for Simon Property Group, not only has this store been a long time in the making but it is also just another link in the chain connecting Phipps Plaza and Bottega Veneta’s parent company, the Gucci Group. Maley says, “Bottega Veneta has been interested in the Atlanta market for a number of years, and we are thrilled that the company determined Phipps Plaza to be the ideal setting for its Atlanta store. The addition of Bottega Veneta to Phipps demonstrates that the Gucci Group is continuing to invest in its relationship with the center, which is already home to the successful Gucci boutique.”

While we may have to wait another few months to let our credit cards do the talking at Bottega Veneta, we can start compiling our wish lists as we dream of warmer weather and the new wardrobe that accompanies it.

Phipps Plaza is located at 3500 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30326.
