The Bravern - Bottega Veneta Pulling Out?
Is Bottega Veneta pulling out of the Bravern development in Bellevue? All press releases and mentions of the boutique seem to have mysteriously vanished from the Bravern website. My guess is that the Gucci Group, which owns Bottega Veneta, was monitoring how the new Gucci boutique at 5th & University in downtown Seattle was performing, and combining that with the economy as a whole, decided to pull the plug on opening a Bottega Veneta in Bellevue. Oy.
