Located in a historic palazzo overlooking one of Venice's most romantic canals, Pot-Pourrì is not only a clothes boutique but a fantastical dream-like place.
Pot-Pourrì is not only a clothes boutique, but a fantastic dream-like place
Palazzo Regina Vittoria, in Ramo dei Fuseri, is the headquarters of Pot-Pourrì's three standalone boutiques: its owner Marina has invested her passion for living in these concept stores. The style of her clothing and interior decor interprets her vision of everyday life, reflecting her love of colour and sophisticated creativity. Her originality is apparent in the spaces and window displays of her boutiques where accessories and clothing are not simply stacked or hanging like in a regular shop, but transformed into exquisite installation-like details. “Pot-Pourrì was established 45 years ago almost by chance”, says Marina. “It was originally a salon where I used to entertain friends. From the very beginning, I felt a need to create garments that reflected my lifestyle. This is why customers visiting Pot-Pourrì do not come here looking for only one specific item, but rather to ‘browse', to be seduced by the thousand nuances accenting our outerwear, dresses and accessories
(even those in our winter collections).”
“I prefer adopting an ‘intellectual' slant when welcoming customers to my shop”, says Marina. “Those who understand our concept, usually leave wearing a totally new look, accessories included.” Today, Marina is assisted by her daughters Malica and Melania, while her sonin-law Fabio heads the menswear boutique which she opened two years ago next to her womenswear boutique. Her latest boutique, dedicated to lifestyle and homeware, is also housed in the spaces of Palazzo Regina Vittoria. >> www.potpourri.it
