Italian fashion powerhouse Bottega Veneta is focusing its attention on men this season with the opening of its first U.S. men’s-only store in Manhattan and the unveiling of a newly expanded collection of men’s ready-to-wear and accessories.

The store is located in a historic townhouse, which it shares with several art galleries. It features bright, airy interiors with ample seating and an open-air courtyard at the back of the store, where men can sit and have a glass of Champagne or whiskey.

The fall-winter 2012-2013 collection features a more tailored look than the brand’s earlier menswear lines; it is characterized by strong, sinewy silhouettes, which appear in everything from slim-fitting jackets with narrow shoulders and tapered sleeves to slim pants and handcrafted leather shoes with sleeker, more elongated frames. There is also a series of items sold exclusively at the Manhattan boutique for fall, including a short and structured leather jacket with velvet accents along the neck and shoulders ($2,550).
