TEANECK, N.J., Sept. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leica is opening its doors to their first permanent store at The Shops at the Bravern in the Seattle/Bellevue area. The newly designed boutique comes after occupying a temporary space in The Bravern mall, which consists of residential housing, offices, and a luxury shopping experience for guests. Using an updated design aesthetic, the permanent two-story, 1,700 square foot store will feature a consumer-facing area on the first floor as well as an exhibition space, dry bar, customer care area, and VIP lounge for events and exhibit openings. Leica will showcase a rotating selection of the brand’s full product portfolio, including photographic equipment, Leica Watches, the Leica Cine 1 Laser TV, and sports optics. The exhibition area will feature exhibits that showcase a wide range of talent from local Seattle artists to renowned global photographers.

The new store implements Leica’s new design concept that modernizes the space using natural surfaces made of sustainable wood in warm tones to convey a calm, retiring atmosphere for guests. First introduced to Leica’s Store & Gallery in Munich, the innovative store design won the esteemed Red Dot Design Award in 2021.

“With the revamped store design and comprehensive range of products, services, and support, we offer our customers a unique brand and shopping experience. The new store is a place that concentrates on the essentials and makes the fascination of photography tangible for every visitor,” explains Matthias Harsch, CEO of Leica Camera AG.

Though Leica is certainly not new to the Bellevue area, our latest store opening at The Bravern will allow the brand to better engage with local creatives, fellow enthusiasts, and connoisseurs of photography in an exciting new location,” said Mike Giannattasio, President of Leica Camera North America. “We could not be more thrilled with this expansion and are looking forward to creating an inspiring destination for photographers in Seattle.”

The opening of Leica’s new store at The Bravern in Bellevue, WA is scheduled for October 21, 2023, featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony, weekend of immersive events and opening exhibition featuring work by local Seattle artist, Terry LaRue.
