Whitewaller Venice: Shopping

By Eliza Jordan

May 11, 2017

For those traveling to Venice for the 57th Venice Biennale, VIVA ARTE VIVA, we’ve created Whitewaller Venice for you. In it, alongside a selection of top exhibitions and events, you’ll find hand-picked lifestyle destinations that are not to be missed. And if you’re in need of a little retail therapy, we’re created a list of shopping destinations for you to be sure and visit.

OFFICINE904
OFFICINE904’s philosophy is “less is more,” but that doesn’t undermine the incredible craftsmanship behind the handbags they sell. Since 2010, this multidisciplinary studio has been bringing together the art, fashion, design, and architecture worlds to celebrate original handbag design with a unique boutique concept.

Le Fórcole di Saverio Pastor
Known for his standout fórcole (the oar posts used on gondolas and other Venetian boats), Saverio Pastor creates objects that are both functional and beautiful at Le Fórcole di Saverio Pastor. Found between the Guggenheim Collection and the church of La Madonna della Salute, his workshop presents centuries-old techniques met with contemporary design by way of elbow-shaped carved forms from single pieces of wood.
