British Luxury Brand Mulberry Opens First Store in Las Vegas
in The Forum Shops at Caesars
To celebrate its first Las Vegas store opening on Aug. 1, Mulberry has created a capsule collection of stunning limited edition embellished pieces, available exclusively in Las Vegas at Mulberry inside The Forum Shops. A sumptuous black suede clutch, called the Clemmie, is studded with dozens of gunmetal rivets for a truly statement bag. Four classic and exquisitely tailored black dresses are decorated with beading and glass crystal, adding a touch of glamour inspired by an artistic floral motif. A pair of striking embellished high heel sandals completes the look. The Forum Shops store is the first Mulberry store in North America to feature a new store design concept. Inspired by Mulberry’s roots in the English countryside the design uses color and textures inspired by natural materials. Hand-carved and untreated oak is used for shelving, and Somerset limestone is used for the floor, laid out in the style of traditional parquet flooring and reminiscent of traditional English country houses. The store is divided into areas for a calm and elegant shopping environment, with neutral colors allowing the products to stand out. Mulberry commissioned British leather artist Genevieve Bennett to create a stunning collection of leather wall tiles carved out in beautiful tonal leather, of course inspired by Mulberry’s heritage of leather craftsmanship. The Forum shops location features Mulberry’s first ever wall of ‘falling leaves’, taken from the iconic Mulberry tree logo to create a subtle and elegant pattern on a feature wall for all to see.
