Mulberry

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.

The festivities kick-off in style at 6 p.m. on level two of The Shoppes at The Palazzo near Chloè and Piazza Sempione.

“Bill and I are thrilled to host Fashion’s Night Out at The Shoppes at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. It’s no secret that fashion is a passion of mine and Las Vegas retail ranks among the best. The city is home to many of the world’s top designer brands and The Shoppes at The Palazzo is easily one of my favorite places to indulge in some retail therapy,” said the “E! News” and “Fashion Police” host and Style Network reality star, Giuliana Rancic. “Barneys New York, Fendi, Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin are just a few of the designers on board. We look forward to a successful Fashion’s Night Out — Vegas style!”

 

Notable evening highlights include a drawing for a $2,000 couples shopping spree with the hosts. The first 100 lucky attendees will receive a signed copy of Giuliana and Bill’s book, “I Do, Now What?” Other FNO festivities include Kiss & Tell Lipstick Readings, in-store shopping incentives, trunk shows and more.
