GUCCI ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS LAS VEGAS STORE

GUCCI ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS LAS VEGAS STORE

Gucci is pleased to announce the opening of its newly renovated store at The Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The boutique spans over 10,000 square feet and showcases a wide collection of men’s and women’s shoes, handbags, luggage, small leather goods, jewelry, watches, eyewear, and a selection of men’s ready-to-wear.

With a look that invites customers to feel welcome and relaxed, the interior design is discreet. Soft elements like velvet armchairs offset harder surfaces and industrial elements, such as rivets. Contemporary luxury is suggested not only by the employment of beautiful and idiosyncratic materials, but also through a determinedly spare use of space. In keeping with the elegant and contemporary eclecticism that characterizes Gucci’s collections, the store sees the combination of traditional and modern, industrial and romantic.

Contrasting merchandising elements represent different design codes, combining to create curiosity, inviting customers to feel like they are constantly discovering new aspects of the store.

The mood within the store is one of discretion, where understated drama is created by the surprising and unexpected combination of materials. Marble polychrome inlays produce decorative three-dimensional effects on the floors, while being harmoniously integrated with with the herringbone wood flooring. Juxtaposition of this sort, where opposites forge a new connection, is repeated throughout: technical, mechanical display units contrast with the softness of the rich fabrics that adorn the rooms; round tables offset rectangular ones; varnished iron wall finishes complement sage green and cherry red velvets, used for upholstery and fitting rooms. Throughout the store one finds sumptuous chairs, while vintage oriental rugs are layered over each other for a textured effect. The result is a space that entices, surprises and feels personal to Gucci.

Jaquet Droz’ Enchanted Journey Exhibit kicks off at The Shops at Crystals

Jaquet Droz

AQUET DROZ’ ENCHANTED JOURNEY EXHIBIT KICKS OFF IN LAS VEGAS


As part of a world tour to celebrate 275 years of history, Jaquet Droz brings the Enchanted Journey Exhibit this fall to The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas. After tremendous success in Moscow, Basel, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau, the Jaquet Droz masterpieces arrived in the US allowing this sophisticated audience to appreciate all the facets of Swiss watchmaking and understand how the brand manages to preserve its heritage.

This journey through time sheds light on the relationship between Classic 18th century and contemporary works. Timeless icons, unique automatas and exclusive models from its artistic workshop, reveal the beauty of hand engraved and miniature painted legendary timepieces. The most innovative timekeeping mechanisms sit side-by-side with the simple elegance of enamel or the luster of precious stones and pearls, and magnificent minerals used in custom-made dials.

The exhibition, officially opened last Tuesday, September 30, is being held in front of the Tourbillon Boutique. On the opening day visitors had the chance to see a Jaquet Droz master painter in action, doing demonstrations of the skillful artistry of hand engraving and miniature painting on watch dials.

These most outstanding Jaquet Droz creations can be admired until November 12th, 2014, after which they will travel to the Middle East and Europe.
