Louis Vuitton Boutique at Crystals is Haute!
High-end retailers are nothing new to the Las Vegas strip, but an entire mall… aimed at the niche market that many have been waiting to see. Well’s that’s haute!
Crystals, the 500,000-square foot luxury retailer and entertainment district at CityCenter opens with 23 shops and restaurants including Tiffany and Company, Cartier and Porsche Design. But it’s the 2½ story Louis Vuitton flagship store that wows me!
MGM Mirge officials wanted something big, bold and energy efficient and that’s exactly what you’ll see along with unique architecture designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind with interior architecture by David Rockwell. It’s like going to a Vegas show!
The shopping mall is considered the gateway from the strip into CityCenter. There’s even a tram that runs from Monte Carlo through Crystals and into the big B—the Bellagio, according to an MGM Mirage spokesperson.
An extra treat… Celebrity Chef Todd English opens his restaurant with Eva Longoria Parker called Beso giving luxe shoppers something else to smile about. The restaurant also doubles as Parker’s nightclub, Eve!
Will you check out the new mall in Las Vegas?
