In his nine-year tenure at Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci has built the brand into a highly influential fashion powerhouse. And yet the label had no retail presence of its own in the U.S. recently until Wednesday, when Givenchy opened a 3,100-square-foot store at the Wynn Resort Promenade in Las Vegas.
The store is the first step in the house’s North American retail strategy. “This opening constitutes a major milestone for Givenchy as it is our maison’s first store in North America,” said Sebastian Suhl, Givenchy’s chief executive officer. “The United States is a strategic market for Givenchy and we shall roll out retail units in other key cities during 2014.”
