Lanvin has opened its first West Coast boutique in Las Vegas, the brand’s second door in the U.S., and the first in America to offer the label’s men’s wear collection.
The 3,000-square-foot boutique, which opened last week, is on the ground floor of the luxury haven Crystals at CityCenter, and follows the December opening of Lanvin’s first U.S. store in Bal Harbour, Fla.
The Las Vegas store is Lanvin’s third-largest retail space in the world, behind the men’s boutique in Paris and the Ginza flagship in Tokyo. The Las Vegas location also carries women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, Blanche collection, as well as the 22 Faubourg, tailoring, long dresses and 120th anniversary capsules.
The dominant feature of the Las Vegas boutique is a dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass facade, 17-feet tall and 60-feet wide, which will showcasethe theatrical window stagings that have become a recognizable characteristic of the French fashion house.
The store has separate entrances to the men’s wear and women’s wear salons, and a third, more intimate, area that will play host to VIP clients.
The Art Deco design features wood parquet flooring, moulded walls and antique chandeliers, mixed with brushed steel fixtures and industrial spotlights. A collection of photos taken from the Lanvin archives adorns the wall framing the entrance to the VIP salon.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
