RIMOWA is one of the leading premium brands worldwide for cases made from aluminum and the high-tech polycarbonate and is one of the few manufacturers of travel luggage still producing in Germany. One could say that RIMOWA is probably the only manufacturer with a history stretching back over more than 110 years with a distinctive, deep-rooted tradition – an exceptional position in the industry. To RIMOWA, “Made in Germany” and “German Engineering” mean outstanding materials, brilliant technology and extraordinary product design, crafted to the highest possible quality. For decades now, the identifying feature of the collections, which are being continually optimized, has been the elegant and unmistakable groove structure of the case shells.
The traditional company with headquarters in Cologne sells its products in over 65 countries worldwide via selected dealers, and its own stores, including the new Flagship boutique at The Shops at Crystals. Spanning over 2,000 square feet, the space will house the largest selection of RIMOWA cases available in Las Vegas, including custom colors such as the summer’s newest color Ipanema Blue and exclusive items including the new leather goods collection and all RIMOWA accessories.
The RIMOWA boutique is now open at The Shops at Crystals.
VALENTINO is pleased to announce the opening of its new boutique at The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas, launching in July 2013.
The 3,000 square foot space continues the contemporary vision developed by Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli in cooperation with architect, David Chipperfield. This concept is visualized in other Valentino boutiques such as Beverly Hills, Milan and most recently, Paris. Fusing heritage and style in a textural context, David Chipperfield encapsulates Valentino’s signature DNA of excellence and intimacy through a fluid, modern and timeless design that subtly plays with contrasts.
The boutique will carry all product categories, including the latest ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe collections. With a more personal and intimate atmosphere than a traditional retail boutique, the series of various rooms are seamlessly connected by homogeneous custom Venetian terrazzo framing through the floors, walls and openings. The brand’s iconic custom black and white window pane flooring is impossible to miss as special brass frames and optic lens lighting focus on this area. Signature Valentino materials such as molded gypsum curtains, layered mirror glass walls and carbon fiber poles recall the brand’s identity and craftsmanship. The custom leather furniture and stylistic fixtures soften the intricate architectural forms and create a warmer, more intimate feeling.
The Shops at Crystals, the only retail destination in the world dedicated exclusively to high-end luxury brands, soon will welcome Richard Mille’s second United States location, a Valentino store featuring the largest collection of products in Las Vegas, an opulent Loro Piana boutique that will feature their coveted new “gifts” line and RIMOWA’s new Vegas flagship boutique. Crystals also will expand its Tourbillon location to become the largest in Swatch Group Ltd’s portfolio. The new shops will begin to open in summer 2013, increasing Crystals’ already impressive roster of world-renowned designers.
“The addition of Richard Mille, Valentino, Loro Piana, RIMOWA and an expanded flagship for Tourbillon is a testament to the ongoing success of Crystals,” said Farid Matraki, senior vice president and general manager of The Shops at Crystals. “Understanding the elevated retail experience visitors to Crystals expect, we seek out retailers that are among the very best in their respective categories which is well-reflected in these latest brands to join our collection.”
Construction has commenced on the new boutiques and openings will take place between July and October 2013.
