|LasVegas exclisive at TOPSHOP.|
TOPSHOP has long been known to fashion editors and international travelers as the place to find eclectic pieces by hot British design talent and for fashionable staples that don’t cost a month’s rent. Until two years ago, when the New York location opened, there was no way for stateside fashionistas to get their fix of U.K. flair without going online. The Las Vegas store is the third U.S. location to open, with a Los Angeles location soon to follow.
When the 20,000-square-foot store opens their doors, shoppers will be treated to the best of British trends and an exclusive, limited-edition collection created just for Sin City.
“We were inspired by all that we associate with Las Vegas, the sparkle and the glitz,” design director Jacqui Markham said. “In creating this line, we referenced retro casino graphics and the old-style glamor of speakeasy clubs and dancing girls.”
The women’s collection is set to include sequined dresses, shorts and skirts, evening clutches and colorful sandals embellished with rhinestones and crystals.
“We incorporated iconic motifs such as dollar signs, slot machine cherries and playing card symbols into the styles in a playful, tongue-in-cheek way,” Markham said.
The collection will also include a signature nail polish, called Razzmatazz. “It’s a super-glittery polish, as the name suggests, inspired by the Razzmatazz of Vegas nightlife,” Markham explained.
The TOPMAN brand, which focuses on menswear, also features Las Vegas-inspired items. In addition to knit ties, leather belts and an exclusive suede-and-canvas bag, the brand’s classic suit will hearken back to Rat Pack-era Las Vegas.
“I wanted pieces that referenced the traditional time of Sinatra,” Gordon Richardson, TOPMAN design director, said. “Tailoring played a big part of the look of that era. With that in mind, we’ve created suiting…that is slimmer and sharp in construction.”
In addition to the usual retail fixtures, the local TOPSHOP /TOPMAN will also offer guests a few additional perks. Instead of Muzak or recycled hits, the store features two DJ booths. A cosmetic area will offer shoppers the ability to come into the store, shop for a new nightlife look and be made up for a night out on the town.
Perhaps the most inviting service are the luxurious private shopping suites and fitting rooms, staffed by personal shoppers and outfitted with their own private entrances. Services are available by appointment.
Guests attending the grand opening will enjoy complimentary makeovers and may be lucky enough to receive a gift card by TOPSHOP style girls circulating through the store. Shoppers who spend up to $100 in store will also walk away with an exclusive glitter clutch as a gift.
TOPSHOP/TOPMAN is located on the ground level of the Fashion Show Mall, 3200 S. Las Vegas Blvd. For more information, call 702-369-8382 or visit them online at topshop.com.
