Fear not that Valentino has left the Forum Shops at Caesars. The venerable fashion designer is just revamping the former boutique into Valentino RED, the label's more youthful, lower priced diffusion line. This, the more fashion-forward and slimmest of Valentino's lines, is getting a $500,000 makeover in the 3,502-square-foot space.
Back in July, Valentino opened its first U.S. accessories-only boutique In the Forum Shops at Caesars next to the new M Missoni. The 750-square-foot space features the brand's iconic custom black and white window pane flooring as well as molded gypsum curtains, layered mirror glass walls and carbon fiber poles.
