Sugar & Ice, the gelato and sorbet spot at Wynn Las Vegas, may have shut down, but that only means big things for the Wynn Esplanade. Early rumors point to the very first Givenchy store opening in Las Vegas. The space will also serve as the only Givenchy boutique in the United States. It also gives the designer an optimal space overlooking one of Wynn's many waterfall features.
A tipster sends in this: "Givenchy will take over the space formerly occupied by Sugar & Ice. Construction is scheduled through February 2014, with a planned opening of March 1, 2014."
The luxury French brand carries clothing, accessories, perfumes and cosmetics. Actress Audrey Hepburn had a love affair with the brand, and Jacqueline Onassis donned Givenchy gowns for gala events. While ruffle trims and cutouts as well as pinstriped tuxes dominate the collection, look for kitten heels and adorned clutches to complete that Roman Holiday look.
