The day is finally here. Mulberry just opened its very first boutique in Vegas at the Forum Shops at Caesars, next to Dior Beauty and facing the Fountain of the Gods.
This boutique has several firsts for the brand. Mulberry commissioned British leather artist Genevieve Bennett to create a stunning collection of leather wall tiles carved out in beautiful tonal leather, of course inspired by Mulberry's heritage of leather craftsmanship. The Forum Shops location features Mulberry's first-ever wall of falling leaves, taken from the iconic Mulberry tree logo to create a subtle and elegant pattern on a wall.
Inspired by Mulberry's roots in the English countryside the design uses color and textures inspired by natural materials. Hand-carved and untreated oak is used for shelving, and Somerset limestone is used for the floor, laid out in the style of traditional parquet flooring and reminiscent of traditional English country houses. The store is divided into areas for a calm and elegant shopping environment, with neutral colors allowing the products to stand out. The Forum Shops store is the first Mulberry store in North America to feature a new store design concept.

To celebrate its first Las Vegas store, Mulberry has created a capsule collection of limited edition embellished pieces, available exclusively in Las Vegas at Mulberry inside The Forum Shops. A sumptuous black suede clutch, called the Clemmie, is studded with dozens of gunmetal rivets for a truly statement bag.
