Miu Miu Moves In

Fashionistas rejoice: Miu Miu has arrived in Las Vegas.

The designer label created by the powers at Prada in 1993 just opened its newest boutique in Crystals at CityCenter. The store finds itself in good company at the upscale retail complex: In addition to soon-to-open Prada, Crystals also houses fashion powerhouses Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Versace.

Miu Miu’s new 1,640-square-foot marketplace, designed by Roberto Baciocchi, is split in three distinct areas for women’s wear, shoes and accessories. Meanwhile, fans of the luxury brand will recognize the wallpaper: All of the store’s walls (and ceiling) use Miu Miu’s signature damask fabric.
