The Las Vegas Strip will soon be home to more high-end retail brands, thanks to the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ newly announced lineup of stores and boutiques.

The Cosmopolitan released its list of nine luxury brands Wednesday, all of which are new to the Las Vegas market. The resort described the collection of shops as avant-garde and eclectic.

The stores include British brand AllSaints Spitafields, women’s retailer Beckley, CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, denim retailer DNA2050, Molly Brown’s Swimwear, Dutch housewares boutique Droog, eyewear retailer Retrospecs & Co., Stitched men’s apparel and Skins 62 Cosmetics.

“Retail in the city has become expected, but our thoughtful merchandising and unique mix is specifically curated for the brand and unlike anything that has come before it. The experience at the boutiques is an extension of our commitment to creating a sense of discovery for the guest,” Cosmopolitan Chief Executive John Unwin said.

Located at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue, the 36,000-square-foot retail area at Cosmopolitan is more of a small collection of stores than a mall. Visitors will be able to access the shops from the pedestrian walkway that connects Planet Hollywood and CityCenter.

The $3.9 billion, 2,995-room resort-casino between the Bellagio and CityCenter is planning a soft opening Dec. 15 with a grand opening celebration on New Year’s Eve weekend.

The resort debuted its first TV advertisement on Sunday night with the slogan, “Just the right amount of wrong.”

  1. like the LV Strip needs more McDonald's, Denny's, Walgreen's, & CVS'.

  2. Why are some opposed to competition? If business people invest their money to open stores or build manufacturing plants, it benefits all of us in terms of employment and choices. That's a good thing.

  3. Very interesting mix of retail. It's a sign of retail sophistication, and it gives me a reason to visit. I wish the Cosmopolitan the best of luck.

  4. Las Vegas is also the Luxury Shopping Capital of the World. I hope all our retailers are successful since Las Vegas is so much more than just Gaming.
    The Best Entertainment, The Best Shopping, The Best Gaming - Go Las Vegas!

  5. Whoop-dee-doo!
    I wish them all well, but none of them excites me.

  6. The talk radio nuts, and Vegas area kooks drive off the sophisticated European tourists.

  7. "Just the right amount of wrong."

    Geez, talk about executive subliminal, public confessions... or is that the foundation of thought for all of MGM's recent, pitter-patter brainstorms.

    Anyway...I wish MGM luck with the latest of their "right amount of wrong" ideas.

  8. sustainebel, you're right! These places are all starting to look the same to me!

    Thanks for correcting me, but what does this mean?

    Are MGM's "wrong ideas" contagious?

    If Cosmo is next door to CityCenter and Bellagio is next door to Cosmo, the Bellagio is next! Oh no!

    RUN SUSTAIN-ABLE!!! The LV Strip has a bad idea PLAGUE!!!
