ALEXANDER THE GREAT Stroll the halls of The Shops at Crystals and you’ll fund a barrage of storied fashion houses that call CityCenter home—Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Gucci. It reads like a lineup of Milan and Paris Fashion Week’s finest, and it’s only continuing to grow. Let’s welcome Alexander McQueen to the neighborhood, shall we? As the London-based brand’s third Vegas boutique, the space was conceived by Creative Director Sarah Burton in collaboration with architect Smiljan Radic and will house the complete range of McQueen’s magnificent offerings, from ready-to-wear apparel for him and her to accessories, bags and shoes. And in true McQueen fashion, innovation awaits in the form of cylindrical glass dressing rooms lined with fabric for discretion. Go ahead, shop to it. alexandermcqueen.com; simon.com/mall/the-shops-at-crystals
