Debut of Dazzling New Decorations Heralds the Holiday Season at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace
With the holidays fast approaching, The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is dressing up for the season with festive, new décor adorned throughout the premier retail destination. Anchored by a spectacular and iconic 40-foot feature tree shimmering in gold and white lights and ornaments, the extravagant new decorations also include four Roman Centurion toy soldiers – each eight feet tall – and Instagram-worthy holiday sets and photo backdrops including an oversized laurel wreath and a Roman pediment and column setting with decorative trimmed trees – ideal places to strike the perfect pose.
Designed and created by The James Trogolo Company, a full-service leader in the commercial holiday décor industry, the impressive decorations also include more than 87,000 shimmering lights, custom tapered LED illuminated garland swag spanning column to column, gold roping, regal ornaments and an abundance of Roman shield accents that perfectly complement the distinctive, thematic ambiance of The Forum Shops.
The spectacular 40-foot tree makes an impactful statement in the Festival Court area of The Forum Shops. Featuring 350 branches covered in 42,000 LED lights, the statement tree has a steel frame and weighs more than 9,500 pounds.
Many of the iconic statues of the center are also getting a holiday makeover. The Goddess Fortuna who greets guests as they enter from Caesars Palace casino will be adorned in a Roman holiday sash complete with garland swag and rich red fabric trimmed in gold and finished with a custom clasp with a holiday motif, gold roping and tassels. She is topped off with a golden laurel wreath on her head.
Custom foliage sprays with Roman shield accents, fully trimmed accent trees placed in Roman-style gold urns and illuminated garland adorn the distinctive center’s interior and exterior. Set for debut mid-November and on display throughout the holiday season, the glittering decorations transform the top-performing luxury retail center into a Roman winter wonderland.

Luxury Retailers Debut Reimagined Boutiques
Perfectly clustered near The Fountain of the Gods, a trio of luxury retailers have recently unveiled new store designs and expanded spaces.
Gucci Opens Newly Renovated Store
One of the world’s most desirable fashion houses, Gucci has recently unveiled a newly renovated boutique at The Forum Shops. Spanning more than 10,000 square feet, the reimagined store showcases a wide collection of men’s and women’s shoes, handbags, luggage, small leather goods, jewelry, watches, eyewear, and a selection of men’s ready-to-wear.
With a look that invites customers to feel welcome and relaxed, the interior design is discreet. Soft elements like velvet armchairs offset harder surfaces and industrial elements, such as rivets. Contemporary luxury is suggested not only by the employment of beautiful and idiosyncratic materials, but also through a determinedly spare use of space. In keeping with the elegant and contemporary eclecticism that characterizes Gucci’s collections, the store sees the combination of traditional and modern, industrial and romantic.
The mood within the store is one of discretion, where understated drama is created by the surprising and unexpected combination of materials. Marble polychrome inlays produce decorative three-dimensional effects on the floors, while being harmoniously integrated with the herringbone wood flooring. Juxtaposition of this sort, where opposites forge a new connection, is repeated throughout: technical, mechanical display units contrast with the softness of the rich fabrics that adorn the rooms; round tables offset rectangular ones; varnished iron wall finishes complement sage green and cherry red velvets, used for upholstery and fitting rooms. Throughout the store one finds sumptuous chairs, while vintage oriental rugs are layered over each other for a textured effect. The result is a space that entices, surprises and feels personal to Gucci.
Louis Vuitton Reopens Reimagined Women’s Store
Representing the diverse métiers of the House across women’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, accessories, watches and jewelry, fragrances, travel and publishing, the immersive 6,800 square feet space incorporates innovative architectural and design elements evocative of Louis Vuitton’s unique spaces around the world, the store at The Forum Shops embodies the House’s rich history, craftsmanship, and heritage while integrating ultra-modern components.
The towering eighteen feet high ceiling creates an expansive and airy shopping environment, complemented by the custom terrazzo floor featuring a signature Monogram flower design. A vibrant and colorful thematic design concept is echoed in the curation of vintage and modern furniture and special artworks displayed throughout the store, including photography of the Akhob installation by James Turrell commissioned for Louis Vuitton in Las Vegas.
Louis Vuitton’s historic tradition of hand-crafted personalization is prevalent through an on-site hot stamping service which offers clients the opportunity to personalize a variety of leather goods, and a fragrance engraving service which allows for the customization of an assortment of fragrance bottles within the Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection. More than just a means of identification, personalization sets a truly individual seal on an item, and epitomizes exclusivity and savoir-faire. By offering this service, Louis Vuitton is perpetuating its proud tradition of unique creativity.
Redesigned Balenciaga Now Open
Balenciaga’s store in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace reopened in a new location with an enlarged layout, including the addition of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections alongside bags, accessories, shoes, and sunglasses.
Consistent with new developments in Balenciaga retail architecture, the redesign will reflect the brand’s themes under Artistic Director Demna Gvasalia, particularly ideas of combining elements representative of both industrial and service-oriented environments.
High ceilings are lined with a mix of track lighting and office-like tubular lamps, while floors are covered in a brilliant blue carpet carved with a repeated Balenciaga logo.
Within the merchandising displays, rough pebble stone finishes meet factory-like brushed metal surfaces and floor-to-ceiling glass. A system of conveyer rails—a new Balenciaga signature—hangs throughout the store to display the collections.
