Une grande fête

Hermès championed the grand opening of its two-story, 13,000 square-foot boutique in The Shops at Crystals with a cocktail reception and private dinner  for 200 inside an elegant dome at Red Rock Canyon. “We outgrew our original space much faster than we ever anticipated,” said Hermès President and CEO Robert Chavez.

“With this boutique, we wanted to offer broader and more extensive options to our clients here.”

Guests sipped Champagne and wine while wandering the space designed by Paris architecture firm IDAI, which showcased the French luxury house’s jewelry, perfume and scarves on the first floor.

Inside the dome-shaped, translucent tent, surrounded by mountains at Red Rock Canyon, guests ate a dinner prepared by Bouchon staff.

A moon replica shone down on a center stage with silver cacti and dancers who performed choreography by Katherine Helen Fisher to music provided by Helado Negro.
