Rock & Republic may be canning its opulent fashion show, but the lifestyle brand isn't dropping the proactive approach. A more accessibly priced, and aptly titled, Recession Collection of denim has already been announced for March 1st. And a chic boutique, the brand's first location in North America, just opened alongside the likes of Chanel and Hermès in the Esplanade at the Encore from Wynn Las Vegas.

Pictured here, Andrea Bernholtz, President Rock & Republic and Andrew Pascal, President Wynn and Encore Las Vegas, show off the new space. In addition to a full selection of R&R jeans and R&R ready-to-wear for men and women. There's also R&R sunglasses, R&R bags, R&R shoes and a full R&R cosmetic collection of primers, illuminizers, blushes and 48-pigment collection of eye shadow.

It used to be that encores were only called for when the rock show was truly off the hook. These days, it's usually part of the regular show. At Encore's Esplanade space, we get a riff on greatest hits with Rock & Republic fulfilling the important niche for accessible American fashion with a strong style perspective.
