Here’s What the Shops Are Selling at Encore

The boutiques carry designers not found anywhere else in the city.

No need to lay all your cards on the table: You can do some serious damage to a single plastic one at the shops at the Encore Boston Harbor. Walk down the corridor off the atrium across from fine dining Italian spot Sinatra, and you’ll find four high-end boutiques with storefronts that still boast the Wynn name.

The Wynn Collection (really wish they had changed it) is for the ladies. Gold metal lined racks display a carefully edited selection of luxury clothing for every occasion, from daytime power lunches to nighttime cocktail hours and celebratory dinners. Find old favorites like Nicole Miller, Alice and Olivia, and Victoria Beckham, but also discover new brands not found in any other Boston stores. There are fancy cashmere wraps lined with fur collars from Vintage Shades, glitzy beaded dresses from Grayse, the finest structured silhouettes of Yigal Azrouël, and Italian knits from Vicedomini.

Along the back wall, shelves feature colorful blended leather bags from Nancy Gonzalez, the whimsical heels of Sophia Webster, and bejeweled creations from Judith Leiber, including one special clutch designed exclusively for the Encore. There are also delicate gold necklaces from Sydney Evan and everyone’s favorite oversized Gucci shades.

Wynn Men’s (again, yikes) is next door to the women’s store, and although smaller, is just as posh. There isn’t any formal suiting, but there are colorful colored shirts from Z Zegna, blazers from John Varvatos and quirky patterned button-downs from Etro. Some guys will be happy to see hard-to-find leather kicks from Bally, and snazzy loafers from Jimmy Choo.

At Wynn Beauty, there are enough potions and lotions for everyone to pretend they didn’t stay up all night gambling. There’s a huge selection of Tom Ford makeup, nourishing anti-aging skincare from miriamquevedo, organic skincare from Eminence, masks from Knesko, and tons of Moroccon Oil hair products.

And although you’ll most likely come to Encore to lose track of time, if you feel like finding it, there’s also a Watches & Switzerland store that carries sophisticated time pieces from Omega, IWC, and Hublot.

With easy parking and a spot far from the commotion of the casino floor, this mini mall could be your new favorite shopping spot. Or you could come here just to look–Assembly Row is only ten minutes away.
