The Exciting New Luxury Shops Coming To The Design DistrictApril 24, 2015
Once a neglected warehouse district fallen into urban decay, the Design District has become one of the forerunners of Miami’s rise into a global cultural and commercial hub. As its name makes clear, the community is now a center of art, fashion, creative start-ups, and other vibrant enterprises – and major luxury brands have taken notice.
Thanks to both its burgeoning population and its role as a crossroads between other booming neighborhoods like Buena Vista, Midtown, and Wynwood, the Design District has become the location of choice for the world’s most upscale shops and boutiques. It is even managing to rival long-established local luxury hubs like Lincoln Road and Bal Harbour Shops. As Haute Living notes:
Loewe and Emilo Pucci are the latest to join the design party. Loewe’s brings their Spanish roots to the boutique with an authentic 18th century structure called ahorreo. Found in a small town near the border of Galicia and Portugal it stands atop of the selling floor and underscores the brand’s Spanish heritage. This shop marks the first North American store opening since Jonathan Anderson became the creative director for the storied leather and fashion company owned by the behemoth LVMH.
Currently on display at the shop are unique one of a kind leather bowls, just back from the yearly design convention in Milan called the Salone del Mobile, Milan. Mr Anderson worked with the artisan Jose’ Luis Bazan to create these sleek objects with no practical use except for decoration. You can see them at Loewe, 110 NE 39th Street, Miami Fl.
The fact that Loewe chose the Design District of all contenders to open its first store on the continent speaks volumes about the area’s growing global profile. This will no doubt signal many other notable brands to get in on the action while there is still room.
These are hardly the first stores to move in either. Renowned brands such as Louis Vuitton, LVMH, Fendi, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Sephora have already established themselves here, following in the footsteps of Louboutin, which lead the trend in 2009, and Dior, Cartier, and Hermes, which came in 2011.
Among the other brands planning to arrive are Miu Miu, Tom Ford Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and Van Cleef & Arpels. Renowned local developer Dacra will open 60 stores by the end of spring, with another 60 stores coming in 2016 as part of the Paradise Plaza project (which will include a condo and hotel).
In short, the Design District is fast becoming the premier Mecca of all things luxurious and stylish. This development alone is as a good a reason as any to invest in Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate or in the many Pre-Construction Condos in Miami.
