This summer, Miami's streets are blazing thanks to red-hot stiletto collections, striking timepieces, and chic new shops.
Anne Fontaine’s new store includes timeless yet modern pieces.
ANNE OF AVENTURA
Anne Fontaine hails from Rio de Janeiro, but Miami is where she belongs. Known for her iconic white shirts—along with timeless accessories and full sartorial options—the designer opened a new store for Aventura shoppers to indulge in the best of her spring collection. Think menswear-inspired silhouettes with retro flair, sporty bomber jackets, and romantic pleats. Aventura Mall, 19501 Biscayne Blvd., 305-935-3250
“This is a story custom-made for the Florida lifestyle,” designer Tomas Maier says of his beach capsule collection. For both men and women, the line nods to the roots of the brand with swimwear, knitwear, and jersey looks for summer. Chic sunhats and towels make for the perfect sand and sun companions. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-351-9560
Edgardo Osorio—the shoe designer who delighted Miami with his shop last winter—teamed up this month with model, philanthropist, and Happy Hearts Fund founder Petra Nemcova (who started the foundation to help those affected by natural disasters after she herself survived the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami). Together, they created a dazzling red-and pink-suede heart-adorned stiletto, with 25 percent of sales benefiting Happy Hearts. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-330-6860
TWO WORLDS COLLIDE
Sea & Sky, the newest swim collection from Lands’ End, is the perfect combination of versatile and contemporary suits. Pack your beach bag with the collection’s colorful one- and two-piece styles—from high-neck bikini tops for sporty surfer girls to a wraparound one-piece with sexy cutouts—in solid, floral, and color-blocked styles. Hello, swim season.
A TASTE OF BRAZIL
Jorge Bischoff chose our city (where else?) for his first stateside store. Fitting for Miami, his avant-garde looks and Brazilian style make for offbeat but ontrend outfits. Don’t leave without a pair of embellished floral sandals—your new go-to shoes for the summer. Brickell City Centre, 701 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786-347-3441
JUST IN TIME
It seems Henry & Ashe loves this city just as much as we do. The watchmaker launched The Legacy Automatic, a tribute to bustling Miami, with the skyline engraved on the timepiece’s caseback. It’s a limited-edition piece, each with its own number.
To celebrate its golden anniversary, Bottega Veneta is relaunching one of its most iconic bags. The City Knot, a classic from 1970, is now available in leopard print and a butterfly motif in addition to its timeless leather version. Quality never goes out of style. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-864-6247
PAINT THE TOWN RED
The unmistakable red soles are coming to the Design District this month as Christian Louboutin’s much-anticipated store opens its doors. The two-story space—built with sustainability in mind using Bark House poplar tree panels and locally sourced Florida keystone—will offer men’s, beauty, and women’s collections. For some serious color, we suggest the Mexicaba, a series of one-of-a-kind bags made in collaboration with Taller Maya to support artisans in the Yucátan Peninsula. Miami Design District, 155 NE 40th St., 305-576-6820
