We got to check out the store before anyone else. Book your ticket to Miami now!
When we moved to Florida from NYC a few years ago, I was worried I’d miss out. And the truth is, there is plenty I miss from NYC, and much of that does involve really great shopping and events with the brands we work with in the city. What I don’t miss is the cold weather, and each December for the first week of the month, Art Basel takes over Miami and all of our NYC fashion friends come down. The weather is amazing in Miami this time of year, and there’s no better place to be than experiencing good food and great shopping.
If you haven’t been to Miami to see the Design District, you should put it on your list, because it’s one of the best outdoor shopping areas I’ve ever been to. And now, things have just gotten sweeter, with Prada opening its new store in the heart of the Miami Design District. The store doesn’t open to the public until tomorrow, but yesterday, we were able to pop in and take pictures before any other outlet to share with you.
The Prada store sits in the heart of Miami’s Design District, just north of Downtown and west of South Beach, and was inspired by the city of Miami itself. There are nods to Miami’s signature Art Deco style, with clear influence of Latin America. The interior and exterior of the store gathered influence from classical modernism of the 1960s. On the inside of the store, original and unique furnishings by mid-century Brazilian designers are on display. The furnishings inside are unique and crafted from Brazilian rosewood, which makes the store more of an experience than just any store. The exterior of the store is all about precision, showcasing a series of dense white vertical blades clustered over large windows. The overall feel of the store is intimate and comfortable, welcoming you in to peruse and shop.
Of course the Prada items being sold inside are what you’d expect, including Prada clothing, handbags, accessories and footwear for both men and women. We were delighted to be some of the first to experience this store firsthand and if you’re in Miami, be sure to check out the Prada store, peruse the Design District, and grab great food.
