Chiara De Luca, an actress and film producer who lived in Paris, got hooked on a favorite workout activity of the French — l’aquabiking. It seems aqua cycling is all the rage in France and in Italy, which doesn’t seem far fetched considering the culture of cycling in Europe. So she came to Miami and opened ElementAqua, a studio in Little River devoted exclusively to aquatic fitness with a focus on aquacycling.

They keep upping the ante, first snagging Tom Colicchio to oversee their restaurant, then getting a top New York boutique to move in, going after the cool crowd with the rooftop pool and restaurant Watr (see my writeup on Sunday Funday), and most recently, opening the first US outpost of luxe UK Bamford Haybarn Spa.

Even from people in my gym populated by Latin fashionistas. The vibrant colors , feminine and creative designs are no less than eye popping. All of the clothes are designed and made in Brazil by a mother and daughter team – Tatyane and Jane Martins — who opened up their retail outlet in Little River in a cool area of shops, galleries and work spaces of the creative set. And even better yet, there’s a special readers deal they’re offering.
