Miami Fashion News Part 2
More Miami fashion news, Part 2, including an Australian and Brazilian favorite from last year’s Miami Swim Week, a shop with the largest variety of hats in Miami (and inexpensive too), and a new vintage store that attracts the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Pharell , Kendall Jenner and David Beckham. For Part 1, click here.
Two of my favorite designers uncovered at last year’s Miami Swim Week were the Australian Camilla and Brazilian Isolda. The two are now at Intermix at Bal Harbour Shops and Camilla is at Brickell City Centre. Isolda does off the shoulder tops, shorts, skirts and dresses in cotton with Carmen Miranda like, exuberant prints.
Camilla opts for light silk casual frocks with a touch of glitter, and beach tops with eye popping patterns and colors that are sure to elicit looks.
A trip to Intermix in Bal Harbour Shops also revealed the neatest handbag for a fashionista who loves to travel.
If your social calendar requires a hat for men and women and you’re looking for a place with an extensive variety (over 3000 hats) and low prices, check out Hats & Hats, 1836 NE 163rd St. Two friends, one of whom is a serious hat person, swear by it.
They have everything from baseball caps (sequined for her and fun slogans for him) and Panama hats, to berets, picture hats and fascinators. Don’t think luxury brands and a fancy shop (it’s in a strip mall), but do think a place where you’re likely to find something that will do the trick.
A serious vintage shop has come to town, as in a place that’s frequented by the likes of David Beckham, Kendall Jenner, Lenny Kravitz, Pharrell, Rihanna, and Chloe Sevigny in their other five outposts including New York and Beverly Hills. It’s called What Goes Around Comes Around . Don’t think consignment. These shops buy at auction and from individuals and own all of their merchandise. Merchandise is displayed as it would be in a high end boutique as well it should, with price tags for its Hermes Birkins starting at $14,000.
There’s a large selection of the coveted bags as well as Chanel quilted shoulder bags including one with its own case for the rain, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and others. The highly curated collection includes clothing and accessories from the 1880’s-2000’s for both men and women. WGACA has the world’s largest offering of vintage Chanel, and is also known for their authentic vintage rock tees, denim, militaria and Americana. Also find an unexpected collection of Japanese silk kimonos from the 60’s and 70’s.
In addition to the new stand-alone boutique, WGACA opened a shop-in-shop boutique in the Fountainebleau Hotel late last year at 4441 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.The main store is located at 1800 Bay Road, Suite 104. The store can be directly reached at (305) 271–6200 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
