I LOVE LUCIA
No one does Italian glam like Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Need proof? How about the new handbag in Dolce & Gabbana’s oh-so-fab collection? The Lucia—a perfect complement to nearly any sartorial choice—not only comes with a shoulder strap for hands-free flair, but it’s available in a variety of textures and colors, including a mini gold embellished version for those desiring a more decadent look.

COS YOU WANT IT
The best way to build a wardrobe is with essentials, and since opening in the Miami Design District, the Swedish brand COS has made it easier than ever to find the basic pieces that no chic Miamian can live without. Offering everything from simple tees to sleek silhouettes and modern accessories, the shop is filled with versatile items in finely textured fabrics for creating any number of smart, minimalist looks for spring.

Known for their timeless elegance and handwoven craftsmanship, the fashions of Loro Piana are ideal for Magic City sophisticates—and now they’re available in a new Design District boutique, where shoppers can luxuriate in the fine natural fabrics employed in pieces for women, men, even children. Try on the coral-orange dress or tailored trousers for a new daytime look. Miami Design District, 151 NE 39th St., 305-576-6589; loropiana.com
TURN UP THE HEAT
Shoe lovers, rejoice! Giuseppe Zanotti has teamed up with two of music’s hottest players for a pair of super-sexy collaborations. In January, Jennifer Lopez put her sensual yet sophisticated spin on six styles of cut-out, open-toe, and minimal sandals in creamy nudes and dreamy pastels. And this month, Zayn Malik adds two boot and two sneaker designs in green and black with his Giuseppe for Zayn capsule collection of stylish yet masculine footwear.
