ARI KNOWS BEST

Moshe Ben-ari—pur­veyor of all things cool for guys—brings his New York hard-hit­ters to Collins Av­enue. The best part? The shop not only fea­tures clas­sic items from denim to blaz­ers and every­thing in be­tween (like the Goti biker-in­spired neck­lace), but also of­fers made-to-mea­sure ser­vices to help you cre­ate a look that’s truly your own. 2317 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 786773-1152; arisoho.com

LIT­TLE TREA­SURES

Louis Vuit­ton isn’t just luxe ready-to-wear and cov­etable ac­ces­sories. Its new gift­ing col­lec­tion is full of the most mag­i­cal marvels. En­ter LV Essentials, con­sist­ing of home pieces like trays and pocket mir­rors; Back to Work, with leather-bound note­books, pen­cils, and other sup­plies; and Play & Dream, a whim­si­cal ar­ray of knick­knacks in­clud­ing a dice set, yo-yo, and play­ing cards for the chicest game night in town. Mi­ami De­sign District, 140 NE 39th St., 305-573-1366; louisvuit­ton.com

ALL THE JEW­ELS

As if the De­sign District wasn’t luxe enough, Van Cleef & Ar­pels just opened its lat­est bou­tique at the high-end shop­ping des­ti­na­tion. With a con­tem­po­rary façade that boasts brass leaves—a nod to na­ture, the mai­son’s source of in­spi­ra­tion—a tran­quil aes­thetic, and new pieces from the Friv­ole col­lec­tion (think heartshaped petals and geo­met­ric lines), there’s no short­age of high­jew­elry finds. Mi­ami De­sign District, 140 NE 39th St., 786-792-392; van­cleefan­darpels.com

PRE­CIOUS TIME

The lat­est state­ment-mak­ing en­try in the luxury watch mar­ket? Versace’s new Palazzo Em­pire watch. Topped with a Me­dusa head, this piece drifted down the run­way in the la­bel’s first-ever sporty show to date, and is of­fered in clas­sic white, black, and navy. But for a pop of punchy color on the wrist, choose the bub­ble-gum pink or color-blocked styles. Mi­ami De­sign District, 186 NE 39th St., 305-5738345; versace.com

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

St-tropez is call­ing. But even if you can’t jet to France, you can cer­tainly chan­nel the chic­ness of the French Riviera with Vile­bre­quin’s new sun­glass line—a first for the swimwear brand. Twen­ty­four uni­sex styles fea­ture rec­tan­gu­lar and round shapes for the mod­ern shop­per, or avi­a­tors for sporty spice. Our pick? The Rally sun­nies in bold blue with Zeiss Blue Smoke Mono lenses (BE­LOW; $295). Sim­ple and clas­sic, just like French style. Bal Har­bour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305861-4022; vile­bre­quin.com

A SLICE OF LIFE

“It’s an im­mer­sive sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence,” says VP and brand di­rec­tor of Vince Tomoko Oguro of the Vince Col­lec­tive, the new life­style plat­form at the brand’s Bal Har­bour space. Branch­ing out beyond cloth­ing and footwear, the Col­lec­tive sells a cu­rated as­sort­ment of art, ac­ces­sories, and home prod­ucts from third-party brands, in­clud­ing bohemian apothe­cary items from Grown Al­chemist and Her­bi­vore Botan­i­cal, and sculp­tural, del­i­cate jew­elry from Ja­panese de­signer Sakaya Davis. Bal Har­bour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-351-0327; vince.com

TOO COOL

Ref­or­ma­tion—pos­si­bly the coolest con­tem­po­rary la­bel of the mo­ment—just opened a Wyn­wood pop-up for those seek­ing ver­sa­tile but ef­fort­lessly sexy pieces. Whether opt­ing for flirty and flo­ral (we like the Tal­lu­lah dress, ABOVE; $388) or an edgier look with the Pis­tol pant, there’s a piece that’s per­fect for every South Florida fash­ion­ista. 219 NW 23rd St., Mi­ami; there­for­ma­tion.com

ALL IN THE FAM­ILY

Per­haps the coolest thing to hap­pen in the Mi­ami art world since Art Basel, Raf Sim­mons—calvin Klein’s much-ac­claimed cre­ative di­rec­tor—has cho­sen the Rubell Fam­ily Col­lec­tion as one of the star play­ers of its spring cam­paign. The images, pho­tographed in the gal­leries of the Rubell, por­tray models in clas­sic Calvin pieces (think men’s briefs, archival denim, and cot­ton) against a back­drop of mod­ern works from Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, and more. Call it the art of fash­ion. Aven­tura Mall, 19501 Bis­cayne Blvd., 305-692-1671; calvin­klein.com
