ANNE OF AVEN­TURA

Anne Fon­taine hails from Rio de Janeiro, but Miami is where she be­longs. Known for her iconic white shirts—along with time­less ac­ces­sories and full sar­to­rial op­tions—the de­signer opened a new store for Aven­tura shop­pers to in­dulge in the best of her spring col­lec­tion. Think menswear-in­spired sil­hou­ettes with retro flair, sporty bomber jack­ets, and ro­man­tic pleats. Aven­tura Mall, 19501 Bis­cayne Blvd., 305-935-3250; an­ne­fontaine.com

BEACH BUDDY

“This is a story cus­tom­made for the Florida life­style,” de­signer To­mas Maier says of his beach cap­sule col­lec­tion. For both men and women, the line nods to the roots of the brand with swimwear, knitwear, and jersey looks for sum­mer. Chic sun­hats and tow­els make for the per­fect sand and sun com­pan­ions.

HAPPY FEET

Edgardo Oso­rio—the shoe de­signer who de­lighted Miami with his shop last win­ter—teamed up this month with model, phi­lan­thropist, and Happy Hearts Fund founder Pe­tra Nem­cova (who started the foun­da­tion to help those af­fected by nat­u­ral dis­as­ters after she her­self sur­vived the 2004 In­dian

A TASTE OF BRAZIL

Jorge Bischoff chose our city (where else?) for his first stateside store. Fit­ting for Miami, his avant-garde looks and Brazil­ian style make for off­beat but on­trend out­fits. Don’t leave with­out a pair of em­bel­lished floral san­dals—your new go-to shoes for the sum­mer. Brick­ell City Cen­tre, 701 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786-347-3441; jorge­bischoff.com

JUST IN TIME

It seems Henry & Ashe loves this city just as much as we do. The watch­maker launched The Legacy Au­to­matic, a trib­ute to bustling Miami, with the sky­line en­graved on the time­piece’s case­back. It’s a lim­ited-edi­tion piece, each with its own num­ber. hen­ryan­dashe.com

RETRO RE­LAUNCH

To cel­e­brate its golden an­niver­sary, Bot­tega Veneta is re­launch­ing one of its most iconic bags. The City Knot, a clas­sic from 1970, is now avail­able in leop­ard print and a but­ter­fly mo­tif in ad­di­tion to its time­less leather ver­sion. Qual­ity never goes out of style.

PAINT THE TOWN RED

The un­mis­tak­able red soles are com­ing to the De­sign Dis­trict this month as Chris­tian Louboutin’s much-an­tic­i­pated store opens its doors. The two-story space—built with sus­tain­abil­ity in mind us­ing Bark House po­plar tree pan­els and lo­cally sourced Florida key­stone—will of­fer men’s, beauty, and women’s col­lec­tions. For some se­ri­ous color, we sug­gest the Mex­i­caba, a se­ries of one-of-a-kind bags made in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Taller Maya to sup­port ar­ti­sans in the Yucá­tan Penin­sula.
