Ready to step up your garment game? These local designers are putting the Magic City on the fashion map.
FABRICE TARDIEU The Miami designer is responsible for the stylish kicks spotted on the feet of the city’s elite (Shannon Allen, Cedric Gervais, and Daniela Botero are all fans). And it’s easy to see why: Tardieu’s handcrafted men’s and women’s shoes are made of the finest materials, mounted on sleek rubber soles for maximum comfort. Lace up a pair—like the black crocodileprint Runner 02 ($550) for guys or the Maximilian 73 Anaconda ($525) in aqua for women—and you’ll be strutting the streets like a Miami model. 7221 NW Second Ave., Miami, 786-631-4194; fabrice tardieu.com ROXHOUSE What happens when a DJ and a designer combine forces? They create an energetic, funky accessory collection fit for both men and women. Alexis Dawn Geller and her Miami-based jewelry line Roxhouse worked with global sensation DJ Ruckus on the Ruckus for Roxhouse collection, incorporating a variety of light-catching gemstones. Standouts include the black-on-black Keeping It Classy bracelet ($125). Outside the collab, there are plenty of pieces just for the ladies, like the Tasseled Edge necklace ($95) with a punch-packing fuchsia pendant and gray leather tassel. roxhouse.com JAEST Local designer Erika Hanna wants you to dress beautifully at an affordable cost. Luckily for us, she’s making that happen with JAEST (pronounced “jast”), her apparel and accessory line of elevated basics. The everyday Nayla tank ($54), for instance, is made with micromodal from bamboo in standard black or white, and the Ani chain necklace ($35) in gold is a simple, sparkling addition to your ensemble. Hanna’s chic and updated twist on stylish staples has been praised by fashion outlets like Whowhatwear.com for embodying Miami minimalism at its absolute best. jaeststudios.com
