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
