Once again, we are at the center of attention with so many global luxury brands and foreign developers looking to strengthen their stake in this market and Latin America via Miami. A perfect example of this revived phenomenon is the newly opened, two story Louis Vuitton Maison flagship store at Aventura Mall. Vuitton’s commitment to South Florida is a true testament to the jet-set nature of the Magic City we call home. While on the subject, if the idea of a personalized handbag sounds irresistible, we invite you to learn about the bespoke custom design service in One & Only Louis (page 72). And the best part – no airline ticket required. For most, spring is the time to refresh, revive and rejuvenate. We bring you expert advice to do this and more with your wardrobe, beauty regimen, closets, home decor, and wine cellar. Turn to page 86 for the top “must have” trends to update your spring wardrobe from the buyers at Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, The Webster, and Intermix. Get organized to the “9s” with expert advice from California Closets, Organize & Edit, and Piret Johanson in Shelved Dreams (page 76).
Rejuvenate your skin and body at Spa Internazionale, or at home with our editors’ picks, to keep your skin glowing and radiant year-round (page 40). Every home could use freshening up come spring.
