Miami’s Design District has worked its way up to a leading U.S. luxury fashion destination, rivaling New York City and Beverly Hills. Big name design houses from all over the world have taken to the area with the latest flagship from the house of Hermès.
The new shop boasts 13,000-square-feet and is the third flagship store the company operates in the US, Madison Avenue in New York City and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills round out the trilogy. The French flagship consists of three floors, to showcase everything from their iconic leather goods to their new men’s collection, which is featured front and center on the first floor. Their in house Saint-Louis crystal shop, which has its own entrance, is the first in the United States. On their rooftop garden stands a sculpture of the brightly colored horseman logo, visible from the street below, waving orange flags. Only Hermès’ flagships in New York, Paris, Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, and now Miami are lucky enough to be graced by the horseman’s presence.
