A Miami store may be on the horizon for Lorena Saravia, a stark, sultry, minimalistic Mexican designer label that happens to have won Vogue's Who's Next contest in 2013. According to WWD, the brand just got a crazy huge lump of cash from an investment fund, and is looking to dip its toes into the U.S., namely in our not-so-sunny-at-the-moment city, New York, Los Angeles and Tucson, Arizona. The brand is currently carried at Saks Fifth Avenue, however they're looking to mosey on in to Bloomingdales as well.
As for the brick and mortar location, it seems its too soon to tell, however educated predictions can be made. When it comes to luxury, it seems Bal Harbour Shops and the Design District have first dibs. This brand, which which has a similar dark and dramatic aesthetic as Rick Owens, seems well suited for the latter, but who knows? Lincoln Road seems to be scooping up its fair share of stores as of late, so one can never tell where the next major luxury store will pop up next.
