Tiffany and Co. has opened in the Design District, and it's totally worthy of a croissant and an LBD, a la Audrey Hepburn. The store opened on Friday and boasts a huge Art Deco influence, starting with the Grand steel facade, which kind of makes you feel as though you're strolling through 5th Avenue. There's a huge mural with pastel and jewel tones inside, which adds a bit of color to the store's rather neutral-looking palate, as well as featured works from artists chosen by Tiffany's design director, Francesca Amphitheatrof. Because this is the Design District, and it's almost like an unspoken requirement to feature art in your store (see Max Mara's soon to open pad, and Zenga's recently opened one). If you go upstairs, you'll find the brand's less expensive lines.
According to the Miami Herald, it's the store's first free-standing location in Miami, because if you'll remember, Tiffany currently has locations at Bal Harbour Shops and, more recently, at Aventura Mall.
