By 2017, the Design District is going to look a whole lot bigger. Developer Craig Robins told the Miami Herald that about 60 stores and restaurants will join the 70 shops that have already opened or will by Basel, the most recent being Miu Miu, Pucci, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Loewe, and soon, Harry Winston. But this new roster of stores? Oh, it's good. Really good.
Dolce & Gabbana is opening in the Design District, reports the Herald, and a wave of new contemporary stores like Diane Von Furstenberg, Rag & Bone, and Marc Jacobs are set to open on Northeast 1st Ave., between 39th and 40th streets. Also, the luxury group Kering plans to open stores for its brands there, which includes Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Christopher Kane, Saint Laurant, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, and Sergio Rossi. Kering hasn't confirmed which stores will be opening yet.
A few of your favorites will be expanding too. Christian Louboutin, Prada, and Céline will be opening shiny, new two-story flagships as well.
