Last week we announced that Just Cavalli would be opening its second U.S. flagship inside Aventura Mall. Today, we're happy to report that the 1,800-square-foot print paradise is officially ready to shop, and we have your exclusive first look!
This is a HUGE deal. Just Cavalli opened its first U.S. boutique in New York's trendy Soho neighborhood in 2013, so it's a big thumbs up to us for scoring the first boutique in its string of stores to open throughout the country.
"Miami, especially Aventura Mall, is the perfect location for a Just Cavalli boutique. The vibrant energy of Miami goes hand in hand with what the Just Cavalli brand is all about," said Monica Voltolina, Chief Executive Officer of Staff USA, Inc., which produces the Just Cavalli line.
What's interesting about this boutique is that it's quite the juxtaposition inside: Just Cavalli boldness vs. downtown industrial subtlety. Just Cavalli's glamorous and print-heavy ready-to-wear lines for men and women hang neatly against distressed walls, while statement-making shoes, handbags, jewelry, eyewear, and accessories act as pops of color against the boutique's grey hue. Chrome mannequins display the latest additions to the store and you can rest assured that the sofa you're sitting on inside was designed by Roberto Cavalli himself using Just Cavalli fabric swatches. There's nothing like matching your caftan to your sofa poufs, right?
The boutique is located between Macy's and Sears at Aventura Mall, so before you book your summer vaycay, step in and stock up on your Just Cavalli essentials like no one else in the country (except New Yorkers) can.
