With year round balmy temperatures and blue skies, one can understand how some may think that there aren’t really seasons in South Florida. But one season that does not go unnoticed here is gala season. From the Young Arts fete to the party at PAMM, the social season is now in session. If you’re wondering what to don to make you the belle of the ball, head to the Design District and hit up these shops to get dressed to the nines.

With the start of the New Year, time is on your side. And thanks to the Hublot Galerie, it can also be on your wrist. The new concept store opened last month with Usain Bolt and local children sprinting to be the first through the doors (and to raise awareness for his foundation) marks the 11th freestanding boutique in the United States for the luxury Swiss watchmaker. Blending in perfectly with the artistic feel of the Design District, Hublot Galerie boasts the Art of Fusion, incorporating the brand’s love of art, and will be first store to carry the most “exclusive limited-edition and high complication pieces from around the globe.”

Rejoice in red as Pantone has just announced that the color of 2015 is Marsala. The earthy, reddish-brown hue is already popping up in collections and there will be a lot more of the crimson tide splashing on the style scene the next few seasons.

The World of Mr. Somebody & Mr. Nobody marries the distinct sensibilities of a Wes Anderson film and an African souk.  For two weeks during Art Basel, this artful living and retail space presented a singular aesthetic of clothing, art and treats selected by founders/designers Sharon Lombard and Heidi Chisholm, and curated with Cathy Leff.  Perhaps most endearing was the familiarity and communal aspects of the Mr. Somebody & Mr. Nobody marketplace, which along with offering things for sale, offered special pods for snacking, talking with friends, and even napping (much needed during Miami art week!)

If there seems to be a lot popping up around the Design District these days, it’s because there is.
