Big Things Are Poppin’: Art Week Pop-Ups in the Design District
Luxury is no stranger to the Miami Design District. So it is no surprise that when brands want to have a presence in Miami, even if just for a short while, they set their sites on the District. Just in time for Art Week, a new crop of pop-up shops are taking up residency in Miami’s most shoppable stretch of streets. From Gwyenth Paltrow’s goop GIFT to Pasticceria Marchesi, created by Lorenzo Bertelli, son of Prada designer Miuccia Prada, be sure to stop and shop these must-see boutiques before they are gone.
Knock out all your holiday shopping for everyone on your list at goop GIFT.
This curated destination features categories that take the guess work out of gifting as they’ve broken down the store into 12 categories including “The Health Nut,” “The Traveler,” “The Stocking Stuffer,” and the “Ridiculous but Awesome.” There are items ranging from apparel, beauty, home and experiences, and kids from designers around the world. Speaking of kids, they exclusively sell Mattel items for “The Under 18” that features a Hello Hologram Barbie, an interactive digital assistant that offers girls a new way to engage with Barbie throughout the day, and Barbie Dreamhouse, the ultimate gift to wow any Barbie fan with endless storytelling potential. Oh, and did we mention, mini Christian Louboutins?!
