This year, our dream of having a white Christmas is finally a reality! 243 years after the first recorded snowfall in Miami in 1774, winter has come to Miami again in the form of “White Rain” — Charlap, Hyman & Herrero’s holiday commission in the Miami Design District. The neighborhood is transformed into a high fashion winter wonderland, courtesy of the whimsical and humorous installation.

Can you feel it in the air? No, not the somewhat less humid temperatures, rather the buzz of Art Week. Yes, it’s back and as it seems like every year, bigger.  As the art scene starts to invade Miami, those who will be attending all the events are starting to plan their wardrobe. We caught up with a handful of ladies and gents who shared their Art Week plans including what they plan to wear during one of the most photographed weeks of the season. 

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.
