Our cover star is architect and designer Peter Marino who is noted nearly as much for his iconoclastic personal style as for his list of corporate and individual clients. On the list is the storied house of Chanel who has commissioned Marino for over 200 projects, including the recently opened Miami Design District boutique. Another exciting store opening on the horizon is Zimmerman –the luxury Australian label famous for their Boho-chic dresses and swimwear. Founder Nicky Zimmerman tells us how her hometown of Sydney influences each collection and why it continues to be her number one place to be. This issue also celebrates all things denim including Mike Amiri’s custom made jeans. Pop into the MDD store and check out the hand distressed and embellished pieces plus the brand’s first standalone womenswear collection. L.A. brand RE/DONE gives jeans a second-life along with t shirts, sweats and eventually cars. The California cool label puts sustainability front and center without sacrificing an ounce of style. We round out the issue with art and design including a profile on Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz who celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the de la Cruz Collection and discuss their role as leaders and supporters of Miami’s art community. Our Design Miami/ section is packed with inspiring figures bound to pique everyone’s curiosity, from boundary-pushing designer Harry Nuriev to Jolie Ngo who takes ceramics into unchartered territories.
