Miami Design District's Latest Openings

From fashion boutiques to permanent art installations, Miami Design Distrcit (MDD) has something for everyone, and is a must-visit destination for culture enthusiasts and trendsetters alike. Here are some latest happenings and openings:



NEO Miami Design District is a monthly rotating pop-up that shines a spotlight on emerging fashion brands and designers. The space is a dynamic and immersive experience that brings together rising brands within the same space, allowing them to craft a bespoke and captivating retail environment. NEO Miami Design District serves as a port of entry for national and international brands looking to enter the Miami market and connect with new audiences.

A community-oriented art bookshop and gallery. Since 2009, Dalé Zine has been an unstoppable force in the world of independent printing and publishing. Born from a humble Garfield-themed zine collaboration, it has blossomed into a vibrant cultural hub that celebrates multimedia artists and designers. Dalé Zine prides itself on providing a stage for Miami's most talented creatives to showcase their incredible work. Collaborations with renowned artists like Tim Biskup, Matt Furie, Legowelt, and Friendswithyou are just a taste of the amazing content found among their impressive collection of over 85 titles. The gallery is located at 50 NE 40 St.


EXPRESSION.SERVICE.ESSENCE. is a permanent design installation made of 12 benches created by Dr. Samuel Ross and placed around the Design District. The concept is a study of the importance of public space. The nature of service is to determine and solicit the needs of the populace. The viewer transitions from the actor to the protagonist when both disciplines coalesce. Intimate engagements with functional sculpture often take place as familiar gestures. Sitting, standing, leaning. Each contact with the material is a composite of the senses; be it temperature, color, or surface. An affirmation of our connection to material, to location, to the inanimate and the intangible qualities of the self. The benches were made exclusively for MDD.



Gucci recently debuted a dedicated men’s boutique in the Miami Design District. The opening marks Gucci’s fourth dedicated men’s boutique in the U.S. and second Gucci boutique in the neighborhood. Spanning across two floors, the boutique includes a private VIP shopping area, and carries an expanded offering of men’s products including shoes, ready-to-wear, luggage, small leather goods, and eyewear. 


New York-based Australian designer Dion Lee recently opened his first US flagship store in the heart of the Miami Design District. The opening marks an important milestone for the line which the namesake designed debuted in 2009. 


Alexander Wang’s Miami store features the brand’s full collection, including women’s RTW, footwear and accessories, as well as new collections like the recently re-launched Men’s collection, Bodywear, and newly-launched kid’s collection. Designed by Alexander Wang’s in-house team, the store concept expands on the brand's well-known design codes and sleek aesthetic, featuring mirror-polished stainless steel surfaces and a perimeter of LED walls that provide a backdrop of curated Alexander Wang content. The space is intentionally designed with the customer experience in mind, and features an open, industrial space that keeps shoppers engaged.


JIL SANDER, a high-end luxury brand, is the epitome of modernity and sophistication.  Launched in 1968 by Jil Sander, the fashion house presented its first women’s collection in Hamburg in 1973 and signaled luxury clothes for a new generation of businesswomen. Later in 1997, the first men’s collection was presented introducing a new vision of modern masculinity combined with refined craftsmanship. With its creative legacy of streamlined purity, the brand has pioneered a modern conception of luxury and elegance, enriching the world of fashion with distinctive craftsmanship and design.


Capturing a harmonious blend of timeless sophistication and modern brutalism, a vision conceptualized by image director Hedi Slimane, the two-floor boutique is the epitome of refined architecture, marrying a range of natural stones like grey travertine and Arabescato marble with warmer elements such as oak and brass. The ground floor, primarily dedicated to women’s leather goods along with the brand’s fine jewelry, is adorned with antique gold mirrors and a striking marble “perfume organ.” Upstairs, Celine Homme and women’s ready-to-wear collections are displayed amidst glass and polished stainless-steel showcases, aligned with a Basaltina tile grid.


In 1978 Renzo Rosso started Diesel with the intention of creating the world’s most innovative denim. Since its start, Diesel has used “For Successful Living” as a slogan for the brand’s DNA. Through a long and storied history of strong, ironic and playful campaigns, Diesel has become a leader in advertising as well as in fashion. Where the world zigged, Diesel zagged, and in the 35 years since its founding, the brand still embraces the same ethos.


Golden Goose is a collective founded on a passion for all things that are “perfectly imperfect”, authentic, and unique. Born in 2000, Golden Goose quickly became one of the most successful Italian brands of the decade. Extremely high quality, attention to detail and the "lived-in" look have become the distinctive features of Golden Goose. The brand perfectly merges artisanal craftsmanship and the Italian “hand-made tradition,” creating outfits for every day that combine Italian wearability with an urban vintage flavor.
