Updated: May 6, 2021

Kimpton Angler’s Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach, Fl, and A Non-Agency, a consumer experience marketing consultancy based in New York City, have announced they will host the “Miami Escape,” April 28-May 2, 2021.

The first-ever "Brand Closet Social" will allow guests to socialize, dine and shop in a specially-designed space where they can discover and interact with new and legacy luxury brands, wellness and clean beauty product lines, bespoke services and artwork.

Held at Kimpton Angler’s Poolside Bungalows, the five-day event will feature a specially-curated collection of brands created by emerging women, black and LGBTQI entrepreneurs and artists and luxury icons alike, including:

  • ROYCE New York

  • Pretty Well Beauty (MFlorens, Ilera Apothecary, Flower and Spice, QiAlchemy, SknMuse)

  • Amodern Alchemy

  • RALPH PUCCI (John Koga, Rebecca Moses)

  • Adam Weston

  • Sam Kirk

  • Cush Living

  • Boglioli

  • DMT Custom Clothiers

  • NORTH Menswear


  • Luminary Experiences

  • House of Linnic

According to Michelle Collins, President and Founder of A Non-Agency, who conceived and brought to life the Miami Escape event, said, “We’ve transformed Kimpton Angler’s poolside bungalows surrounding the private, Mediterranean-revival Mermaid pool and courtyard space, into a unique showroom and social space where guests can explore exciting new brands and meet our curated international selection of artists, designers, and experts. We’ve handpicked them to be a part of the Miami Escape experience because they’re authentic and represent the best of emerging and legacy brands and creativity.

“We encourage our event guests to come alone or with friends so that they can enjoy the space for as long as they choose. In addition to dining and shopping, guests will also be able to ask the experts, meet the makers and be eligible to win a complimentary virtual private lesson taught by Tiler Peck, Principal Ballerina at the New York City Ballet,” Collins added.

“Kimpton Angler’s is about celebrating the spirit of discovery, while delivering distinctive and intimate experiences to guests they won’t find anywhere else on the beach. As a sophisticated enclave for those seeking a truly authentic insider’s retreat, we are delighted to bring the ‘Brand Closet Social’ and its showcase of hot new artists and entrepreneurs to the hotel for guests and locals to shop and socialize within an inspired and exclusive setting,” explained Sinem Kaya, General Manager, Kimpton Angler’s Hotel South Beach.

The ‘Brand Closet’: A Look Forward at How Consumers Will Socialize and Shop

The “Brand Closet” concept was created by Collins, who saw an opportunity after the Pandemic hit to transform existing spaces that naturally lend themselves to social relaxation, entertainment, and the discovery of artistry and emerging brands. “Today’s consumers don’t wish to abide by the old ideas of space and time to socialize and shop. They are looking for a highly-personalized experience that allows them to choose how they spend their time with friends, new products and art,” Collins explained.

“We saw an opportunity to partner with and transform beautiful spaces like the one at the Kimpton Angler’s and others for future Brand Closet events because they naturally lend themselves to social relaxation, as well as the discovery of artistry and a brand’s story,” Collins noted. “Not only does the Brand Closet meet the needs of today’s consumers who are more selective about how and where they spend their time and money, but it also allows us to repurpose underutilized space and partner with hospitality, real estate and other evolving industries to ignite their local communities and cultivate a new platform for those retailers and brands who have been lost in the Direct-to-Consumer race.”
