South Beach Shops
1220 Collins Ave., South Beach
While everyone else in fashion was developing e-commerce platforms, retail pioneer Laure Hériard Dubreuil decided to open a 20,000-square-foot brick-and-mortar shop in South Beach in a 1939 Henry Hohauser–designed Art Deco building. The space itself is impeccably designed. Each room has a slightly different vibe (some dark and moody, others light and bright), but it’s all the better to browse in and ultimately spend hours wandering through. Exclusives like palm-leaf-printed silk PJs from For Restless Sleepers, Olympia Le-Tan clutches, Gigi Burris Millinery woven hats, and even a Pantone Universe iPhone case in—yep—the Webster Pink. While Miami was Hériard Dubreuil's first location, she’s since opened locations in Bal Harbour, Costa Mesa, Houston, and New York.
1905 Purdy Ave., South Beach
Eberjey's long been a favorite for soft-as-butter pajamas and dainty lingerie that perfectly skirts the line between comfortable enough for every day and sexy enough for a special occasion. The company is headquartered in Miami, and its two boutiques (in South Beach and Mid-Beach) are very conveniently located for swimsuit shopping.
Books & Books
927 Lincoln Rd., South Beach
One of the country’s preeminent indie booksellers, Miami native Mitchell Kaplan opened Books & Books at the beginning of the 1980’s, originally in Coral Gables. There are now three locations in Miami—one on Lincoln in Miami Beach, and one at Bal Harbour Shops, in addition to Coral Gables (plus a Grand Cayman and Westhampton Beach location). The staff recommendations will help you land on the perfect beach, plane, etc. read. Literary lovers must go.
