John J. Gibson

Just want to do something normal? We all do. Something like wandering a beautiful boutique, letting something lux catch your eye, taking that something you’re intrigued with to the dressing room, trying it on, falling in love and then finding a place to wear it.

Visitors to the new Alexander McQueen flagship store can shop luxurious summer-ready accessories.

If that sounds like a dream come true, prepare for the opening of Alexander McQueen in the Miami Design District today. Located at 146 NE 41st St, the store will reflect the house’s new design concept, as envisioned by Sarah Burton, creative director, and architect Smiljan Radic. Expect to find the outside world inside. Woods like oak and walnut in dark and light shades bring a warmth to the space’s walls and floors, while glass cylinders reflect light, bringing a weightlessness to the space. Keep an eye out for the cotton-crete around the store, a new invention designed specifically for the space that births papier mâché made from cotton.

The store’s design is a perfect blend of nature and architecture with elements of contemporary and traditional seamlessly fused together as you would expect from the house of McQueen. “It’s exactly what the Design District is missing,” explains Maria Tettamanti, fashion blogger and journalist. “Miami appreciates McQueen’s designs unlike any other city. Our connection with nature and his are the perfect match. Our love of bold is one with its.”

And then there’s the wares. Both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, accessories and mannequins adorned in the runway collections remind shoppers why they came. Bringing nature to the forefront, find antique gold butterflies on rings, cuffs, hoop earrings and necklaces, bringing about a sense of freedom, a symbol we can all relate to, especially now. The butterflies carry over to a box clutch, in light blue or ivory satin, with a handle adorned with elaborate insects and delicate blooms. The butterfly theme continues on in light blue gradient lens pilot sunglasses with a sculpted butterfly charm.

But it’s not all butterflies. Round black crystals encrust a black leather belt. And the womenswear capsule features three dresses with three dimensions of violet on jacquard and sweet pea print, bringing more nature to the world of McQueen. Alexander McQueen’s Miami opening marks the arrival of a capsule collection that will only be sold at limited McQueen locations, with the Miami Design District flagship store being one of them. Lucky us, indeed.
