The lowdown: Lavish Bal Harbour plays host to Stella McCartney’s fifth freestanding store in the United States — and her first in Florida. Best known for her sleek, structural garbs with an eco edge, the Brit It designer celebrated the store’s opening with a Christie’s-hosted soiree showcasing show-stopping precious jewels. Also on display? Shown here are models wearing the new evening collection only previously shown in London.
The ambience: McCartney’s Bal Harbour door renders bespoke, sustainable oak-parquet floors laid in a traditional herringbone pattern displaying the designer’s favorite hues of plums, pale pinks, blush, nude and taupe. The jackpot at the end of this rainbow? The shop leads into a circular area filled with heels, lingerie and a playful children’s section.
Highlights: The store carries the brand’s luxury women’s ready-to-wear, shoes, bags, sunglasses, intimates and kid’s collection. The pièce de résistance? A McCartney-designed exclusive palm tree necklace ($375).
So tropical chic!
