Hermès opens temp shop in Design District

The lowdown: The Design District recently scored a fashion tour de force in the shape of an Hermès boutique. The store opened last month and is now the only Hermès retail location in Miami following the closing of the Bal Harbour store. This temporary location is a prelude of what’s to come — a flagship store to open in the Design District next year.

The ‘hood: The temp store calls Celine, Christian Louboutin, Cartier, Prada and Louis Vuitton its neighbors.

The highlights: C’est chic! The Parisian maison is the master of all things decadent. Most famous for Birkin and Kelly handbags, the 5,000-square-foot boutique boasts an expanded assortment of women’s, men’s and home goods. This mélange includes ready-to-wear, fine jewelry, swimwear, handbags, shoes, fashion accessories, fine leather goods, silk scarves and ties, equestrian products, home furnishings, furniture, porcelain, silver and crystal.

‘Downton Abbey’: A more stylish Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) is emerging in Season 4.

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
