Befitting its Miami home, the 5000 square ft sleek space is white-washed and weathered. The original fixtures and environments, designed by Studio Dror, have been crafted to showcase an array of sexy edgy fashion for both men and women – each piece hand selected for the consummate Miami traveler. Reminiscent of Atrium NYC is a juried selection too of the foremost in denim, t-shirts and plush casual and beach wear. To compliment the fashion, finely edited lifestyle elements are infused throughout, a nod of appreciation for the passions and pursuits of their clientele. Casual, sensual and with a pulse all its own, Atrium Miami boasts the likes of Martin Margiela, Missoni, Collette Dinnigan, Costume National and D Squared.
