Nestled away in the corner of a courtyard at one of Miami’s most secret gems, The Standard Hotel, lies a boutique. Formally known as ‘The Shop,’ it is one of the only truly luxurious locations for resort wear, swim and superb accessories. With brands like Eres (it is the only shop in Miami that carries this perfect French label, owned by Chanel) and Linda Farrow, Cutler & Gross, Lemlem, Shelter Serra and the FFS, if you need that perfect attire/accessories for the pool, beach or your myriad summer journeys locally, or to Europe and beyond, this is your secret to success.
Haute Living spoke with the Retail Manager of ‘the Shop,’ Mr. Keith Harris about experience as the manager of one of Miami’s Hautest, most petite, yet elite spots in the 305.
How long have you been with The Standard?
Since the summer of 2012
A majority of your business is local or tourist based?
Most of my business is generated from my local clientele. We are a hotel, but we have a major local group that come through just because they know what we have. Our selection, it is exclusive, to the point where we only order one of each size. There are only three sizes of each model we recieve: 36,38 an 42.
Do you help with the buying and selection at ‘the Shop?’
The direction is very curated here. We work had in hand with the New York team, and for the moment we are moving toward museum quality items, like Daniel Arsham works.
Also, our magazine selection is quite interesting too. We have quarterly issues you will not find anywhere CR, Another, The Gentlewoman and Another Man.
