On December 1, it will open its Miami men’s store doors (along with an exclusive and highly anticipated menswear runway show prior to the opening). Merging the vibrant spirit of Miami with Louis Vuitton’s heritage of craftsmanship and innovation, the new destination will illuminate its geometric façade, inspired by a classic Louis Objets Nomades piece, the Diamond Screen by Marcel Wanders Studio. 

In addition, the brand will transform its Design District women’s store into an immersive Objets Nomades showcase, including the new pieces for 2021. The façade will be temporarily wrapped in a jubilant burst of woven colors, patterned after a new Objet Nomades by the Campana Brothers, and the inside will be curated by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola to include some of her signature pieces, like the Hanging Chair.

Dior will debut its Medallion Chair Exhibition in the U.S. during Design Miami and Art Basel at SuperBlue, a new arts center dedicated to supporting artists in realizing their vision and engaging audiences with experiential art. The iconic Medallion Chair has become a pillar of the House of Dior, and — similar to Dior’s Lady Art Project — has been reinterpreted by select international artists.

In the spirit of Art Basel, Loewe will reopen its Design District store with a brand-new concept, inspired by the works of artist Sol LeWitt. The new concept will unveil a vibrant mural designed by LeWitt, commissioned by Paula Cooper Gallery. In contrast to the colorful interior, the façade will be covered in glossy black ceramics handmade in Spain.


To celebrate the 100th birthday of the house’s iconic fragrance, Chanel No. 5., Chanel will be hosting several immersive experiences in the Miami Design District.
