Luxury means paying attention to the finest details of your personal style; from the furnishings you select for your home to your favorite timepiece. Piaget offers nearly 150 years of watchmaking expertise, pioneering and engineering ever-slimmer, increasingly functional, and heartier designs that continue to make waves — even in our modern digital world. Piaget was the company that introduced the first perpetual calendar with a dual time zone. They also brought us a watch with the slimmest tourbillon movement in the world, the Caliber 600P, whose analog function rivals the sleekness of a smart watch in a piece that conveys heirloom elegance. Ranked as one of the top four watch manufacturers, and consistently recognized by the prestigious Fondation du Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, Piaget watches stand out as “the” luxury watch brand by which all others are measured.
With artistry and forward design at every turn in Missoni Baia’s architecture, it’s only natural that you’ll demand the same in your personal choice of accessories and fashions. Hublot offers a luxury line that brings this concept to the watchmaking world with unique innovations and a focus on excellence. One such advancement is what the company calls “magic gold,” which is a ceramic and gold alloy that makes their gold watches incredibly durable and virtually scratchproof. Another is the development of the Unico movement: It is based on a bi-directional automatic winding system that rewinds in a remarkably short time and provides an almost unbelievable 70 hours of timekeeping when fully wound. Just as you’ll never mistake any other building in Miami for Missoni Baia, you’ll never mistake a Hublot for another brand, which makes each of their watches — quite literally — worth more than its weight in gold.
We all love the forward fashions of Prada, so why not take it to the next level and dress our homes in it, as well? The Miami store brings a new perspective to the brand’s retail concept, encapsulating the domestic space with houseware creations by notable Brazilian designers, such as Joaquim Tenreiro, Jorge Zalszupin, Sergio Rodrigues, and others. The midcentury modernism infused with European and Latin American stylings accentuate the materials at play, while maintaining contemporary lines. The result is simple luxury, but also exceptionally warm pieces that make a house a home through the use of both indigenous materials and a bit of folk craft. Relaxed but modern in their aesthetic, delicate in form but sturdy in function, they are, in Prada’s words, “composed of contrasts and contradictions, finding harmony in the unconventional.” Or, put another way, they are the very essence of Prada — and quite possibly the perfect accents to complete your space at Missoni Baia.
For those who love classic design but wear it with a nod toward the decadent, Celine’s recent reinvention of their fashion line may be just for you. When Hedi Slimane took the reins in 2018 as artistic, creative, and image director, he imprinted his personal signature style on the brand, remaking it to be “driven by youth culture, indie rock, and sulking adolescence.” While that may bring to mind visions of ripped denim and worn leather, this change in style has also been made with a more mature refinement in mind. The timelessness of Celine’s fabrics and lines is still there, but the cuts of the pieces veer toward more modern trends, and, ultimately, a smarter, more cultivated version of a younger you. They’ve also extended the brand to men’s fashion, couture, and fragrances, making the new Celine a destination for everyone. For an effortless look that matches your luxury lifestyle, the boutique at Celine has what you need.
