A number of high-profile luxury retailers will soon open up shop in the Design District, including Bulgari, Fendi, Dior, Pucci and Marc by Marc Jacobs, the Miami Herald reported. Also joining them will be Cartier, following deals by developer Craig Robins with Richemont and Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy. “This demonstrates the viability and potential of the Miami Design District,” Robins said. “Our neighborhood has the potential to help redefine how fashion is merchandised in this country.” Six stores, including Louis Vuitton and Hermes, will be opening up temporary stores in the area by the end of this year. In the next two years, Robins hopes to have as much as 50 brands operating in the neighborhood. [Miami Herald]
