Several years ago, fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger sold his fashion label. And today, he is enjoying the South Florida sun and his eye-popping beachfront home just north of Miami.

“We’re here for the weather, the Latin flavor, the art, and the palm trees. Most of all we’re here for the fun,” Hilfiger told Architectural Digest.

When Tommy and his wife, Dee, began house hunting in Miami, they knew space would be crucial – they needed room for their extensive art collection, for starters.  They ultimately settled on a modern 14,000-square-foot structure built in 2007.

“Our Connecticut home feels very country, with lots of taxidermy, and our place in Mustique has a more British Colonial vibe. We wanted to be able to showcase the colorful large-scale artworks that didn’t make sense elsewhere, conceptually or size-wise,” Dee explained.

But art wasn’t the only reason they bought in Miami. Hilfiger recently purchased the Raleigh hotel in Miami Beach, and he plans to refurbish the Art Deco gem starting in 2015, according to Architectural Digest. [AD] Christopher Cameron
