Founded in 1947, Christian Dior revolutionized fashion with his visionary designs, establishing the legacy of the house of Dior.
The morning of February 12, 1947, Mr. Dior presented his first Haute Couture collection in a room filled with journalists from around the world. The collection was so revolutionary in its figure and form, that it was named the “New Look”. Inspired by the lines of flower’s folded petals and of the figure “8”, each look represented the return of femininity and luxury after years of global poverty and war.
When Ferdinand Adolph Lange, a Dresden watchmaker, established his watch manufactory in 1845, he laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking. The company was expropriated after World War II, and the name A. Lange & Söhne nearly fell into oblivion. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to relaunch the brand. Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches in gold or platinum per year. They are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and assembled by hand. In a period of little more than 20 years, A. Lange & Söhne developed 51 manufacture calibres and secured a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch brands.
Established in 1856, Burberry has a rich heritage of innovation and craftsmanship. Based in London, the company has a global reputation for functional design with a unique British sensibility. The founder, Thomas Burberry, invented gabardine and designed the trench coat, which retains its iconic status today.
Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen is pleased to announce the opening of its newest boutique in the Miami Design District.

A major player in watchmaking history since 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre is the first Manufacture to have been established in the Vallee de Joux, Switzerland. Guided by time-honored know-how and a constant quest for technical enhancements, the master-watchmakers, engineers and technicians craft each watch in harmony with the same passion.
Sophisticated and trendsetting, Prada’s inspiring concept of uncompromised quality and constant innovation has endured from 1913, when Mario Prada, Miuccia Prada’s grandfather, opened a shop of luxury goods in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan. The search for rare and valuable materials and sophisticated manufacturing techniques is part of Prada’s DNA.
The Prada store in the Miami Design District was designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi. The shop offers the women’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories and footwear collections.
