Shopping Destination: Billionaire Miami
The Boutique That Brings International Travelers A Most Artful Shopping Experience
Nestled in the heart of the new Miami design district lies a marvelous stand-alone boutique on 40th and 2nd Avenues: Billionaire Italian Couture.
It’s a palace, really. With more than 5500 square-feet of rays of white and gold, the boutique is stunningly light and airy, like walking into a gold-trimmed cloud. The space was originally a 1920s post office and has been unreservedly transformed into Billionaire’s breathtaking flagship store.
As Billionaire’s newest location it boasts the brand’s largest and most diverse exotics accessories collection including iguana, python, cobra, ostrich, and its mainstay textiles alligator and crocodile. It also subtly flaunts its exclusive license for Damiani of Italy, a custom jewelry and high-level luxury watch company out of Italia (of course). Damiani produces Billionaire’s solid gold-, platinum- and diamond-encrusted belt buckles…coveted pieces of art in their own right that can be passed down for generations (…so much more than an object to hold up your pants!). Simply put, this shopping destination is an art gallery of fashion.
For those unfamiliar with the brand, a little history. Billionaire Italian Couture is the first international men’s haute couture line, and in an industry where mass production has overtaken the art and craft of generational couturiers, the company has remained true to Italian artisans. Most of Billionaire’s creations are made by hand, in limited numbers, and in small design factories (which the company prefers to call “laboratories”). In addition to its couture inventory, the boutique has managed to successfully weave ready-to-wear items into its repertoire like stitched shirts featuring pressed flat seams; made-to-measure, linen-finished suits with pure gold buttons and hand-stitched buttonholes; and alternatively shaped pure wool ties. Each item exhibits uniqueness in every detail.
A haven for international travelers accustomed to runway fashion from around the world, a well-heeled gentleman (or one who’s religiously savvy) will appreciate Billionaire’s extreme brand of sartorial men’s fashion that intentionally pushes the envelope while remaining refined. Miami couldn’t have been given a better gift as Billionaire will draw the crème de la crème of elegance and style, from the East coast and beyond. The company is relentless in its search for quality, eccentricity and sophistication of fabrics, and supports the culture and lifestyle of masculine excellence. So as you pack your bags to globe trot to Billionaire’s red-carpeted steps that lead to a world of dynamic and innovative style, remember these adoring words from Flavio Briatore, the company’s founder:
“Work is the most romantic thing there is.”
To the professionals at Billionaire, Miami thanks you for loving the work that you do…and for helping the world’s fashion elite to dress the part of that love.
