What I have gathered from all the times I have been to Miami is that for the longest time, the city has been greatly misunderstood. Seen as the gravity center of luxury lifestyle and luxury environments. I must in fact admit that I myself have often defined the city in this terms. Well, one of my passions being luxury design and luxury living. I therefore sometimes ignore to underline how great the rest is: the art, the interior design… that is why – today – I will take my time to re-think about them, all the things that are great about this magical city. And among them, why Miami Design District is trending so much these days.
Honestly, I don’t think the main idea that many have of the city is completely off. Among other things, it is in fact still one of the world centers for luxury living and luxury design. As well as one of the cities where it may be the easiest to run into luxury brands. The Miami Design District itself in fact has started turning into a high-end fashion hub, attracting brands like Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and many more.

About Miami Design District
In more recent years, on the other hand, the city has seen a growth in excellent museums and has managed to turn the once modest Miami Art Week into the full-out Art Basel Miami Beach. A capital for cultural renaissance, famous architects, chefs and designers. Miami Design District’s developer, Craig Robins started transforming semi-decadent neighborhoods back in the 90s, and is now the main head behind the trending five blocks project.
He turned the area into a destination for high-end furniture and interior design, pushing the city beyond the limits of fashion. And obviously Art. The Miami Design District now hosts in fact an impressive number of Basquiats, Koonses and Harings, and this is only the beginning. He himself has defined it as ‘only half of it’, aspiring to the likes of immense luxury environments such as SOHO and Madison Avenue. But also beyond.
