Drawing on styles from around the world, Miami’s fashion scene is full of inspiring and individualistic boutiques. Here are a few of our favorite spots to find gems around town.
With two locations on Lincoln Road, Alchemist is one of South Beach’s highest praised clothing boutiques. One of the shops is unexpectedly nestled inside the 5th floor of the Lincoln Road Parking Garage, with sweeping views of Miami Beach and funky mirrors animating the ceiling. As fun as its design is, Alchemist is better known for offering products for both men and women from over sixty designers and artists. Chic jewelry, colorful blouses, luxury men’s footwear—this place has everything.
Cottage Miami offers something a bit different from the flashy men’s fashion that people are used to in Miami. As the name implies, this boutique focuses on more of a Northeastern feel with styles that are preppy and seemingly made for a man walking to a sunset cocktail party on the beach. Shorts cut above the knee and graphic sneakers help bring a little hipster edge to the shop’s otherwise beachy aesthetic.
Built inside of one of South Beach’s classic art deco hotels on Collins Avenue, The Webster is more than a boutique; it’s a shopping experience. Its three stories have something for everyone; be it men’s or women’s clothing, Rolex watches, designer purses, shades, and fine jewelry. Visitors are welcome to stroll through the store at their own pace and enjoy the restaurant and rooftop terrace to celebrate their buys.
BASE is where the modern day most-interesting-man-in-the-world goes shopping. This male-lifestyle brand appeals to savvy crowds with hats, sneakers, jackets, T-shirts. It’s also a proprietor of jewelry and body products like small-batch cologne produced in-house. Already a comprehensive shop, BASE pushes it further with liquor flasks, headphones, robot statues, and beautiful indoor plant art pieces. There is even a large library of CDs, records, and a collection of rare magazines.
