Fashionistas listen up: Alice + Olivia has arrived on our shores in high style. The new 2,900-sq.-ft. flagship store in the Miami Design District is the brand’s first two-level boutique and makes the most of the generous space. Stacy Bendet collaborated with renowned interior designer Robert Couturier, drawing inspiration from the elegant works of John Michael Franks in the 1930s. The result is a modern aesthetic that highlights the brand’s colorful, fun and whimsical collection with a colonnade of 30-ft. white plaster drapes that are the architectural focal point of the shop, creating a visual connection between the floors, leading the customer’s view from the ground up through the thassos marble staircase. “I’m thrilled to continue to expand our A+O fashion community with our newest flagship store in Miami, and wanted the store to showcase our clothing and to play into the artistic nature of the Miami Design District,” says Bendet. The impressive new outpost will house the brand’s complete collection, including ready-to-wear, gowns, shoes, accessories and the newly launched denim line, AO.LA by Alice + Olivia; AliceAndOlivia.com.
