The upscale Italian brand specializing in leather goods and ready-to-wear signed a lease for a 4,000-square-foot space between the Gucci and Rick Owens stores on Northeast 41st Street. Their other South Florida locations are at the Bal Harbour Shops and on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.
The announcement is unsurprising as Craig Robins has led the revival of Miami’s Design District into a premier venue for art, fashion, and design. He is the president and CEO of Dacra, the development company he founded that aims to build "commercial and residential communities of substance through creative collaboration.” Dacra and LVMH head the Miami Design District Associates, who own about 70 percent of the real estate in the neighborhood. They are constantly adding new stores, public art, and restaurants like in the recently completed Paradise Plaza. Robins’ project have reimagined and transformed the landscape of Miami. Bottega will be joining the ranks of other high-end retailers such as Hermès, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu.
Bottega will be opening in MDD in the fall of 2018, along with other new tenants like Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga.
