Balenciaga store opens in Bal Harbour Shops Florida

Another Balenciaga shop is born in the US this month! This time it is at the Bal Harbour Shops in Miami, Florida.  It is definitely a smart move on Balenciaga's behalf since it is definitely an ideal travel destination and also has a major port for cruise ships!

According to the article on,
"Bal Harbour Shops is no stranger to fellow luxury retailers– Celine, Chanel, Hermes, and Oscar de la Renta are a few of neighbors to welcome the new Balenciaga shop.

The new 1,000 sq foot Balenciaga shop is among a handful of Balenciaga shops in the United States and around the globe to house a freestanding location, which showcases Women’s Ready-To-Wear, leather goods, jewelry, shoes, fragrances and their futuristic sunglasses. The brands widely known futuristic theme will carry over from the runways to the interior design of the store.

WWD reports that, the French owned fashion house is in collaboration with contemporary French artist Dominique Gonzales-Foerster and the “Accessories are housed in gold- and silver-leaf lined cubbyholes, or propped on white plinths resembling icebergs. Floors are paved with black and white marble — or olive green carpeting.” Sounds like perfection, right?
The fashion footprint of the Balenciaga Fashion House is among the most prestigious–Can’t wait to check out Balenciaga Bal Harbour."
