Fashion boutique or art gallery? These Design District shops look like both

The Christian Louboutin boutique in the Miami Design District.

Some of the Miami Design District’s newest boutiques display fashion like works of art. They’re stores with things to purchase, yes, but these also could pass as art galleries:

Christian Louboutin Flagship Store

Far from just a shoe store, the new Christian Louboutin Flagship is an adventure into plush raspberry-red carpet and ocean-blue teardrop chandeliers and round banquettes as colorful as a carnival fun house.

Tod’s

At the new Tod’s, moveable walls slide along polished concrete floors, converting the 2,400-square-foot showroom into an event space, with a 60-foot projection screen between displays of Italian leather goods.

Boutique Jaeger-LeCoultre

After scoring a pair of Tod’s famed Gommino moccasins, walk them across the street to Boutique Jaeger-LeCoultre. The storied Argentine polo boot maker sells timepieces as heirlooms, hosting parties where the watch-obsessed sip Hennessy as their new purchases are displayed by white-gloved employees.
