Givenchy made its debut at Aventura Mall, and it won't be the last luxury brand to open at the mega mall this year.
First announced for the mall in February, the French luxury retailer of clothing, perfumes and cosmetics opened in a nearly 2,000-square-foot space. The store features the brand's fall/winter 2016 men and women's ready-to-wear collection.
Gucci, another luxury brand, is expected to open later this year at the mall.
Recently, Aventura Mall announced the arrivals of Sugarfina, a grown-up candy boutique with confections not widely available; Sam Edelman, a lifestyle designer and La Colombe Coffee Roasters' first Florida store.
Aventura Mall is in the midst of an expansion that is expected to add more space for its existing stores and add new ones. The redevelopment is coming at a turning point in South Florida's retail landscape. The top shopping center will soon compete with major mixed-use developments coming online soon that feature big retail components, such as Brickell City Centre and Miami Worldcenter in Miami and Metropica in Sunrise.
Avenutra Mall is at 19501 Biscayne Blvd. in Aventura. It is anchored by Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Macy's and has more than 300 stores.
