Aventura Mall to Open Givenchy, Gucci Boutiques

Aventura Mall, Miami’s premier fashion destination, has announced Givenchy and Gucci will join its growing, already substantial lineup of luxury retailers.

Aventura Mall’s collection of upscale boutiques includes Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Fendi, Burberry, Bally, Emilio Pucci, St. John, Omega, Brooks Brothers, and more.

Givenchy, founded in 1952 by Hubert de Givenchy, is an international luxury house known for its Haute Couture, ready-to-wear and accessories collections for men and women. Twisting the codes of the House, which are cool chic, sobriety, femininity and aristocratic elegance, creative director Riccardo Tisci adds dark romanticism and sensuality. True to the House’s creative heritage and spirit, Tisci brings the name of Givenchy into today’s world while projecting it into the future.

Influential, innovative and progressive, Gucci is reinventing a wholly modern approach to fashion. Under the new vision of creative director Alessandro Michele, the House has redefined luxury for the 21st century, further reinforcing its position as one of the world’s most desirable fashion houses. Eclectic, contemporary, romantic—Gucci products represent the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship and are unsurpassed for their quality and attention to detail.

“The additions of Givenchy and Gucci will enhance the shopping experience for our local and international visitors and further establish Aventura Mall as one of the country’s top fashion destinations,” said Jackie Soffer, Co-Chairman and CEO of Turnberry Associates, owner and manager of Aventura Mall.

Givenchy is scheduled to open in summer 2016 and Gucci in fall 2016. Both boutiques will be located in Nordstrom Court.

The brands will join two recent fashion additions, St. John and 120% Lino, which opened recently on the upper level near Nordstrom.

St. John was founded in 1962 on the fascinating coming together of craft and couture based on a simple yet elegant knit dress. It was then co-founder Marie Gray decided to outfit women of success, creating clothes that radiated the effortless refined style and now appeal to women across the globe. The collection includes impeccably tailored pieces that are luxe, relaxed and modern down to the last detail.

Aventura Mall’s St. John boutique includes women’s ready-to-wear and accessories.

120% Lino is Italy’s foremost fashion brand specializing in linen for men, women and children. High quality materials, innovation, selectivity, and precious fibers are the basis of the brand. The raw linen, a very “cool,” resistant fiber, is selected from the best resources worldwide and printed, embroidered or mixed with silk and cashmere, always in style and in tune with the dominant fashion trends.

One of America’s most visited shopping centers according to Travel + Leisure magazine, Aventura Mall features more than 300 of the world’s most iconic, recognized retailers. The shopping center is anchored by six department stores, including Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Macy’s, and features nearly a dozen restaurants, an artist-designed interactive playground and a 24-screen AMC Movie Theatre with IMAX. Visitors enjoy a taste of South Florida’s thriving arts scene with Turnberry for the Arts, featuring contemporary installations by renowned international and local artists.

Located at 19501 Biscayne Boulevard, the mall is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. For more information please call (305) 935-1110 or visit us online at www.aventuramall.com.
