Aventura Mall has further expanded its selection of international and renowned brands with the additions of Parisian diamond and jewelry maison Messika, Brazilian lifestyle retailer Farm Rio, Levi’s and Ladurée, a French pâtisserie specializing in macarons.
Messika is a modern diamond jewelry and high jewelry maison celebrating femininity. Valerie Messika, the brand’s founder, is constantly coming up with new ways to make women feel freer and more beautiful. Lightness is at the heart of her creations: every piece must be comfortable and suitable for day to evening wear. A simple string of diamonds offers lightness and finesse, decorating skin with the sensuality of a tattoo. The brand’s collections feature an exceptional selection of minimalist, timeless and contemporary designs encompassing rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings, as well as fine jewelry in white, pink and yellow golds. MESSIKA will open its first American boutique store this summer on the lower level of the New Wing in Aventura Mall next to David Yurman.
Farm Rio is a Brazilian clothing and lifestyle brand featuring pieces in vibrant colors and nature-inspired prints. The new 1,400 square-foot boutique – the brand’s second permanent U.S. store – was designed by renowned Brazilian artist, Marcelo Rosenbaum.
Levi’s, one of the world’s largest apparel companies and a global leader in jeans, was created to offer functional pieces people not only work in, but live in. Founded by Levi Strauss in 1873, Levi’s began as an invention for the American worker and ultimately became the uniform of progress.
Ladurée Aventura Mall
Ladurée, a famed French luxury bakery and sweets maker, will further expand Aventura Mall’s growing selection of handcrafted treats. Known as the brand that created the Macaron, Ladurée offers a variety of gourmet flavors via a thoughtfully crafted list of ingredients, as well as pastries, chocolates, teas and accessories.
The story of the Ladurée macaron starts in the middle of the 19th century with Pierre Desfontaines, who first thought of taking two macaron shells and joining them with a delicious ganache filling. The recipe has not changed since. Ladurée is a veritable song to sweets and pastry innovation. Every moment of creation is an intense experience, that is why, twice a year, like fashion designers, the House imagines news desserts such as the Rose Religieuse, the Rose- Raspberry Saint Honoré, the Liquorice Millefeuille and the Blackcurrant-Violet Macaron.
