Bienvenidos a Miami Design District, Kith. The cool kids ready-to-wear brand opened its second Miami door today in the Design District along with a Sadelle’s restaurant (yum!) and a standalone Kith Treats store (double yum). The new store boasts two stories and is brimming with Kith’s in-house and multi-brand clothing, accessories and footwear offerings for men, women and kids.
The Kith Miami Design District concept mirrors that of Kith’s signature retail designs, transposed against details that embody modern elements the Miami neighborhood is known for. With this retail expansion Kith continues to offer its customers a unique shopping experience reflective of the location’s environment.
The brand’s quintessential neutral color palette is juxtaposed alongside vibrant shades of green, incorporated through the interior landscape design as a small nod to Miami’s natural beauty. Santa Margherita Rosa Perlino, Perlato Royal and Carrara marble floors and structures are woven alongside wavy fluted plaster, birch wood, brass and painted gypsum throughout both floors. The result is a sophisticated atmosphere that is light and expansive, as designed by Kith’s Founder and Creative Director Ronnie Fieg.
Upon entering, a circular structure centers the space separating the menswear from the womenswear. A deep hallway of changing rooms with birch paneled walls and ceilings is located at the rear of the showroom. Floor to ceiling windows flood the staircase with natural light, providing strong visual contrast against the white floating steps that connect the main level to the second floor. Once upstairs, customers are met with ribbed fabric walls across the expansive circular shoe room, providing a moment of warmth against the otherwise minimal design.
Further into the second floor is Sadelle’s at Kith bringing Major Food Group’s renowned New York restaurant to the Design District. White washed ash walls with picture frame molding are met by a checkerboard floor, fluted ming green counter and fluted Carrara marble header, creating a space that is both polished and inviting. Kith for Sadelle’s Miami will offer the restaurant’s signature menu items including its infamous brunch.
“Major Food Group and Kith’s partnership developed naturally out of mutual respect and our shared New York DNA. Our first collaboration launched in Paris, and we couldn’t be more proud to bring our beloved Sadelle’s to our new home in the Miami Design District,” Jeff Zalaznick, Major Food Group Co-Founder says.
In addition, Kith introduces the brand’s first permanent standalone Kith Treats outpost, located directly across the street from Kith’s retail location, at 84 NE 41st Street. A circular bar of Rosa Portugalo marble centralizes the 1,000 square foot space against Carrara marble barstools and stainless-steel accents, highlighted by Kith Treats’ discernible parlor-style cereal canister wall. The location will serve new exclusive Signature Specials created by friends and family of Kith, and for guests seated at the counter, an extended menu of original Belgian waffle offerings with custom Kith branding. The space will also stock the brand’s global inline apparel capsules.
