And in that’s SO MIAMI news: Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour’s shoe department just received a MAJOR facelift. The end result? No botched job here — this place is b-a-n-a-n-a-s.
I was recently invited in to preview the freshly minted 10022-SHOES space which boasts 7,000 square feet of designer shoes making it the largest shoe department in the Sunshine State. Hello, Shoe Shangri-la.
Swathed in neutral tones with pops of pink, purple and blue, the all-new shoe department exudes a modern, luxe and sexy aesthetic. Shoe buffs can scoop up brands such as Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga, Manolo Blahnik, Fendi, Amina Muaddi, Prada, Saint Laurent and more.
For handbag aficionados, the door’s new shops include Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Burberry and (coming soon) Fendi.
The first phase of the store’s redesign was completed last year with the unveiling of a new third floor housing men’s designer and advanced contemporary ready-to-wear, men’s footwear, women’s lingerie and swim, as well as an expanded kid’s assortment. Earlier this year, Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour unveiled a new 9,500-square-foot beauty department on the ground floor, featuring 20 new beauty and fragrance brands as well as an exciting lineup of treatments and service offerings.
To peep the Pump Promised Land, one need only visit Saks Bal Harbour Shops.
