The luxury wing of Sawgrass Mills, The Colonnade Outlets, is getting swankier by the second. Teeming with more than 60 designer retailers (think Tory Burch, Gucci and Prada for next to nada), The Colonnade section just announced the opening of several South Florida “firsts” and soon-to-open retailers. So without further ado, allow us to parlay 5 additional reasons to visit Sawgrass Mills:
1) Alexis Bittar
Jewelry designer Alexis Bittar boasts mad love for Lucite. Known for his signature Lucite jewelry pieces, the award-winning accessories designer is a fave from magazines to the White House, as First Lady Michelle Obama regularly wears pieces from his collection. The Alexis Bittar boutique is now open and a first in Florida.
2) Saint Laurent
Ooh la la! Founded in 1961 in Paris, Saint Laurent is one of the world’s most prominent fashion houses. Known for its classic-yet-edgy womens and mens ready-to-wear, the label’s handbags are highly coveted by editors and celebs alike. Saint Laurent is now open and the boutique marks the brand’s first foray in Florida outlet shopping.
3) Ted Baker
The King of Quirk, Ted Baker London, is also newly opened and a first-in-Florida outlet shop. With roots as shirt specialist in Glasgow, UK, Ted Baker has quickly established his zany brand globally with an unswerving attention to quality and detail. The line includes men’s and women’s apparel, handbags and accessories.
4) Michael Kors Men’s
Let’s hear it for the boys! Joining the lineup later this year, Michael Kor’s Men’s will be brimming with ready-to-wear apparel, accessories, jewelry, footwear and fragrance for dapper dudes.
5) Zwilling JA Henckles
Cut. It. Out. Opening later this year, the Zwilling JA Henckles brand is synonymous with innovation and exceptional quality materials, design and function; offering award-winning knives and cookware.
