The lowdown: No one puts on the glitz like the Ritz-Carlton, so it’s no surprise the South Beach hotel’s boutique, The Signature Shop, is teeming with chic men’s and women’s clothing and accessories.
“The Signature Shop is unique in that it provides all the bells and whistles of a designer boutique or luxury department store with the latest in designer apparel for both men and women,” Retail Manager at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach Marcell Samuels says.
The ‘hood: Tucked away on the lobby level of The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, the boutique is located in the heart of the Art Deco District on Lincoln Road.
The ambience: Replete with a honey-colored wood backdrop, track lighting positioned to highlight the feature apparel and free-standing fixtures for guests to easily peruse items from the new collections, the ambiance here is intimate and inviting.
“The ladies and gentlemen working in the boutique provide personalized service based on each guests’ needs — representative of the Ritz-Carlton philosophy,” Samuels says.
Highlights: Scoop up brands such as Splendid, Ella Moss, Vix, Hale Bob, Gucci, Dior, Joie, DVF, Bugatchi, Robert Graham, Lacoste and more. The boutique also boasts one-of-a-kind specialty items including a line of dishware by the late famed architect Morris Lapidus who also designed the hotel.
The retail manager says: “The fashion and style of South Beach is as unique as the destination itself. From beautifully adorned resortwear to glamorous eveningwear — you truly see it all. It’s my passion to outfit the Signature Shop with the latest in apparel and accessories that represent our diverse location and inspire guests to wear something that expresses their personal taste in a bolder, more distinct way,” Samuels adds.
