LV Virgil Abloh

The late Virgil Abloh brings the chess-inspired installation for the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer collection. In a play on the house’s iconic Damier check motif, two oversized sculptures wearing looks from the collection sit in front of a Louis Vuitton Mural within an oversized chess game. Abloh’s sculptures are activated throughout Miami, continuing the men’s story and celebrating his legacy.

Fisher Island

Fisher Island is equally exclusive and private. Fisher Island Club is made up of 216 acres and approximately 800 residences representing over 40 countries. Accessible only by ferryboat or private yacht, Fisher Island Club is consistently ranked as one of the wealthiest zip codes in the U.S. 

But… in the beginning, Fisher Island was a wedge of land with coconut palms and mangroves that sat in Biscayne Bay.Miami Beach founder and developer Carl Fisher purchased it in 1905 from Dana Dorsey, South Florida’s first African American millionaire.

Stiltsville

Stiltsville was built on stilts, during the 1920s & 1930s, in Biscayne Bay, a mile from Miami. The houses hide many secrets and stories of gambling and debauchery, to appearances on Miami Vice in the ‘80s, or heros mentioned in Carl Hiaassen novels.

Nowadays, only six houses remained and the territory’s a part of Biscayne National Park. No doubt, Stiltsville has represented the wild and kooky side of Miami.
