Billionaire Italian Couture, the first international haute couture line exclusively for men, celebrated its first East Coast flagship, effectively starting Miami Art Basel 2013 with a bang! On Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 at 4000 NE 2nd Avenue, VIPs including Mr. Luciano Benetton, Fabian and Martina Basabe, Derek Blasberg, Craig Robins, Jackie Soffer, Charles Rockefeller, Adriana de Moura and Renato Balestra, gathered at the entrance for the glamorous in-store party. Amongst the high-profiled guests was Mr. Billionaire himself. Other notable appearances included DJ So Super Sam at a live set, the founder, Mr. Flavio Briatore, and the host, Mr. Stefano Percassi.
“Coming to Miami was a natural move for the Billionaire brand,” said Briatore. “The International community of Miami, and the many who visit it, have the same affection for luxury that Billionaire Italian Couture was founded on. Both Miami and Billionaire Italian Couture are bold, stylish, and fast-paced. It is a seamless fit”, no pun intended.
Founded in 2005, Billionaire Couture combines impeccably cut wardrobe staples with boundless excess and a concession to personal style. Classic with character and chic down to the last detail, Billion Couture expresses the temperament of those who wear it. Each piece in this luxurious brand employs artisanal Italian know-how coupled along with the use of versatile fabrics and exotic skins. To date, there are 27 locations around the world, including Rome, London, Dubai, and the newest location, Miami.
Housed in an iconic, newly renovated post office in the Design District of Miami, the store spans 200 meters squared. This landmark boutique stands out in the Miami’s new shopping hotspot alongside the crème de la crème of other world renowned fashion labels.
