This new upscale boutique is an asset to the Mile. Opened in 2006, it has made a name for itself among the young and sophisticated crowd.

Accessories are also plentiful, ranging from fashion jewelry to handbags to scarves. Nothing has been left to chance and the sales personnel are knowledgeable and willing to help. Essence is relaxed shopping at its best. - Mercedes de Marchena
Emporium is an old fashioned and classic boutique where you can find a wide range of offerings. There are, of course, vintage items and a designers' corner; but it also has some very interesting products lined up. A line of coffees and teas designed exclusively for the store and appropriately called 'Zami', items like typewriter keys turned into rings, dog collars made in Kenya from discarded materials, rose petal preserves from Italy, soft Indian pashminas, incense wands for aroma therapy and the like make this a truly unique shopping option. It's like a Victorian closet, open for your delight, with a dressing room made of folding Asian screens and a bathroom with an antique birdcage. This is a whimsical place, full of understated elegance and sophistication. - Mercedes de Marchena

Royalty, business tycoons and movie stars all come here to splurge on jewelry and timepieces. The late Harry Winston, a native New Yorker, is still known as "The King of Diamonds", and the business empire he founded has an international reputation. High profile celebrities are known to "borrow" designs when they attend the Oscars each year, and even the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Louvre have displayed Winston's exclusively crafted works. The stores, or "salons" as they are called, maintain a high profile, and this one in Bal Harbour is no exception. You can expect impeccable service, and to be set back by several thousand dollars if you decide to secure one of the exquisite pieces on offer.
This elegant store, one of the Bal Harbour Shops, stocks apparel for both men and women, accessories, and home furnishings. If you are a fashionista, you know what to expect of the Oscar de la Renta label-ultra-trendy designs at exorbitant prices. Come here with a loaded wallet and someone to help carry your packages-it is easy to get swayed by such great style.
