Inspired Shopping In Miami's Wynwood Neighborhood: Ethical, Sustainable, Local Fashion
Wynwood and the infamous Wynwood Walls, deserves all the hype it has received.
It was most definitely my favorite place to hangout while visiting Miami this past weekend. While driving by, you can’t miss the full scale street art covering all the walls.
I spent the day walking around and checking out the entire scene. I found the best vegan ice cream I have ever had at Dasher & Crank and had coffee at my favorite Miami coffee spot, Panther Coffee.
But besides the amazing art covering the entire neighborhood, my favorite part of Wynwood was all the inspired shopping.
My good friends Britt and Leo, Florida natives and owners of the pop culture apparel brand Main Street Press, helped show me around and capture the day.
I am sharing my favorite shops in Wynwood below.
A thoughtful and luxurious collection made to stand the test of time, the Antigua Collection is not only the finest swimwear quality we have seen and felt in a long time, but it is also beautifully designed and crafted to be a timeless piece worn at any age.
Silvana Isaacs, the founder and designer, has created a collection that hugs the the body like a second skin. Using the highest quality of materials you can feel the difference when you slip on one of her pieces. I personally purchased three different suits: a leopard print one piece, a gold and leopard print bikini, and a zig zag multi-color print bikini. These are investment pieces for your wardrobe.
Nomad is utilizing a few different methods to establish itself as a fashion house that creates fashion forward designs while maintaining its ethical and sustainable standards.
They have a clothing recycling program that any one can get in on, whether you live in Miami or not. Turning textile waste into new products. They collect thousands of unwanted old garments and recycle them into new fabrics to make new collections.
Flying Cactus MIA
I love supporting small shops and getting to meet the creatives behind the brand. Maria Luisa, designs and hand makes each piece that she sells. You can find her pieces at Wynnwood Shop in Wynnwood, or you can find her and her husband popped up at a number of markets and events around Miami throughout the year.
I purchased the threaded moon earrings (seen pictured below) and the asymmetrical Evil Eye earrings.
