Goods: Flashy, beat-driven clothes for men and women. Designers: Sky, Robins Jeans, Yoga Army, DCVR. Owners: Friends Emily Ellibee, Michael Elborno, Omar Hussain and Joe Wright opened up the shop to cater to the burgeoning nightlife scene along Division Street. Vibe: House music pulses through this shiny space; the stylish staff is street chic and just killing time before the clubs open; classy champagne room meets modern Miami chic—for those who love to primp and pimp. Price Range: Moderate. The Look: Glossy threads that sparkle at Spy Bar and shine on at the high rise after party. Shopper’s Perks: Undoubtedly the VIP-area, set before a flat-screen TV, complete with Patrón and sponsored by Steez tea. The spot is generally reserved for the owners’ entourage, but Ellibee says they’ll open it up on occasion.
