Your Summer Suitcase: Miami

It’s amazing to see this lively international city brimming with energy, nostalgia, and soul—of which our latest Summer collection is perfectly suited. There’s something very enchanting about it all, almost as if anything goes.

Famous for its 1930s Art Deco, latin culture, and endless beaches, Miami makes for a dream travel destination—especially when coming from New York City. Offering an easy escape, not only for its time zone, but also for its convenience—think city to beach in less than three hours.

When asked to speak at Soho Beach House’s Fashion For Breakfast—on the brink of launching our first swim collection—our Founder and Creative Director, Rebecca embarked on a getaway to the idyllic seaside locale, full of incredible food, hidden gems, and picturesque places to stay (and shoot!). Join us on her travels, as she weighs in on her love for the southern city, blending work and play with LoveShack family & friends.

INSPIRATION

There's a sensibility here that luxury and the beach go hand in hand…which is so Love, Shack, and Fancy. I’m endlessly inspired by the sentiment of old world Miami and the 1930’s Art Deco. The colors of the buildings, the pinks, celadon greens, mint, sea foam, and sun bleached palette. Plus, I love the music and the Latin vibe throughout the city. It’s all so energetic.

MUST SEE

Whenever I can, I try to sneak over to Design District and Wynwood for a bit of local inspiration.

ALWAYS ON LOCATION

We’re never not shooting. Quite literally. And, wherever we go, we always have a fun dress-up session (or two, or three…) to get creative. On this past trip, a shoot organically came together at dusk with my dearest friend and photographer, Dean Isdro. As the day turned to night, we splashed in the sea under the ombre sky in our floral dresses, snapping away.

STAY

We absolutely LIVE at The Soho Beach House. It’s magic. Flying in from New York and then waking up in the morning with nothing but the ocean stretched out in front of us is instantly transportive.

Mornings are spent at the Beachbar sipping cappuccinos (with whole milk!), and nibbling on fresh fruit with pancakes, while afternoon meetings are held poolside. As evening approaches, we meander down the boardwalk to the beach for a sunset shoot, followed by drinks on our terrace—served from the charming bar cart which comes round to each room at 7pm. Typically the night concludes at Cecconi’s with family and friends.

FEELING AT HOME IN A HOTEL

Anywhere we travel, I do my best to fill our hotel room with personal items and things we love. On this particular trip, we had hosted a birthday celebration in NYC the night before we left and our home was filled with roses. Rather than see the flowers go to waste, we decided to bring them down to Miami with us! It was so special to have our room filled with hundreds of fresh blooms and racks of delicate vintage dresses mixed with our Summer collection, making us feel immediately at home in Miami

EAT

For special occasions, we love to organize an evening with our best friends at Casa Tua. The food is delicious and we dance the night away to the beat of the bongo drums. Plus, I always love having Joe’s Stone Crab for lunch, out on the beach.

WEAR ALL DAY, EVERYDAY

I lived in the Evelyn dress and Angie dress. The Madeline dress is my absolute favorite--I have one in the original white and one in pink that I hand dyed.

SUITCASE

I can't travel without my new LSF bathing suits—they’re mix and match and the only thing I want to wear. Plus, my straw bag with LOVE embroidered in pink, my gold vintage bracelets (that are available at our Sag Harbor shop), and of course my wedges!

MIAMI MEMORY

One evening after dinner, we went back to our room for dessert with a few of my girlfriends and their daughters. We ended up playing dress-up for hours with our vintage pieces, laughing among the piles of tulle while eating ice cream sundaes. It was heaven.

Naturally Chic

LoveShackFancy-Naturally-Chic-spring-season

Whenever we embark on a new season, we relish in vintage for inspiration and this spring we craved the tactile textures and natural tones of macramé. Fresh and chunky, it's ever perfect for exploring the rugged beaches of St.Barts or chicly pairing with vintage Levis and clogs in the city. So, no matter your adventure, you'll have a penchant for these limited edition, forever pieces that are ripe for your nomadic spirit and just the closet refresh you've been looking for…

LoveShackFancy-Naturally-Chic-spring-season

Macramé is a form of textile-making using knotting - a craft that's widely considered to have originated with Arabic weavers in the 13th-century. It was originally known by the word migramah meaning “fringe” and was thought to have been spread around the world by sailors. Though the craze for macramé faded for a time since the 13th-century, it resurfaced in the 1970s as a major trend and now again - we’re loving it for Spring!

Some memories never leave your bones. 

Like salt in the sea: they become part of you.

Happy Holidays
