Louis Vuitton opens a special pop-up store at Miami Design District dedicated to the FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection. The pop-up store will be open to the public from June 14th through July 15th and designed with the collection’s inspiration in mind.
The pop-up store features unique versions of Keepall and Apollo bags and a selection of small leather goods inspired by the legendary Official Match Ball of the 1970 FIFA World CupTM. Made with the House’s iconic Epi leather first introduced in the 1920s, the styles will be proposed in up to three colors combinations.
The hexagon design is created using a three-stage embossing procedure that is both innovative and based upon the House’s historic savoir-faire, allowing each colored hexagon to have a richly textured feel, reminiscent of classic footballs. For a more exclusive version, a “Made-To-Order” Keepall is proposed in a rich palette of 8 pentagon colors. Each of them can be associated with one of the 5 colors of trimmings to create a Keepall in the colors of almost any national flag. Completing this sophisticated offer, an Epi leather luggage tag could be embossed with one of 35 national flags, including the nations taking part in the competition.

The new pop up store will present a unique, limited-edition FIFA World CupTM Official Match Ball Collection Trunk that is set to become an instant collector’s item. Based on the House’s traditional wardrobe trunks, it opens to reveal a stunning collection of 14 footballs: 13 reeditions of the Official Match Balls used at FIFA World CupTM tournaments since 1970, all fabricated especially for this project by Adidas, and one Louis Vuitton designed football.

Cost: $100 Donation

Miami’s premier Design and Architecture Senior High marks the 10th anniversary of its annual Taste of Design in a new location with the return of an all-star line-up of local chefs.

This year’s festivities will be held in Paradise Plaza, the Design District’s new cutting edge take on art, food and fashion on Friday, January 26, 2018 from 7PM to 10PM. An extension of the popular pedestrian Paseo Ponti, the sculpture-filled plaza includes architecture by Daly Genik, Freehand Buck and MOS. In keeping with past events, the 2018 Taste menu will feature some of Miami’s hottest chefs, including James Beard finalist Brad Kilgore. A special item will also be offered during the annual silent auction: a rare, signed guitar by rock legend Tom Petty.

To celebrate ten years, the event will highlight the achievements of DASH’s remarkable alums as well as future grads.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top high schools in Florida and the U.S. for the last decade, DASH offers a design-driven curriculum taught by industry professionals. Its location in the heart of the Design District provides students with a unique opportunity to see design in action. The annual Taste of Design serves as an important fundraiser to support critical programs, including Portfolio Day. Donations have also helped send dozens of students to important college prep programs around the country, including Parsons and the School for Visual Arts in New York.

Moving to Paradise Plaza puts this year’s Taste at the center of the district’s new cultural hub, providing an opportunity for an art-filled evening. Along the paseo connected to the plaza are sculptures and installations by John Baldessari, The Buckminster Fuller Institute, Konstantin Grcic, Zaha Hadid and Marc Newson. The Institute for Contemporary Art and de la Cruz art collection sit just around the corner.

The 2018 Taste menu features food from two of Kilgore’s new restaurants, Ember and Kaido. Kilgore has twice been nominated as James Beard Rising Star Chef and earned a best new

restaurant nod. Acclaimed chef Dewey LoSasso, who helped turn Miami into a food destination, will also provide dishes. LoSasso, who served as Donatella Versace’s personal chef, has helmed the kitchens at some of Miami’s leading restaurants including The Forge Restaurant/Wine Bar, Schnebly Winery and Miami Brewing Company, LaTour, and The Private Foundlings Club.

Along with the signed guitar, this year’s silent auction will include original artwork, jewelry, dining, spa treatments, home and garden items, skin care goodies, and tickets to major entertainment events.

Tickets are available for a donation of $100. VIP Packages are available for $1000 for a table for ten. For more information or to make a donation, please go to www.dashptsa.com or email: dashptsa@gmail.com.
