A Curated Shopping Experience at Faena Bazaar

Miami, Retail

Faena Bazaar’s new collaboration with Curio, a fashion agency helmed by industry veterans Jeff Lasota and Danielle Licata, brings a curated design collection, and exclusive pop ups to our neighborhood.

When it comes to discovering new brands and having a memorable moment, nothing beats a  great in-store experience, and that’s what Faena Bazaar aims to offer. Multiple local specialty stores has been brought together to create a distinct shops in shops experience, together with a kaleidoscope of brands from across the globe. The concept behind being to create a strong sense of community while staying connected to the world. 

Featured Designer: René Caovilla

Italian shoe brand René Caovilla has been fusing craftsmanship and couture with beauty and proportion for over three generations. Designer Eduardo Caovilla continues his family’s legacy with timeless collections using the same Venetian artistry.

His designs are often found gracing the red carpet on the stars like Rihanna, Gal Gadot and Bella Hadid. While Caovilla is inspired by the beautiful, determined and hardworking women who don his luxury footwear, he never designs a shoe with a particular muse in mind. “I strive to create versatile styles that can adapt to every woman who wants to feel unique.”

Like his father and grandfather before him, Caovilla employs expert artisans to hand stitch and embellish each pair of shoes, which takes an average of 48 hours to fashion from scratch. Rows of sandals, sneakers and espadrilles sparkle like bejeweled sculptures on the shelves of the famous atelier. Caovilla looked to the beauty of nature to create the 2020 spring/summer collection, which can be shopped at the Faena Bazaar. “We used florals,  colors and braids to create a perfect mix of glamour and refinement for a modern woman with an eye for detail,” he said.

The new Trisabrita is a must-have. The feminine evening sandal comes in classic black and rose red with braided ankle straps and sinuous lines perfectly suited for cocktails with friends or a romantic dinner. For something more whimsical there’s the Cinderella: a brand-new sling-back style adorned with lamé lace and geometric-cut crystals. The collection also features a new kitten heel thong and René Caovilla’s beloved Cleo sandal that appears season after season “without ever losing its elegance or sensuality.” In the delicate Diana flat, practicality meets sophistication, making it an everyday staple and a best seller. “I’ve always aimed to create all-time iconic styles,” he explains. “This is one of our main goals as a historic maison.”
