Best Clothing Boutique - 2011
Kiliwatch Miami - CLOSED
A little more than a year ago, siblings Alban and Paloma de Mazieres opened Kiliwatch Miami, a boutique in the heart of Miami's Design District. The store faces stiff competition from more recognizable names located just around the corner, but where Alban and Paloma excel is in the careful curation of items selected for sale. And while clothes are the store's bread and butter, what it sells best is the concept of a certain lifestyle — the kind where you and your fabulous hipster friends are the most fashionable and interesting people you know. At Kiliwatch, you can dress yourself, boyfriend, and apartment, because every fashionista needs to make sure everything in her life could meet the standards of, say, Anna Wintour — you know, in case she ever knocks on your door and offers you that dream job as fashion editor. Items range from affordable to expensive ($20 to $300), so trendsetters at every income level can find something to take home. Labels carried include Plain Jane Homme, Better Off Dead, Altru, Converse by John Varvatos, Exact Science, Rebel Yell, Lovers + Friends, Patterson J. Kincaid, Salinas Swimwear, Cali Dreaming Swimwear, Noir Jewelry, and Chan Luu. Store hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Kiliwatch is closed Sunday, because even God needed to rest on the seventh day.
