Miansai's come a long way since changing the men's jewelry game with its wearable twist on fishing gear. Now expanded into a full-fledged accessories line, the Miami-based brand is going bicoastal with its second US shop on Abbot Kinney.
Officially opening next Friday, the nautical-inspired label has settled into a 1,000-square-foot space (formerly fine jeweler LFrank's shop) between Rag & Bone and Salt. Accoutrements aficionados will find designer Michael Saiger's signature fishhook and rope bracelets, minimalist cuffs in 14k gold and silver, wristwatches, luxe leather wallets and travel bags, and more women's and men's goods with a modern maritime-inspired touch.
As far as the interiors, design-driven features include custom walnut wood furniture (detail-obsessed shoppers will love that the grain runs consistently in one direction), sleek marble and iron accents, industrial-modern lighting, and maritime-inspired art. Similar to its New York outpost, the boutique will house a tea and kombucha bar that'll serve a special menu of fresh juice-infused 'buch, plus a custom monogramming bar.
A greenery-filled back patio will offer a cool mid-spree hangout, complete with comfy seating and free wifi; although it was still under construction when we previewed the space yesterday, you can score a sneak peek inside the rest of the store ahead of next week's public debut in the gallery above.
