MIAMI – Gildo Zegna has a mad crush on Miami. The Ermenegildo Zegna Group chief executive was in town to launch an Agnona women’s wear pop-up shop in the Miami Design District (MDD) at 150 NE 40th Street, a teaser for the brand’s first U.S. store that opens nearby in the spring. As Champagne flowed for Art Basel parties and openings throughout the neighborhood on Thursday, he gushed about the city’s good attributes, from art to climate.
“Miami’s moving. Everywhere you go in the world, people are talking about it,” said Zegna, who plans to open a second Ermenegildo Zegna store in the Miami Design District in addition to Bal Harbour. “Its ideal location at the crossroads for North and South America and Europe could surpass Los Angeles, which is too far.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
