MIAMI HEAT: Miu Miu, which has operated a boutique at Bal Harbour Shops since 2009, is adding to the sizzle in the Miami Design District with a shop that opened Thursday. Architect Roberto Baciocchi designed the bi-level, 5,435-square-foot store at 190 NE 39th Street. A perforated metal curtain backs its glass facade adorned with light boxes and geometric bands in black marble. The store is a mélange of textures: Gold damask and floor-to-ceiling mirrors cover walls on the ground floor, which is divided into three rooms dedicated to handbags, accessories and shoes. Damask also lines display cases framed in polished steel.

A black marble staircase leads to a similar setting for women’s ready-to-wear, while beige carpeting, a painted canvas ceiling and velvet mohair seating soften the decor for an elegant effect.
