MIAMI — For luxury watch collectors, there’s no better place to be this Presidents’ Day weekend than here.
They’re coming from all corners of the globe to immerse themselves in the typically Switzerland-centric category at the inaugural Watches & Wonders Miami, four days of displays, activations, sales, dinners and a Brazilian concert to boot, through a collaboration between the Fondation Haute Horlogerie and Miami Design District Associates. Unlike the FHH’s previous versions of the event in Hong Kong from 2013 to 2015, this iteration replaces the convention center venue with the brands’ freestanding stores and pop-ups in the Miami Design District’s Palm Court.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion
