So we’re finally beginning our Travel Essentials series… We all wish we were at the beach. So here are a few quick hints about Miami to begin with, for June.

The Essential Guide for Miami


The city’s Art Deco heritage at Nautilus is a must (1825 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach), designed in the 1950s by Morris Lapidus and recently reopened by Sixty Hotels.


No Man’s Land: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection. The rotating mega-exhibition takes place at the 28-gallery, 45,000-square-foot museum (95 NW 29th Street, Miami) through May 28.

The Asian-, South American-, and French-influenced cuisine at Juvia, located atop the Herzog & de Meuron – designed parking garage at 1111 Lincoln Road. Arrive before sunset to savor the stunning views of South Beach.


These are the kinds of summer essentials that are necessary – forget everything else, right? Your passport holder, and of course sunglasses…. We are loving these wooden frames by the Greek brand Enlite, and the Tox leather passport holder is just an added soft touch, to keep the luggage light.
