(PRESS RELEASE) MIAMI — Leading luxury jewelry and timepiece retailer Mayors opened its first new flagship store in Merrick Park this past weekend as part of the second stage of the retailer’s relaunch investment. By relocating to a more prominent location within the outdoor mall and being the exclusive multi-brand luxury watch retailer in Merrick Park, Mayors has plans to build upon its position as the #1 destination for jewelry and timepieces in the Southeastern United States.

Merrick Park is the first Mayors store designed by Michael Neumann Associates (MNA) and will set the principles and aesthetics for the renovation of all the stores in Mayors’ portfolio. MNA previously designed the much-heralded Watches of Switzerland stores in Soho and Hudson Yards, New York. The 4,700 sq. ft. open plan layout is divided into three main spaces by screens of ebonized wood and shimmering brass, a leitmotif of the dark façade. From the moment you walk through its doors, one will find a spacious open plan area, easily navigable and one that provides a glamorous setting for all shoppers. Stylish Calacatta marble flooring, pale gray carpeting, and crisp white plaster walls and ceilings define the airy, modern environment providing a glamorous setting for the customers.

The main areas will feature the two anchor watch brand–Rolex and Cartier–by the entrance, a flexible and changing retail space for Mayors jewelry and other watch brands and finally, a display space featuring Mayors Bridal and High Jewelry collections. In addition to these main areas, clients can enjoy a drink, relax and mingle in the concierge-style lounge that will offer Cuban coffee by one of Miami’s staples Cafe Versailles backed by a living vertical botanical garden located by the Mayors High Jewelry area.

“We are thrilled to be opening our new flagship store in Merrick Park, a premier shopping location in Coral Gables, Florida,” stated David Hurley, EVP of The Watches of Switzerland Group, US. “Mayors has an amazing history and heritage in Florida and as we invest in transforming the retail space of Mayors into a chic and contemporary space, our goal is to continue to develop a loyal customer and provide impeccable hospitality.”

Unique to the Florida market, Mayors will be introducing an exclusive jewelry collection in collaboration with Miami-born and New York-based jewelry designer, Pamela Love. Her contemporary designs are perfectly in tune with everything a young woman is looking for; exquisite and trendy jewelry which include spiked earrings, moon phase rings and more. Among additional exclusives that can be found only at the Merrick Park boutique include: a special capsule collection with Roberto Coin; the magnificent Regalia collection by the World’s foremost purveyor of cultured pearl jewelry, Mikimoto, will be flown in from Japan specifically for the flagship opening on display for a limited time only; stunning celebrity-worn jewelry by the likes of actress Kristen Stewart and model Irina Shayk from Messika; and exceptional merchandise under the Mayors High Jewelry Collections by premier jewelry partners, JB Star and Uneek.

In addition to a revamped look at their stores, the Mayors retail experience will be heightened with their incomparable selection of jewelry and timepieces including their own Bridal and Fine Jewelry collections and additional luxury timepieces from Breitling, IWC Schaffhausen, Omega, Tag Heuer and Tudor. Additionally, they are introducing collections that will be exclusive to the Merrick Park flagship boutique and will be available #OnlyAtMayors.

Antonini Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold.

mm

Published

(PRESS RELEASE) MILAN — Antonini celebrates its century-spanning history with a significant collection in terms of both its wide and the bold choice made in the use of materials. Faithful to its history, which has seen the exclusive use of gold and diamonds for the ‘ready to wear’ collections, Sergio Antonini – the creative director of the brand – when designing the collection, he had in mind the malleability of gold and its most striking feature, which since antiquity and over the centuries has made it an immediately recognizable element: its sheen.

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold, be it yellow gold or white gold, embellished with subtle waves of diamonds that underline the sensual profiles or some hidden details of the jewels. Soft and supple shapes recall those of the ‘Anniversary’ collection – one of the most iconic and successful collections in the brand’s recent history, designed in 2009 for the company’s 90th anniversary. Very long chains, rings and earrings that shine amongst garments and hair and reveal even brighter stones set at a 45-degree angle. In the more luxe version, in white gold, the surface is completely covered with valuable F-color diamonds that are exceptionally brilliant and sparkly.

Antonini’s dual soul is reflected in the two variants that each of its collections are organized into: yellow gold and white gold, to meet the taste of their markets of reference. From the US that loves white gold and imposing sizes, to Japan that prefers minimal jewelry, passing through the countries of the Russian area where the more traditional yellow gold triumphs.

Since 1919 in the heart of Milan: this is the Antonini story, a company which for three generations has been making jewelry with a unique and recognizable design, directly influenced by the motivation that the city offers, architecture, design and contemporary art, all passions that Sergio Antonini enjoys in his daily life. Beauty and culture are distinctive elements of the showroom in Piazza Borromeo 12: a place of a poignant artistic enchantment, a circle of extraordinary frescoes from the fifteenth century situated in an architectural context that has its roots in the history of the city. In a district where the medieval guilds had their own laboratories, giving the neighborhood its well-known street names: via Orefici, via Moneta, via Zecca, via del Bollo, via Spadari, via Armorari… In such a context, only exclusive creations such as those of Antonini can be made.
