Why Miami Could Be The Next Fashion Capital Of The US

Miami’s renaissance over the past decade has been city-wide: the rise of Wynwood, the Design District, Art Basel, the expansion of Midtown and Brickell, and the development of buzzy new design hotels like Life House and Palihouse. It’s an alchemy that has shifted the city’s reputation and tourism footprint from the garish South Beach party scene, to a world-renowned art and design hub. As a result, the fashion community is following suit. The onset of Miami-based emerging designers continues to see an uptick, with local boutiques like Volver, Antidote and Mrs. Mandolin supporting them. Without succumbing to the pressures of the fast fashion cycle, Miami provides an opportunity for creative communities and sustainable fashion brands to grow at a more sustainable pace.

But after nearly a full calendar year of Sonic- and non-Sonic-related tumult, the long shots from South Beach are within striking distance of winning the NBA Finals.

On Monday, the William Hill sportsbook listed the Heat as +320 underdogs while the Lakers were -400 favorites. That means you’d make $320 on a $100 bet on the Heat to win it all, while you’d have to wager $400 on the Lakers to win $100. Miami star Jimmy Butler disagrees with those odds.

Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat challenge the LeBron James superteam model

When Leonard made his power move last offseason, signing with the Los Angeles Clippers and convincing Paul George to force a monster trade to join him, the two-time Finals MVP was hailed as the competitor who balanced the league. He had no interest in joining LeBron James and Anthony Davis to form a superteam with the Los Angeles Lakers. He wanted to battle them, for L.A. and the Larry O’Brien Trophy. But his merge-with-a-peer approach was actually more of the same in this NBA era of nomadic superstars. Meanwhile, Butler was just an oddball, roving franchise player in search of something indecipherable.

Well, you can decipher what he was searching for now.

Butler left a young, star-studded cast in Philadelphia for a gritty Miami squad that didn’t make the playoffs in 2019. It seemed to be change for the sake of change. In reality, it was the genius decision of
