It often seems that domestically-produced businesses are divided evenly: On one hand, there’s the family-owned interests, quaint for their coziness; on the other, the ferociously financed professional conglomerate thrives, cutting-edge but cold in execution. Boldly striding the middle of our entrepreneurial landscape stands Bal Harbour Shops, both kept securely in a lineage and ranked as the “World’s Most Productive Shopping Center” as ranked by the International Council Of Shopping Centers. The Whitman’s secret? Their stunning array of over 100 top-tier fashion retailers, including Chanel, Prada, Bottega Venneta, Saint Laurent and many more. Always eager to innovate, Bal Harbour Shops has opened a number of notable new shops this season, including previously featured Australian auteurs Zimmermann, menswear mavericks Cesare Attolini and luxury eyewear brand Linda Farrow, ensuring there’s always something new and exciting for everyone to explore at this world-class shopping mecca of style;
