Kiliwatch Miami: This Design District store is like a mega-fashionista heaven from Paris. With an avant-garde sense of style (at least for Miami's typical boutique) and French owners, Kiliwatch (38198 NE Second Ave., Miami) is its own breed. It's a lifestyle concept store managed by owners and siblings Alban and Paloma de Mazieres. At their store, you can find furniture, books, gadgets, fedora hats, shirts for him, dresses, jeans and whatever else you need to fill your closet. We stopped by their one-year anniversary shindig last night, and spoke with Paloma about Wildfox, Banksy, and street wear.
