Local News: Dadeland Mall Announces New Stores and Store Expansions‏

Simon, a global leader in retail, announced that Melissa Shoes will join the dynamic mix of tenants at Dadeland Mall this June. Additionally, Kay Jewelers has opened in a new space, and retailers Coach and Steve Madden will finalize their renovations this summer.

“Dadeland Mall continues to evolve and expand our retail offerings for the discerning shopper,” said Dailen Rodriguez, director of marketing and business development at Dadeland Mall. “Already a dynamic center, these new additions and renovations further elevate our center as a world-class shopping destination in Miami.”

Brazilian label Melissa Shoes will open a 1,203 square-foot store near the main entrance, across from The Cheesecake Factory, in June 2015. The brand is known for their plastic jelly shoes that are more like works of art than everyday footwear. Their designs are colorful and include bright pink t-strap wedge sandals and flip-flops, bubbly clear “sneakers,” glitter-infused flats with zigzag patterns, and peep-toes in every color imaginable. Founded in 1971, Melissa continues to innovate by partnering up with creative collaborators such as architect Zaha Hadid, punk doyenne Vivienne Westwood, and daring dress designer Alexandre Herchcovitch. The designs are fun, odorless, comfortable and conveniently recyclable.

Coach, established in New York City in 1941, is a leading design house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle collections with a rich heritage of pairing exceptional leathers and materials with innovative design. The Dadeland Mall Center Court store is undergoing a full renovation and is slated to open in a new 3,800 square-foot space in June.

Founded almost 100 years ago as a single storefront, Kay® Jewelers has grown to nearly 1,000 stores from coast-to-coast and today is the number one jewelry store in America. Its commitment to unparalleled customer service and offering a wide selection of beautiful brand name jewelry and watches ensures an exceptional shopping experience. Kay® is home to some of the most sought after brands in the industry including The Leo Diamond®, Open Hearts by Jane Seymour®, Charmed Memories®, Neil Lane Bridal® and Neil Lane Designs®, Le Vian® and many more. The 1,910 square-foot Kay Jewelers store is now open in their new space near Macy’s Children & Home.

Since 1990, Steve Madden has created shoes and more that are innovative, sometimes wild and always spot-on-chic. The full renovation of the 2,698 square-foot space is set to open in the Fashion Wing on May 15.

And, new to the Fashion Wing, Level 1, is a new concept from Venezuela, Vaskia Jewelry. The kiosk features a new concept in jewelry with contemporary 18k gold jewelry designs. Styles vary from classic designs to modern and contemporary pieces to satisfy any taste.

Jewelry Report: The Story Behind Jason of Beverly Hills' Head-Turning Addicted Collection‏

Some years ago, Jason of Beverly Hills mastermind Jason Arasheben curated the Addicted Collectionwith friend and designer Markus Molinari. With diamond-detailed items like a syringe ring, razor blade necklace and a spoon ring, it’s no wonder the collection has been considered controversial since its debut almost three years ago.

The reference to such heavy drugs immediately catches anyone’s attention, but what the naked eye can’t see is the meaning and inspiration of this collection. The collection is a reflection of Arasheben’s personal addiction and fascination to diamonds. Arasheben says the Addicted Collection is “a play on words” and used his ‘addiction’ to diamonds to celebrate the collection, while also shedding light to serious addictions to drugs, alcohol and sex.

The Addicted Collection has been seen on A-listers Lindsay Lohan, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.
