A globally-sourced collection curated by Lourdes de Guardiola

Lourdes de Guardiola’s gypsy roots resulting from her equestrian jetset lifestyle have found a home this season at the Esplanade. Located on the second floor above Gucci, Lourdes has transformed a blank canvas, creating a haven for linen from Bali, Swimwear from Brazil, jewelry from Argentina, perfect beach hats from Ecuador and handmade leather bags made in America. “While traveling the world as a professional show jumper, I have been able to cultivate relationships with global designers.  I’ve found inspiration within their cultures and have been able to create this space based upon these experiences” says Lourdes de Guardiola.

A private trunk show for Alvin Valley, took place before Milou’s official opening.  In spite of it being under the radar, the success led to a permanent representation for the King of Pants at Milou.  Lourdes will be hosting more events throughout the season.  She has her pulse on the new upcoming designers from South America  looking to make their mark in the Palm Beach market.

Lourdes also intends to utilize the newly revamped Esplanade at 150 Worth, hosting a runway fashion show later on in the season.  

Be sure to visit miloupalmbeach.com to sign up for newsletters, events, and promotions.  With Lourdes’ constant craving for change, there won’t be a party you should miss this season.

Milou will be celebrating it’s official Grand Opening with a cocktail celebration November 20th.  All are welcome from 5-9 on Tuesday to kick off the holiday weekend.
