Profile

Along with business partner and former Prada gal Alexandra Hahn, Serbian-born shoe designer Dusica Sacks opened this futuristic, austere boutique as the first American showcase for her original, edgy creations. The brand has since made a name for itself with the uniqueness of its twice-yearly shoe and handbag collections, as well as for hosting cheeky runway shows during Miami's Fashion Week. Made from exotic skins and leathers like angora, crocodile, and pony, Dusica shoes are the antithesis of the status heels of Gucci or Manolo; and with such limited quantities produced, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone wearing an identical pair. With reverence to the artistic, handcrafted designs—which are manufactured in Italy—the store displays its wares in a raw setting, with shoes resting on the bare cement floor next to spare wood benches and chairs. There are flat-heeled riding boots made from leather, suede and fur, and sexy, pointy-toed slingbacks in various shades of python skin. Brightly colored ballet slippers are a year-round staple, while in the accessories department, buttery leather bags tend toward wearable, basic styles like slouchy totes and hobo purses.

Key Departments

Bridal Shoes

Created by two Serbian women who've shared a love of shoes since childhood, this sumptuous salon's handmade footwear is at once modern and timeless. Pearl-tone flats and high heels are fashioned from fine satin and emphasize comfort. The line also includes a variety of stilettos, kitten heels, and strappy sandals in a range of wedding-appropriate tones, some bedecked with Swarovski crystals. Styles change seasonally and are often inspired by lingerie, with straps and delicate accents. The salespeople are all magazine stylists, so they're eager to impart advice.
