The Palm Beach-based duo behind Badgley Mischka give the island the boutique it deserves.

Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka have always had a special spot in their hearts for Palm Beach, first as part-time residents of the town and now as year-round islanders. This season they’re showing that love with a new boutique at The Royal Poinciana Plaza that encapsulates what the area is all about. “We designed the store as a sleek white box with a gallery feeling in order to showcase our decidedly decorative product,” says Badgley. “We started coming down for trunk shows on Worth Avenue when we were beginning our career. The Palm Beach woman has truly developed our aesthetic and the understanding of our customer over the years.” And it shows. The new space, marked by expansive windows, driftwood floors and Spanish and Italian antiques, houses the entire Badgley Mischka oeuvre. That includes eveningwear, cocktail and daytime garments clearly influenced by their hometown, as well as handbag and jewelry collections that will only be available here. Curated extras such as oversized hurricane lamps, vases, beaded napkin rings, bench-made cache pots with Anglo-Indian detailing and glass trays are also available. 340 Royal Poinciana Way, 561.619.7827

Is there a better brand for exquisite presents than Asprey London? The label has Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and all other gift-must occasions covered. This holiday season all that will be on display at The Asprey Gallery, a new so-called “ephemeral store” that just opened shop in The Royal Poinciana Plaza. This treasure trove houses all the items that have made Asprey an aesthete’s favorite for years. Among the goods: the celebrated Palm Leaf handbag collection, signature barware like the Lighthouse cocktail shaker, the renowned bespoke cocktail trolley, the Octopus glassware line, animal-head decanters and jewelry such as Chaos amethyst and citrine earrings, and men’s signet rings. Santa, baby, are you paying attention? 340 Royal Poinciana Way
