The first U.S. outpost of the Colombian gift shop Inkanta is the perfect place to score a memento of design-mad Miami. (Hungry for a Kidrobot banana figurine?) The jewel box–like store—gleaming white walls contrasting with a perforated stainless-steel counter—is the work of up-and-coming local architecture firm NC-office. The boutique’s stock and aesthetic are in step with its Miami Beach location, a visionary public-garage-as-upscale-retail-space that opened last year. Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, it may be the world’s only must-see car park. —Meeghan Truelove
