Cadillacs are hard to find. Just ask any Pilates enthusiasts, and they’ll agree. Enter Nofar Method on Miami Beach with its super outfitted studio on Washington Avenue, where Cadillacs, reformers, and salt features that naturally ionize the air by infusing it with Himalayan salt crystals set this studio apart. Nofar Method allows clients to develop a strong core, gain long performance, and prevents injuries. Class exercises are effective and fun and deliver cardio, alignment, and, of course, “the burn.” For New York snowbirds, note Nofar’s two Manhattan locations.



New Louis Vuitton timepieces, inspired by the personal collections of Gaston-Louis Vuitton, are imbued with technical virtuosity and combine a wide range of métiers d’art to represent the next chapter of fine watchmaking. Among the new releases, Voyager Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève Plique-à-Jour brings the enamel into the 21st century in high style. The Voyager’s dial turns into a modern stained-glass window, revealing the perfection of a flying tourbillon movement. Another point of note is the plique-à-jour enamel, which is bound to reclaim its top spot as a rare, complex technique still used by exceedingly few European artisans. The dial was crafted entirely at the Louis Vuitton’s La Fabrique du Temps workshop to further elevate Voyager’s exclusivity. The timepiece can be viewed at Louis Vuitton flagship at Aventura Mall.
