Ari, a men’s wear boutique from Manhattan that opened in 2001, expanded to 1 Hotel & Homes in South Beach. Israeli founder and designer Moshe Ben-Ari specializes in luxury ready to wear and bespoke fashions in cuts for athletic bodies including broad shoulders and slim waists. The collection, which favors fine silk, cashmere and leather with an artisanal twist like overdyed, ultra-lightweight knits for a vintage look and natural vegetable dyes, is produced at small factories throughout Italy. Because most of his clients live between Miami and New York, he sells as many winter coats, from shearlings and down puffers to a new cotton military jacket with a removable fox fur lining for Art Basel and the holidays, in both locations. A little-known tip: He also offers custom fashions for women.
