CHANTECLER
where Capri meets Palm Beach

Hamilton Jewelers hosted a private luncheon in honor of Massimo Zerbini, President of Chantecler who flew in from Capri for a private viewing at Café Boulud on Friday, February 24th.  

Kristina Olsen, Shawn Thompson

Appropriately coined ‘A Taste of Capri’, the by-invitation luncheon transported 30 special guests to Capri via the red Vespa displayed in the conservatory. The custom ordered Maiolica ceramics direct from Capri and one of Chantecler’s signature inspirations were used as table centers.  

Iconic Chantelcer pieces representative of ‘la dolce Vita’ and revered by classics including Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo and Rita Hayworth were displayed throughout the luncheon.

“While we are not widely distributed in the U.S., you don’t have to travel to Capri to experience Chantecler.  Hamilton Jewelers, our exclusive Florida representative, has an extensive collection on-site and access to our limited collections.  Plus, the prices available to be offered by Hamilton are extremely advantageous,” says Massimo Zerbini.

Pop up Tribute to Artist and Icon
PRINCE

Armory Art Center prepares for Purple Reign Event on January 26th

The world of popular culture was rocked in 2016 with the unexpected loss of several major Rock Icons.  Nowhere was the loss of the artist Prince Rogers Nelson known better simply as Prince felt more deeply than in his hometown of Minneapolis.  In a nod to the trendsetting aspects of Prince’s multi-decade career, and out of respect for Prince’s indomitable style, Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine joined forces with the Minneapolis Art Institute to create a Fashion Designer tribute based on Prince’s musical hits. 

Billed as a Special Kiss to Prince, the 2016 Fashionopolis Event featured runway designs inspired by the one-or-a-kind hit maker, Prince, who was known as an Icon of fashion, style, music and creativity.  Eight fashion designers, from Minneapolis to Manhattan to Amsterdam, including “fan favorite” from television’s Project Runway, Christopher Straub, created ensembles to celebrate the Pop Life of the enigmatic superstar who’s pioneering style was flamboyant, sexy, and always impossibly cool.

Winner of seven Grammy awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award, Prince was one of the best-selling musicians of all-time.  Hits included Little Red Corvette, 1999, Purple Rain, Kiss, and When Doves Cry.

The Armory Art Center will feature the highly regarded Pop-Up exhibit at their much anticipated Purple Reign event on January 26th.  Click here to register for the event

No Needles Needed
Swiss Patent FILLERINA

by Maribel Alvarez

I’m one of those women who refuse to use a needle for anything other than as a required vaccine when traveling to an exotic destination or to mend a button.  So when my dear friend Melissa Peverini introduced me to Fillerina, a topical alternative to filler injections so many of my friends had been using for years, I was intrigued..

I targeted my deepest crevices with the precision applicator filled with the dose of topical Swiss Patent hyaluronic acid formula gel, followed by the nourishing film, drank two glasses of water nightly for 2 weeks and was hooked!  I proceeded to order the day, night and eye creams which I use regularly.

It’s now been over 2 months and I continue to receive comments on how much younger I look.. If you have any questions feel free to email Melissa at Melissa.Peverini@fillerinausa.com

I invite you to take a peek at the video below.  Click here to visit the website

Direct from Montecristi to Worth Avenue– Master Weaver Yovanni Mero Pachay at SEQUIN September 27-29

Those of us who appreciate authenticity and quality didn’t get enough of Yovanni Mero Pachay’s beautiful Panama hats  during his first visit to Palm Beach.  Earlier this year, the fifth generation Master Weaver  demonstrated his unique millinery skills and displayed a selection of Montecristi hats at Lars and Nadine Bolander’s Studio 1696.   Due to high demand, Yovanni is returning, this time on the Avenue at Sequin  

clasico extrafino (2) “These hats are not only the real deal,” says local Palm Beacher Richie Horowitz, “they are a fabulous deal! I’ve bought many Montecristi hats over the years, and these prices are less than half what I paid in St. Bart’s and London.”

Trivia information:  Why are they called Panama Hats?

Roosevelt_and_the_Canal smLegend has it that President Theodore Roosevelt brought the hats to popularity in North America when photos were taken of

him wearing one while visiting Panama. But that’s not the only story. As the hats were shipped through the Isthmus canal in Panama before they hit the shores around the world, someone mistakenly thought the hats came from the country famous for its canal. Who knew one person’s misunderstanding would lead to the rest of the world following suit?
