Capri in the City
Capri’s Faraone Mennella comes to Palm Beach’s Via Coquina
Although Faraone Mennella is one of Capri’s most famed jewelry boutiques, the late, namesake designer actually found fame in New York City–not Capri. And like a true, Hollywood story, it all began on the set of Sex & the City. That’s right, Mennella was discovered by fashion designer and Sex & the City wardrobe stylist, Patricia Field, when Carrie Bradshaw was in need for a cameo necklace. It was Mennella’s design that donned Sarah Jessica Parker’s neck in an episode, and that “cameo appearance” would be the beginning of a long standing collaboration between Mennella and Field. In fact, Field loved donning her plucky protagonists in Faraone Mennella’s Stella earrings, the semi-precious encrusted parabolic hoops that became hotter than a night out with Samantha (Kim Cattrall).
Designer and co-founder Amedeo Scognamiglio will be at Via Coquina’s Palm Beach location,
showcasing a selection from his latest collection February 1 to February 3rd.
