Boston, L.A., Chicago, Miami Social Diary

On a Wednesday night in Miami, Blumarine, the Italian luxury boutique officially opened its first flagship in the U.S. Blumarine founder and designer, Anna Molinari, along with Filippo and Helena Alzetto, who own the rights to the US Blumarine boutiques, invited guests to celebrate the new store at the Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables.

Guests were dressed in Blumarine’s ultra chic and sexy apparel, and in the spirit of Capri, where Mrs. Molinari has a home, a special cocktail was created by Snow Queen vodka, Limoncello martinis. Apparently they were very deceptive -- sweet but with a powerful punch. Fueled by this tropical concoction guests including actress Brittney Murphy, CEO of Blufin SpA and son of Molinari, Gianguido Tarabini, Shari Lui Paleologos, Marisa Cisneros Rizzon, Sarah Arison, actress Candela Ferro, art collector Ella Cisneros, Kristen Munroe and author Lora Drasner shopped till they dropped.

The celebration spilled outside into the atrium of Village of Merrick Park, under a tented lounge, where guests enjoyed music and relaxed on trendy white couches topped with hot pink and leopard pillows. A percentage of the evening’s sales benefitted Holtz Children’s Hospital at The University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Medical Center.
