BRAZIL VIBE MEETS MILAN
Over 50 high-profile guests joined Antonia Giacinti for an exclusive dinner held inside her boutique at Palazzo Cagnola to fete renowned shoe designer Alexandre Birman, showing his collection for the first time in Milan. For the occasion, the hot Brazilian designer, who is a favorite of Hollywood A-listers such as Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba and Alessandra Ambrosio, created mango, flame red and burgundy suede versions of his signature bow-embellished “Clarita” sandal in exclusive for Antonia.
