Brunello Cucinelli Anniversary party

I got the chance to co-host the One Year Anniversary of Brunello Cucinelli at South Coast Plaza on April 19th with Suzan Paek of Jessica Grant Handbags and Jeffrey Alan Marks of Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators.  This private event showcased Jeffrey's interior designs, with an opportunity to get his creative advice, in addition to that of Ross Cassidy, also of Million Dollar Decorators.  Stylists from New York were here to lend their expertise, for a fun-filled evening of shopping and champagne.  OC's top caterer, Brian Dobbin, created a taste of Umbria for the evening, tantalizing palates while the styles of Brunello Cucinelli excited our shopping senses.

The Brunello Cucinelli line is a glorious mix of fine cashmere and knits, with luxurious details of fur, feather, and leather.  This is what you imagine wearing while overlooking your vineyard from your estate in Tuscany.  Supple suedes and clever draping make this more than your everyday basic; it's effortless elegance and style.  Even the men's line is quite dapper with the great cuts in the sports coats, chic fits with knits, and the ever charming pocket square.  Personally, I'm in love with the feathered suede loafers. If I ever wore flats, it would definitely be those.  So dreamy! 

Hosts for the evening. Ross Cassidy, myself, Suzan Paek, Jeffery Alan Marks
