On October 10, 2012, Italian luxury brand Canali, along with Vice President USA Giorgio Canali and former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, hosted the Grand Opening celebration of the Bal Harbour Shops boutique, followed by an intimate dinner at One Bal Harbour Resort & Spa, with 15 percent of the evening’s proceeds benefitting the Dan Marino Foundation.

Attendees were treated to experience the heritage of ultimate luxury with an exclusive tour of the newly opened boutique and included TV personality, Jonathan Cheban; interior designer Frederic Marq; philanthropists Lydia and Rudy Touzet and Diane and Aristotle Ares; power couple Criselda and Jonathan Breene; handbag designer Laura Buccellati; socialites Martina and Fabian Basabe and Dana and Gary Shear, among many other Miami VIPs and tastemakers.

The new storefront offers an elegant setting in which customers can browse Canali’s array of suits, formal wear, leisure wear, shoes and accessories. Design elements, including marble, stone and woods in rich brown and beige tones, encourage customers to immerse themselves in an Italian atmosphere of tradition and passion. Earthy elements are juxtaposed with Italian glass and Dedar fabrics, helping to divide the space into dedicated areas representing each collection offered at the boutique. The 1,700-square-foot Miami Beach location precedes the New York Canali boutique, to launch Spring 2013 on Madison Avenue. To date, Canali has 227 single-brand boutiques worldwide.
