Luxury Retail Store Unveiled New Home Collection in the Miami Design District
Simona’s, a European-inspired luxury retail store with the world’s finest china, silverware, home décor, crystal and unique art pieces in the Miami Design District, introduced the new 2018 home collection made in collaboration by the House of Christian Lacroix and Vista Alegre, Portuguese porcelain manufacturer since 1824. The collection, titled Primavera, was unveiled for the first time in the United States at Simona’s during an exclusive VIP reception for art collectors, lifestyle and design media, socialites and interior designers, on March 22nd, 2018.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed a live jazz performance, sipped champagne, savoured world-class culinary creations by Thierry Isambert catering and enjoyed a live painting session of porcelain pieces by an artist of the House of Christian Lacroix.
“Primavera is one of the most unique porcelain collections to have ever been created and it’s an honor to be the first store in the United States to showcase the masterpieces designed by two international powerhouses such as Christian Lacroix and Vista Alegre,” said Simona Radulescu. “The collection’s spectacular spring elements and hues are perfect for the season and its pieces are guaranteed to add a touch of luxury to every home.”
The Primavera collection exemplifies the House of Christian Lacroix and Vista Alegre’s worldwide reputation for innovation, creativity, and high-quality design. The collaboration was a natural fit as the two celebrated brands share a mutual passion for porcelain and fresh, sophisticated design.
A blend of styles, the Primavera line of decorative and sculptural pieces features tropical exuberance through vivacious floral patterns, colorful birds, and feathers, lush vegetation and fireflies that ornate white porcelain tableware and home décor, evoking memories of airy, sun-kissed spring days. Each piece in the collection also features gold and platinum tones and filaments as well as hand-painted features.
The partnership between the House of Christian Lacroix and Vista Alegre dates back to 2013 when they worked together on a porcelain tableware collection.
Simona’s, founded by Simona Radulescu, features a unique collection of classic, contemporary and artistic designs for the home, long recognized by a sophisticated clientele. The store’s elegant interior combined with cutting-edge, contemporary collections and classic heritage brands, mark its place at the forefront of functional luxury and elegant design.
