Designer Esteban Cortazar w/ PR Maven Tara Solomon of Tara Ink. & husband and Partner Nick D'Annunzio 

Welcome to our ONLINE STORE  and blog. As a product design company we design, manufacture and retail our own barware, lighting and tabletop lines globally and online. 

Each week we give you a peak behind the scenes to the people, places, things and events that inspire us. As we make our way out of quarantine ( depending on which state or country you reside in ) everyone is finding reasons to celebrate.

We got a call two weeks ago from Miami PR Maven Tara Solomon inviting us to celebrate Miami's native Esteban Cortazar's latest collaboration with fashion brand Desigual.

Desigual Esteban Cortazar Collection

With offices in Miami, New York, LA and Palm Springs Tara and Nick have not only their finger but their entire hands on the Pulse. Miami since the 50's has always been NY's 6th Borough, however with tech companies, European Royalty and heirs along with Russian Oligarchs all moving to Miami it has had yet another renaissance.

Desigual Esteban Cortazar Collection

Pieces for everyone, absolutely everyone, to wear to a party or under the water. Shirts that are dresses or jackets for him, her and anyone whomever wants to wear them. Denim garments that can be worn year-round. And others that define the summer, the heat, the good weather and the best mood. Easy-to-wear pieces that all body types feel comfortable in, clothing where the design is in the color and the print.

Desigual always have clothes that put a smile on your face and that love and respect the world, that are socially and environmentally sustainable and made from ecofriendly fabrics like Lenzing™ Ecovero™, Naia™, BCI cotton, Tencel™, Lyocell™ and organic cotton. Clothes designed today, inspired by the past and created for you to enjoy them ALWAYS.  

Esteban says “Valentino Cortázar, artist, is my father and my greatest inspiration together with my mother. His love for color, for women, for life and for the joy of living is the guiding thread of his work. I decided to work with him for this collection with a piece that celebrates one of the most recurring themes in his work: ‘El Beso’, which he painted in South Beach back in the day."

The collection also pays tribute to iconic photographer Andy Sweet. We created a patchwork with his images taken in South Beach in the seventies, before the turmoil and craziness of the nineties, when retirees, the area’s true trailblazers, arrived from all over the world with their eccentric looks to enjoy the Florida sun.

Plus images of the iconic Leslie and Surfcomber hotels, timeless beach moments and art deco architecture. The idea of mixing these two themes and turning the collection itself into a patchwork seemed very fitting and a true snapshot of what Miami was like at the time.”
