Click here for the full silent auction list.
Here we’ve selected a few key pieces from the auction in the timeless shades of black and white. We’re sure you’ll find plenty to go along with these looks, but if not, they’re good enough to build a wardrobe—or even a wedding—around.
Experience the timeless elegance of the Carolina Herrera Bridal Collection. For your most important day, the Belvedere gown is the embodiment of the ultimate in wedding luxury. Cut in panels of silk faille, the corseted bodice accentuates the waist. Tiny bows elongate and slim the body. The peplum and voluminous silk faille skirt with its grand bustle and cathedral train create a silhouette that is both regal and refined. Also included is Carolina Herrera’s expert tailoring service to customize the wedding gown for a perfect fit.
Bulgari's Serpenti watch features two of the brand's signatures: the snake symbol and the Tubogas bracelet. The 35 mm stainless steel case features round brilliant-cut diamonds and a silver opaline dial with a guilloche soleil treatment and a diamond bezel.
Every Bal Harbour shopping experience is a special one, but we’re not opposed to upping the ante a bit with Champagne and friends. Anne Fontaine is donating a $2,000 VIP Gift Card to be used toward the exclusive Precious Collection. Four guests can help you decide which lacy look is right for you. If you ask us, we’re leaning toward the Cristal dress, Maily trench and Nellora bolero jacket.
Pomellato presents one of its more romantic collections, Victoria, for its auction donation. The 18 karat rose gold and carved jet earrings were first modeled by actress Tilda Swinton in last year’s campaign for the Italian luxury jewelry house. We think they’ll look just as good on you!
Beeline for Balenciaga on Thursday so you can ogle the insane limited edition white crocodile clutch. With its classic hardware and zipper pulls, this is one tough little accessory—and one you’ll find difficult to put down.
It was love at first sight when Valentino introduced its Noir capsule collection this season. We were particularly swooning for the all-over Rockstud tote, which is sold out. Not to worry though, there’s still one chance to snag this super coveted piece of arm candy, at the charity auction for Destination Fashion.
Once you go Versace, there’s no going back. So watch out for the seductive Vanitas Demetra handbag in black embroidered nappa leather.
When it comes to coats, there are few that compare to Max Mara. In fact, the Italian luxury brand just celebrated a milestone with the book, Coats! Max Mara: 55 Years of Italian Fashion. So you’ll want to make sure you get your hands on the stunning belted Bird coat in black rabbit fur.
