Chloé Fashion Show at Soho Beach House
Miami’s Fashion Week Swim marked the U.S. debut of the Chloé Spring 2013 collection at Soho Beach House, which turned its pool area into a catwalk for the occasion. The who’s who of fashionable Miami were treated to a show of safari-meets-folk garb embellished with lace and military details. Afterward, guests sipped Peroni and Moët & Chandon in the balmy garden and grooved to DJ Johnny the Boy. –Hadley Henriette

Artefacto Home Opening Party at Aventura
Artefacto Home hosted the grand opening of its luxury furnishings showroom on Biscayne Boulevard in Aventura. Guests worked the room to the music of DJ Irie as they took in Paulo Bacchi’s vision for the Brazilian design brand at the 42,000-square-foot two-level showroom and viewed new collections, including the debut of celebrity designer Briggs Solomon’s first-ever furniture line designed exclusively for Artefacto. –L.G.

Rende Gerber and Roberto Serrallés celebrated the launch of Caliche, their new light Puerto Rican rum, at The Bath Club’s courtyard in North Miami Beach. DJ Mr. Best spun tunes as notables—such as Cindy Crawford (Gerber’s wife), Jillian Altit, Oribe and Michelle Pooch— sported complimentary fedoras while sipping Caliche mojitos and toking hand-rolled cigars. –H.H.
