You already know that Cottage Miami is quite the score when it comes to Miami boutiques and this Thursday it's about to get better. The boutique will be hosting not one, but two events to celebrate CFDA-award winning designer Michael Bastian, and you'll get to meet him at both.
The first event is a trunk show presenting his Spring 2014 collection, which was a hit at this year's Fashion Week. Tickets are available through Gilt City for $40, and includes light bites and wine, a VIP gift bag valued at $100, and the chance to browse and shop his collection first, which includes bright pineapple pants and the kind of suits that make a gentleman out of any man.
The second event is a cocktail reception from 7 to 9pm honoring the designer. You may not be able to peruse his collection at this party, but you will be able to rub elbows with Bastian just like you will the trunk show. Pull out your best seersucker for this, boys, because this is one classy soiree you don't want to miss.
