Donald J Pliner x Hotel Valencia x Aryana Health Care Foundation

Donald J Pliner, Santana Row, celebrated 10 years of design precision with Custom Made.  For two weeks in September, shoe lovers had an opportunity to customize their own Dacio, Donald J Pliner’s most popular men’s loafer.  Not only did guests select from a range of materials and outsoles, contrast stitching and rubber pods to create the loafer that best suits them, but all Custom Made Dacio designs will be made in the mountains of Italy, where the shoe has been crafted since its inception.

On September 9th and 10th, Donald J Pliner’s Lead Mens Shoe Designer Sisco Sintes was in the Santana Row store to guide customers in designing their own DACIO while dining on small bites and enjoying drinks from MARZ Premium Vodka.


Donald J Pliner also teamed with Hotel Valencia to host a fashion show that included local Santana Row designers Franco Uomo, Ana Cecilia Ortega, W by Worth, and JAKE of Project Runway.  All proceeds benefited the Aryana Health Care Foundation, a foundation that provides free or low cost medical care to the indigent population within Northern California.

Black Bold features top notes of citrus and herbal tones, rounded out with a blend of ground nutmeg and a touch of lotus flower.  Finished with elements of wood and leathery musks, the fragrance contrasts between dark and light and allows the boldness within to come to life.  From the sleek, leather-like wrapped bottle design to the fragrance notes, Black Bold adds a dynamic new dimension to the Kenneth Cole fragrance collection.

Available at Macy's nationwide.
