Above, we are also enthusiastic to share a few pictures from our recent PORTOFINO celebration at Zurich’s Grieder, in collaboration with master leather craftsmen Santoni.
The event featured a master watchmaker and shoemaker who entertained Zurich’s elegant elite with their knowledge and intense labors of love, as well as delicious Italian treats from Zurich’s famed Bindella restaurant.
