CASANOVA LAUNCHES SECOND SHOWROOM IN NAPLES
The owners of Casanova Boutique opened a second showroom last month in Naples, returning to Bayfront, where the business started 15 years ago. While they continue to operate a gallery in the Village Shops on Venetian Bay, Keith Davison and his wife, Marina, have branched off with a slightly different concept combining art and fashion, including new luxury brands of women’s apparel and leather accessories from Italy, France and other parts of the globe. “My wife’s specialty is Italian clothing lines. She was born in Torino, Italy, and has spent her life in the fashion and clothing world,” Davison said. “My specialty is Murano Glass. I have the largest selection of Murano in the United States. Over the last few years that selection has grown to include fine art from around the world, probably the largest selection of Venetian masks in the U.S., and probably one of the largest selections of ancient coins in the U.S.” Casanova Art & Fashion is now open at 470 Bayfront Place, next to Southern Style Kitchen & Cocktails in the Bayfront mixed-use development where Goodlette-Frank Road meets U.S. 41 along the Gordon River. The new specialty business is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
PDS ARCHITECTURE MARKS 10 YEARS WITH BRAND EVOLUTION
PDS Architecture has revealed its evolved brand, amid its 10th anniversary as a full-service design firm. The evolution began to unfold earlier this month during the Lee Building Industry Association Awards. It includes a logo and introductory video, followed by an animated e-blast and revamped website. Each brand component echoes a literal evolution by paying tribute to the development of function as an art form. This tone and matter are spelled out within each tab of the updated website, with a comprehensive portfolio and client logo list as visual examples. These are mimicked throughout the e-blast. Meanwhile, the logo acknowledges the anniversary by adding the milestone, not altering the colors, fonts or style. For more information, visit PDSArchitecture.com
