ONE OF MIAMI'S favorite retailers has relocated to Houston.

Rosangela Capobianco, whose Capo Couture sources hard-to-find Brazilian clothing and jewels, has been based in H-Town for years. Now she’s moving her beautiful pop-up events at The St. Regis, starting Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 17 and 18. “We will be featuring Brazilian brands and artists that will influence a new era of fashion,” according to Capo.

Unique jewelry pieces use gems from mines in South Africa and Brazil that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Important Brazilian artists will also be featured.

“We carry more than 20 different Brazilian designers and a few more from South America and the U.S.,” according to the website. “In fact, we search the entire continent for top-of-the-line brands to enhance our selection. We bring a mix of well-known top designers and some new, fresh and talented upcoming artists that are new to the fashion scene.”

Capobianco founded Capo with her sister-in-law, Joanna Amado. Their main storefront is in Miami.

Pieces on offer include Sophia Hegg’s pastel bohemian dresses and tops, Al Mare’s sophisticated bikinis, Priscilla Whitaker’s colorful sandals, Sy & Vie’s artistic handbags and Andrea Bogosian’s sexy shorts sets.

NEWS OF RECENT commissions by Houston artist Paul Fleming led us to several photos of his eye-catching, large-scale wall installations, many of which are installed in the sunlit interiors of some of the city’s most beautiful homes and apartment communities, including the resident lounge of The Southmore, located just a few blocks from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
