We think it was back in about April of 2012, that it was first reported where the shoe designer Donald Pliner and his wife managed to unload their Moroccan inspired mansion on Miami Beach’s famed Star Island, just around the corner from Gloria and Emilio’s house. They are, or were the latest back then of the big names to unload their properties and leave the island. Not for any particular reason that we can figure out, other than perhaps living just the two of them in a 10,000 plus square foot home seems somewhat unnecessary. As reported by the ex-realestalker who has been writing for Variety for some time the home sold to Trudy and Paul Cejas for just under $15 million. We kind of always loved the house and for posterities sake have posted a few of the photos.
Not exactly sure where Donald and the Mrs. ended up, We’re sure its some fabulous condo somewhere, best to do a little poking around before we say anything. Although, we do know they are still around, having opened up / planning to open up their own curated design store.
