Between Art Miami, NADA, Pulse, Design Miami… the list goes on… there’ll be a point this week when all we want is some breathing room, a cocktail, and a little retail therapy. Fortunately, part of the Art Basel festivities include designer collaborations and Miami-centric beauty. Here’s what’s worth hitting while you’re in town:
Our Lady Linda
The Gap and Visionaire are collaborating for the second time (11 years later) on a limited-edition series of 45 t-shirts. One features the lovely Linda Evangelista (the super of all supers, in my book). The tees will be available at Gap in Miami and NYC, and at – where else – The Webster.
Piamita x The Webster
What better boutique than The Webster for Miami’s best fashion (a little less Hervé and a little more Proenza)? Coinciding with Art Basel Miami Beach, The Webster’s collaboration with loungewear brand Piamita hits the store with flamingo-laden silk separates. Perfect to wear in the day, for dinner, or to bed, this set will take you anywhere. 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
NARS Loves Miami
If you’re heading to Miami from NYC, chances are you had to dig into the depths of your closet to find something less black and more … exuberant. If the thought of a shocking pink dress is too painful to bear, you might be able to work in a splash of Miami heat across the face a little better. Cue: NARS Loves Miami, a collection of the best-selling colors from the beach in one very convenient box-set. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour.
SUNO’s Capsule Collection at The Webster
The Webster will be the only place to find this SUNO capsule collection – eight tropical-fresh pieces full of bright colors and prints (flamingo-mascot-inclusive). The Webster’ll host a party to kick off the capsule. Available from December 5.
Colette Art Drive-Thru at Alchemist
For a completely different shopping experience, roll on over to Herzog & Meuron’s parking structure (5th floor). Place your order and let girls on roller skates deliver your selections right to the car window – think André “Art Smoke” e-cigs, a Rolex by Bamford, Delfina Delettrez jewels, a Darcel beach towel, and a Moncler/Pharrell collab, among many, many other things.
