Ah Dios Mios – you would think that updates to your website are suppose to benefit you. Not haul down your site for 3 days, which is equivalent to to a century in blogger years. But now all is up and running and I can continue with my news about the mews of Art Basel. Praise the lord, hallelujah.
My 3rd night in the M.I.A. began with the opening of the first Agnona Boutique in the U.S. of A. The clean and crisp boutique lined it racks with bevies of leather and cashmere tokens – delicately placed and very inviting. I do find it surprising that they chose Miami as oppose to New York or Los Angeles for their debut boutique, but maybe they know something that I don’t know.
Just halfway down the block in the Design District is the Marni boutique where Francesco Jodice showed off his “L’Arte del Ritratto” Furniture installation. Block colored lounge chairs saturated in purple, pinks and blues were the spotlight of the event. It was actually a mini fete where I ran into my favorite Italianos and sipped on champagne – Bene! Since we were on a tight schedule, we were sadly in and out in a jiffy. On the other side of the block, Fendi Casa was exhibiting Andy Warhol’s Contemporary collection, but the AmFar/MAC had begun and it was time to get a move on.
Back on the beach, Soho Beach House hosted AmFar/MAC for their auction/event. Not nearly as packed as the Chanel Art.sy party from the night before, this time upon entering massive boiling tray of meatballs and risotto greeted us instead of Paella. Delicioso!
I capped off my evening with good friends at Amy Sacco’s Rec Room at the Gale Hotel (My basement, could have been in my PJs) followed by Silencio followed by bed… Bisous NYS
