Sorry have been out and about over the holidays...and now have the flu but
what an exciting time to live where I live- Miami has so much to offer
during Art Basel that it's almost maddening. (Glen Matlock performing?
As I have the plague, I am going to try and soldier through- last night
popped out for the opening of the Friends with You retail space...was a
great time and happy to see those guys spreading such positive energy in the
world. It's hard not to respond to their optimism- and love the "mass"
element of the work- you can own a piece of FWY for about $100. Awesome.
Also stopped by the Marni store below the FWY space- needless to say, the
clothes are perfect in every way- very sort of modern eccentric and love
that everything is not skin tight. Gorgeous.
Hopped across the street to the Moore Building for the F-Factory- featuring
pop up stores by the likes of Maison Martin Margiela and Fendi. Fendi really
went for it with custom made bags that felt very DIY but with a hefty price
Across the street from all of that is a Gucci pop up showcasing sneakers and
collaborations with the likes of Mark Ronson.
Feel like there is a real opportunity for more "in reach" retailers to get
in on the Basel fever...most festival viewers would love to look at special
edition stuff from the likes of H&M, Uniqlo, etc. Would be very cool indeed
as we surely are in a disposable chic era, no? Hope to rally and catch some
stuff tonight, but may rest up and hit the fairs manana.
