Art Basel 2017 was a celebration that started with an intimate Hype Beast dinner, and ended with Drake performing. Basel is always a fun time, where every creative from the surrounding US states land in Miami, for art, fashion, parties and more. We saw some cool fashion brand announcements this season, with Kanye West launching Yeezy season 6 via a load of zine style images posted around the city. Also Marriott Hotel worked with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to introduce #StoryBooked , a project sharing the stories of four artists whose brief was to create art that bridges our differences into a common universal language through art.
Crowds were also wowed by Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist Lars Jan (@larsamerica) with his epic installation called ‘Slow-Moving Luminaries’ on view along the Oceanfront.
The streetwear was also worth talking about, especially the beautiful accessories spotted at the galleries. We sent our photographer @_dotmo to capture all the best style and the coolest, most inspiring accessories. From cute bags to statement jewellery he spotted it all.
Enjoy this curated selection of the looks we scouted from the galleries.
