Dear Miami

img_8456as.jpg

Before we move on from Art Basel Miami Beach, I thought I would leave you with my list of favorites from this year…and some more of my ABMB streetstyle photos to boot. xo eddie

Best ABMB hotel deal: none
Best Cuban restaurant – food: Versailles
Best Cuban restaurant – authentic atmosphere: El Palacio De Los Jugos
Best party scene – posh: a tie between the Vanity Fair party at the Raleigh pool and the Colette party at the pop-up Le Baron that took over the Florida Room at the Delano
Best party scene – hipster: the Deitch Projects-hosted parking lot party at the O.H.W.O.W. space in Wynwood
Best muses: Fifi and SJB
Best personal theme song: “Dear Miami” by Roisin Murphy
Best satellite art tent: Scope
Best support for the notion that contemporary art is a scam: the Art Positions
Best it-might-be-a-scam-but-I-still-wish-I could-afford-one-of-these: a tie between the huge, paint-splattered/silk-screened/computer-scanned/Warhol-referencing pop collages from Mr. Brainwash and the similarly Warhol-esque silkscreens by Russell Young which feature the face of Kate Moss superimposed over the mugshot photo of Myra Hindley…

So long Art Basel – I hope to see you in 2009!

  • Thank you for the good adresses in Miami !
    I didn’t go there since i was 14 and i will be there in 2 weeks for holiday !

  • Copycat
  • I still find it strange to see women in tiny dresses in the middle of December! God, I need a vacation!

  • who is the girl in the leopard print blouse? i adore her and her style and see her everywhere on your blog!

  • Leopard print blouse – that’s Fifi from London. She’s a cool girl on the scene and one of my favorite muses.

  • I love the gorgeous coat/dress on the first girl! Where can I get it?! She looks amazing!

  • 1st girl – her coat is Marc Jacobs – Spring 2008 collection. Look around – you should be able to find it without too much trouble.

  • Funny

    Hi,I’m a Chinese…
    I like the pics!!

  • That last picture of Kate is awful, and I can not believe you put this on your sight, you realize the person Kate is shown as murdered 10s of children? Not cool
