Mobile
Art


Among all the crazy Art Basel events that meshed art, design, fashion and music together the best concept this year was the mobile art.  Marc Newson contributed his design genius again, this time on a limited edition Riva mini yacht based concept, which I guess has been out for a while, but was exhibited this past week for Art Basel at the most fabulous low key party of the week. An intimate affair with great music at the Standard’s backyard with Dom  Pérignon and (the very acqua) Newson’s Aquariva docked and ready to be taken for a ride... Masterpiece on water.
On the opposite spectrum of the $1.5 million boat, was the Shop Ride mobile vintage & designer store I encountered in the Design District, something I have not seen before. Love the concept… let the shop come to you.

Finally,
Fashion At
The District


In the last year or so, some serious names like Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Louboutin, Marni, and more have shifted down to the design district to join the already established artistic, culinary and musical scene. It’s still in early stages but extremely great progress. This year, the Design District will celebrate their young neighborhood by joining in Fashion’s Night Out.  Check out what they have going on at Miamidesigndistrict.net and join the festivities.

Classic
Illustrations


After its official 100 year birthday this past January, Jantzen swimwear is one of the oldest swim lines out there. So it would only make sense that with that much history they would have pretty amazing vintage ads. Currently loving the illustrations in the ads, some of which were done by illustrator Pete Hawley in the 40s and 50s. I recently encountered this ad for “The Shouldaire” from 1931, a bathing suit designed to solve the problem of tan lines, the straps come down without the bathing suit falling off; where is that technology now?! Also, check out the price tag on those great sandals. PC: Jantzen.com
