Since we don’t want you to miss out on anything happening in Miami, below we’ve included a recap of some of our favorite spots and events.
Prada hosted the third and final day of Prada Mode Miami yesterday, featuring a full schedule of music, food, fashion, and conversation. Earlier in the day, the fashion house held the talk “Public Access: Offline Media Dissemination,” curated by Document Journal, where Amy Zion moderated a conversation with artists Nestor Siré, Julia Weist, Paul Soulellis, and Mina Cheon on the ways digital media penetrates physical, technical, and political barriers. Next, the house, alongside Derek Blasberg, hosted a cocktail and a private dinner honoring artist Theaster Gates. Thereafter, guests like Kanye West, Venus Williams, Emma Roberts, Mickalene Thomas, Chloe Wise, Craig Robbins, and Hans Ulrich Obrist enjoyed a special performance by Gates and The Black Monks of Mississippi, followed by sets by No Vacancy and DJ Madrid, who closed out the evening.
Wednesday night at The Miami Beach EDITION, Paddle8 and Alexander Gilkes presented a VIP bowling tournament. In the EDITION’s Basement Bowl, Brooke Shields, Jeremy Kost, Ellie Goulding, HRH Princess Eugenie of York, Waris Ahluwalia, and other guests partied to vintage music by Isaac Ferry, competing to win a vintage bowling pin sculpture made by artist Oliver Clegg.
After five years in partnership with Art Basel in Basel, The Vienna Tourist Board joined forces with Art Basel Miami Beach for the first time. To provide fairgoers with artisanal spots to relax and refuel, the pair presented The Grüne Lounge and The Vienna Coffeehouse, which is open through December 9. Beneath the palm trees and lush greenery of the botanical garden, guests experienced Viennese coffeehouse culture while sipping on coffee from Vienna’s Julius Meinl. In the lounge, visitors were able to rest their feet in an environmentally conscious space featuring velvet circular seating by Peter Kohlmaier and EOOS Design, the iconic Lobmeyr chandelier from the Metropolitan Opera, and Viennese wine from the vintner Mayer am Pfarrplatz.
