Miami Fête: (RED) Auction, Fendi’s Peekaboo Anniversary, and More

By Pearl Fontaine

December 6, 2018

Whether your idea of a good time lies within the realms of fashion, design, philanthropy, or musical entertainment, last night in Miami was one to remember.

Sotheby’s and Gagosian hosted Miami’s third (RED) Auction yesterday evening, calling on the artistic community to help raise awareness and life-saving funds for the fight against AIDS. Guests like Marc Quinn, Guggi Rowan, Ebony G. Patterson, Hank Willis Thomas, Naomi Campbell, Larry Gagosian, Christian Louboutin, and Bobby Shriver came together at the Moore Building in Miami’s Design District, where an exclusive red-themed reception and auction curated by Theaster Gates and Sir David Adjaye OBE, with the support of Bono (who were also in attendance) took place. Fronting the auction was Gates’ A Flag for The Least of Them, alongside donated works by Sir Jony Ive, Jenny Saville, Marc Newson, and other prominent creatives. Including matching funds donated by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the evening raised $10.5 million toward the cause.

The debut of Misha Kahn’s “The Bellyflop Collection” transformed The Miami Beach EDITION’s poolside with a launch event hosted by Artsy and Prospect NY. The collection features an array of outdoor entertaining essentials like ice buckets, bottle openers, glass straws, and pool floats in Kahn’s signature style—which often includes metallic teeth-like details and pops of bright color. Guests like Gaia Matisse, Majid Al-Suwaidi, Maynard Monrow, Chris Wolston, Karen Robinovitz, Elizabeth Margulies, and Chloe Wise could be seen celebrating the playful collection amid an enchanting installation of Kahn’s tie-dye creations.

Fendi continued the celebration if its iconic Peekaboo bag’s 10-year anniversary yesterday at the house’s boutique in the Miami Design District. Fendi invited designers Chris Wolston, Kiichiro Ogawa, Oscar Wang, Teo Yang, and Sabine Marcelis to transform a white canvas version of the Peekaboo bag—designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi—into a masterpiece bearing their own work. Attendees including Aleali May, Sami Miro, Craig Robbins, Akiko Mori, Nico Vascellari, and Delfina Delettrez Fendi were able to view the creations (displayed on special podiums by Marcelis) and preview a limited-edition Peekaboo bag Venturini Fendi designed exclusively for Miami Art Week.

All who visited the Faena Hotel last night would agree that Winnie Harlow was the star of Perrier-Jouët’s L’Eden. The international supermodel kicked off a night of merriment by leading an entourage of overflowing Belle Epoque bottles into the venue, before making her musical debut. After performing her first-ever DJ set, Wolf + Lamb took the stage, entertaining the crowd until late into the evening.
