At Art Basel and Design Miami 2014
Glancing out the window on this cold, grey, rainy day in New York City, it’s hard to believe that just last week we were frolicking in the sunshine in Miami, immersing ourselves in art and design and running into friends like Su Wu and Brent Dzekciorius on the street while flitting between parties and champagne brunches. While the primary purpose of our time there was to launch a new collaboration with Print All Over Me for the shop at the Standard (read all about that here), we managed to squeeze a million other activities into our four-day trip, from a visit to the impeccably curated Untitled art fair to a bizarre slide lecture and fashion show by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe to a 3AM performance by rapper Rae Sremmurd at a local nightclub that left our ears ringing for three days straight. While you won’t find that particular dalliance documented here, we did take plenty of photographs of art and design; some of our favorites are posted below, with almost 100 more viewable today on our Facebook page.
