As the co-founder and owner of the super-chic Miami boutique, The Webster, Laure Hériard Dubreuil is an Art Basel expert. This year, we're joining the Paris-born fashionista as she hops between parties and gallery shows. Check in for daily updates from Laure's Art Basel diary, presented by Valentino.
A quick detour from the usual Wynwood and Beach fairs, I visited one of my favorite spots to relax and escape, Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens. Jorge Cardo's exhibition of 103 chandeliers was spread out through the gardens, lighting up the night and all the flowers and plants. We arrived at the golden hour of sunset, which was beautiful and memorable.
Last night marked the beginning of true Art Basel nightlife, which I began by attending the MOCA dinner.
Last night crescendoed with the Interview and Valentino launch of Valentino's Pop Pois collection, which will be sold at the Webster.
A new way to consider the role of the curator and the public's input, Paddle8's exhibit is a must-see for anyone during Basel.
Design Miami is a great and always visually impactful stop onthe Art Basel Miami Beach tour. It inspires me and even helps me grow myaesthetic.
Last night we welcomed Kelly Klein at the Webster for a signing of the sixth book, Pools: Reflections. With photographs by the likes of Robert Polidori, Nikolas Koenig, Mario Sorrenti, and Kelly herself, the book is beautifully curated to show the highlight of pool culture from the 1970s to today.
