The Best & Most Interesting Looks From Art Basel Miami 2019

Wow do I miss Miami right now. The sunshine, the art, the people, the music, the food – and here I am back in rainy NYC. But for a couple of days, we experienced some of the best this international art fair has to offer. First of all, it was impossible to capture ALL the great fashion going on here. The official Art Basel fair attracts over 70,000 visitors, and that’s not including everyone who attends the many auxiliary fairs going on in South Beach and Wynwood. There is A LOT going on during this art week in Miami.

It is a great place to get a handle on all the trends in resort wear, if you’re lucky enough to escape to someplace warm this winter. Ladylike pastels have given way to saturated colors, bold stripes, graphic prints, and contrasting florals. Then there’s the whole what-do-I-wear-to-an-art-event question, which is a world in and of itself. Fashion is imitating art here and literally making a statement with language.

Here are some of the best & most interesting looks we saw at Art Basel proper, Untitled, Scope, the South Beach boardwalk, and in the Wynwood Arts District.

Luxe Layers: Olivia Palermo at Miu Miu FW2019

You’ve gotta hand it to Olivia Palermo: she really knows how to put an outfit together. At the Miu Miu show she took a bright orange grandpa cardigan and layered another cardigan underneath with rhinestone buttons and a black lace camisole peeking out. Add black satin pants, and this grandpa look has gotten much sexier!

Kaia, Kaia, Kaia! Kaia Gerber and Friends after Chanel FW2019


A crowd of fans followed Kaia Gerber and friends after the Chanel show. Note the leather coat: we saw a lot of these outside the shows. They’re a great outer layer for blustery spring weather.

VOIR INVITATION: Milano Moda Donna


This is a series I’m doing on what it’s like to be outside the shows at fashion week. Traditionally, when a designer does not want to release the address of a fashion show to the public, they list “VOIR INVITATION” (or “SEE INVITATION” for the New York/London shows) on the official fashion week schedule online. Nevertheless, hundreds of people often show up, especially for brands that have achieved cult status. This series is about the uninvited and the invited and the interaction between the two.

In Milan, many brands listed fashion show locations publicly. At one show, house photographers flew drones overhead to capture scenes of the massive crowd outside.

Hamish Bowles, J.J. Martin and Pepper at Philosophy FW2019


There is a new star on the Milan fashion week scene: Pepper! J.J. Martin’s pug puppy was sadly denied entrance to the Philosophy show yesterday. VOIR INVITATION, Piper! Despite looking somewhat dejected in this photo, she quickly perked up and started licking faces, including Hamish Bowles’.

Bella Hadid at Alberta Ferretti FW2019


Pretty sure that model Bella Hadid made this girl’s day when she posed for a selfie right after this shot was taken. Coveralls and workwear are a thing now. I like how Bella mixed hers with a (faux?) fur hat and luxe shades to glam it up.
