Yes, the weather was unusually mild this week, but nothing beats Miami sunshine. So, needless to say, I'm pretty jealous of all the Art Basel coverage streaming across my Twitter and RSS feeds. For the uninitiated, Art Basel Miami Beach is a 4-day extravaganza of art, design, beautiful people, and of course, fashion! Harper's Bazaar combined all four with a pop-up and photo shoot featuring the cheeky, sometimes scary, creations of artist Takashi Murakami.
Staged at the Soho Beach House, HB's Murakami-decorated pop-up shop is curated with an array of designer goods. Murant, McQueen, Balmain, and more, fashionable finds abound among little monsters and rich wood paneling.
Preceding Art Basel, HB took Murakami's monsters for a spin around L.A., treating them to lunch, frozen treats, and shopping on Rodeo Drive. Yes, it's a strange combination, but pretty fantastical.
