The following is my coverage of night two of Art Basel, as seen on V Magazine:

Friday, December 6th. The well-read and the well-heeled came together last night at Miami’s Soho Beach House for a private dinner hosted by Artsy and Valentino, celebrating CalArts’s latest addition to the empire: a new building of artists’ studios named in honor of artist and alumni John Baldessari. Under a swank gray tent peppered with white chandeliers, guests like it-girls Atlanta de CadenetLady Victoria Hervey, and Nicky Hilton sat on shabby-chic couches while the Atlantic crashed just beyond a row of tiki torches.

Calvin Klein Art Basel Party at the Webster – V Magazine


The following is a clip from my Art Basel coverage, as seen on V Magazine:

Calvin Klein’s Webster residence on Thursday night was technically a showcase of the house’s private collaboration with the store—a modern selection of Francisco Costa-designed knits, crop-tops, and dresses, all in shades of black, white, or red—but like all CK gatherings, it was so much more than that. After guests like Leigh Lezark and Derek Blasberg finished milling around the store’s second floor sipping champagne, it was up to the roof, where Mr. Costa held court with Alessandra Ambrosio. Nearby, Amy Sacco shared a laugh or two with Art Production Fund’s Yvonne Force, looking stunning in a classic Calvin Klein column gown. Elsewhere, Ryan McGinley negotiated the placement of a white rose in a very pretty woman’s hair while a dance floor quickly developed, all to a perfect soundtrack of music provided by DJ Mike Nouveau.

The following is an excerpt of my interview with Rafael de Cardenas on his collaboration with Nordstrom, featured in V Magazine:

Stepping into a Rafael de Cárdenas-designed space is like stumbling into a parallel, postmodernist universe, where the standard perception of a room is challenged, stretched past its normal limitations. With an intense palate of colors and an oft-dizzying array of patterns, Cárdenas, founder of the New York design agency Rafael de Cárdenas Ltd. / Architecture at Large, creates an explosive 3-dimensional experience by cutting up and dividing surfaces in ways that make them wholly new.
