We're In Miami, Trick: Your Art Basel Roundup

by SARAH MANDATO · December 4, 2009

Stavros Niarchos Art Basel is turning to be a little bit of New York City gone to the beach, as Manhattan's art scene and scene-scene heavyweights are playing hard at party hopping in Miami. Last night's socializing highlights are almost too many to count, so we'll give you just a taste. You might want to take a second to prepare.

The rounds aren't over, yet! Hot spot number three is The Webster. Pucci's Peter Dundas held a dinner for diners including Olivier Zham, Pharrell Williams, David Maupin, Stefano Tonchi, Jean Pigozzi, Lyle Lodwick, Genevieve Jones and  Nadja Swarovski. The multi-brand fashion store was an ideal setting, as the expanse of the art-deco building offered a dramatic backdrop to contrast the presentation of an intimate meal.
