The Wildest Basel Style at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach

Miami-style
Art Basel took over our Miami hideaway for a week of debauchery, and now that it's over, we need a week to recover.

We kicked things off with a peaceful, moving dinner to benefit the ACLU, where we talked about how to support the good DACA and Masterpiece fight. The event coincided with our week-long Speak Up Pop-Up Shop where designers like Opening Ceremony and Prabal Gurung and artists like Daniel Arsham and Shelter Serra created limited-edition works to benefit the ACLU.

Then Steven Klein and Visionaire let us all descend into madness with their fetish-themed party to celebrate their latest issue. Amongst whips, chains, and latex, Brooke Candy performed topless and dildo-clad!

Throughout the weekend, NYC street photographer Ricky Powell took Room 40 as his own, where rare prints of his Warhol, Basquiat, Cindy Crawford, and Beastie Boys photos were up for grabs in addition to his new book, The Individualist. 

To close out the week, we had a Lazy Sunday BBQ with our friends at Tiki Disco. It was less lazy and more dance-y.

Here's all the wildest, best style we saw throughout the week. You really brought it this year.
