Art may be the higher calling at Miami Basel, but there are enough temptations to lead astray even the most devout believer. Thursday's undisputed main event was Visionaire’s annual bash, the week’s hot ticket. For this latest installment, the art-cum-fashion powerhouse joined forces with Net-a-Porter to present Jonathan Horowitz’s interactive installation “The Free Store.” Guests were invited to trade in their own goods for choice finds provided by a mix of fashionable luminaries. Trinkets included a shower filter, used socks, splenda packets, a phone number, a Shakira CD, coffee table books including a mint-condition Philip-Lorca diCorcia, a Cars neck pillow, glassware and some surprisingly on-trend clothing pieces (such as a voluminous Calvin Klein coat that was immediately snatched up). Diving into the mix was a glittering assortment of attendees, including Dior Homme’s Kris Van Ashe (celebrating his first Basel), mega-gallerist Gavin Brown, Dita von Teese, Hilary Rhoda and Richard Phillips, who managed to score a choice jacket. Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci rolled in and offered the evening’s top prize: an appliqué star t-shirt that caused an immediate frenzy. He was also overheard discussing plans to move to New York. Shopping gave way to dancing alongside the city’s lithe and nubile donning their resort best. A tropical shower did little to slow the momentum until the lure of after-hours drew the faithful across the street to Chez André.
