Art Basel transforms Miami into a huge cultural center the week of the exhibition. Because art buyers are linked to so many other industries, it is also a great time to explore Miami culture from shopping, dining, and real estate.
Luxury brands hosted exclusive parties across town. We attended the Perrier-Jouet opening night of its L'Eden Miami at Casa Faena. Casa Faena is located in the hottest newly developed neighborhood of Miami Beach, the Faena Art District. The invite-only event hosted by Vanity Fair allowed guests to sample the best cuvées from the French Champagne house. We toured some of the beautiful new development that is arriving to Miami as the real estate market continues to move ahead at full force here.

The project we are representing in the exclusive enclave of Bal Harbour celebrated its launch during Art Basel Miami. This was the perfect time to celebrate Oceana which is situated on 400 feet of pristine beachfront as the building is home to 2 Jeff Koons sculptures that residents will jointly own. Jeff Koons was personally at the launch to unveil the sculptures, Ballerina and Pluto & Proserpina, and give remarks about his works.
