I do not know about everyone else, however, I am just now recuperating from the beautiful craziness that is Art Basel. Now that I’ve come up for air let’s talk recaps.
For those that haven’t seen the events, celebs, and artists parading all over your social media feed, Art Basel 2021 took place this past weekend in Miami. Believe it or not, I met a group of ppl visiting who had absolutely no idea that Art Basel was even taking place. No shade to them or anyone reading this who didn’t know. Anyway, let’s move on. There were tons of exhibits, panels, and parties, highlighting and celebrating artists from all around the world. Yet the art wasn’t the only site to see. Just as impressive and may be as important as the art its self were the venues. I’m taking some of the most sort-out & exclusive venues. Add sexy & luxurious to the description and you’ve got The Ritz Carlton South Beach!
This is where Roc Nation and Modern Luxury’s new multimedia platform, EDITION’s launch party took place. The VIP launch event featured a wide array of celebrities, cultural tastemakers, and influencers including Vic Mensa, Ray J, Dreamdoll, Dez Bryant, Romeo Okwara, Tafia, and more. Roc Nation superstar Dixson wowed guests with an incredibly electrifying performance. Maeta followed with an equally beautiful soulful set that captivated the crowd. D’USSE was on deck as the official drink sponsor. They provided party-goers with specialty cocktails throughout the entire night. Also guests, including myself, got to experience complimentary manicures from the Bernadette Thompson Collection.
Lastly, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the inaugural issue featuring cover superstar, the incomparable and beautiful Issa Rae. This first issue serves as a very limited edition coffee table book, free of ads and full of exclusively, stunningly curated content. So excited to see what else this new multimedia platform has in store. Be sure to follow Edition on IG @editionmodlux
