Art Basel Miami Beach Street Style Is A True Masterpiece

Wondering what to wear to an art fair? Wonder no more.

We’ve pulled some of our favorite looks from among hundreds snapped by photographers at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach and Miami Art Week, a days-long extravaganza of mega art fairs, exhibitions, sales, parties, jet-lagged gallerists chugging energy drinks, frantic scenesters in FOMO mode, Miley Cyrus in pasties and lots and lots of walking.

After the past week, we can safely conclude this: Anything goes. There are art dealers in basic black, socialites turning the sidewalks of South Beach into one giant walk-off, culture scribes in extravagantly patterned men’s suits and locals ready to party in bright colors and bold hemlines.

The rule, in other words, is to just go all in — whatever the look. After all, as Artnet News overheard among patrons at one VIP reception, “In Miami, these three-inch heels are considered flats.”

Who: Barbara Garcia
Where: On the street
What: Leather Zara shorts, a Loewe purse, Anton Heunis necklace, ASH sneakers and G-Star RAW
Why we love it: There are limited ways to do leather in Miami, even in December. This is just about the only one, so kudos for accuracy.

Street Style from Seoul to Shanghai: James Bent on His New Book, Asian Street …

It’s just past noon in early spring Seoul, the sun’s rays still weak with winter pallor. On the block stands So Young Kang, a vision of thrown-together school-girl chic, cool as can be in the whitewash: thin tartan scarf, wide-collared puffer, skinny jeans, well-worn Céline luggage tote. He doesn’t speak Korean, but photographer James Bent is there to snap her picture.

“See someone I like, and ask them or somehow communicate to them that I’d like a photograph,” says Bent matter-of-factly of his approach to street-style lensing, the efforts from which are now immortalized in his new book, Asian Street Fashion, which will be published in the U.S. this month by Thames Hudson. It’s a timely release: The fashion world’s eyes are trained on Tokyo this week, where Dior is unveiling its pre-fall 2015 collection.

The book dispels what many have come to expect of street style from the region: Absent here is Harajuku’s lollipop palette, the outré ensembles with fantastical flourishes that for a time defined Japanese—and by extension, continental—proclivities. “The most shocking outfits I see these days are in the West,” says Bent, referring to the feeding-frenzy of look-at-me dressing around New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks. “In Asia, I feel like style-conscious people are doing the inverse—a lot of people are responding to well-developed and mature fashion.” Indeed, logo-centric brands have been less popular in places like China of late: Asia’s increasingly discerning customer is, in turn, increasingly looking for refinement and taste over anything ostentatious or spotlight-hogging. Bent’s photographs show hundreds of examples of that search for the antidote to OTT style—just look at Yuiko in Tokyo, with her smart, mottled navy A-line trench, or Weisan Hsu in Taipei, wearing a demure adobe-tan skirt and blue blazer.

“All the cities I visited had a strong, modern fashion presence that I hadn’t entirely anticipated,” says Bent, who admits that his favorite metropolis on the continent is Seoul (“It’s a little underrated.”). Yet, collectively, he feels that there are more people who take fashion seriously in Asia—and not just because of the high population numbers of its countries. “In the West, I could generalize and say there are, of course, fashion sets, but there are also a whole lot of people happy to just wear jeans and trainers. In Asia, it feels like the interest in style is much greater, perhaps because of social pressure—and it moves fast. Sometimes overnight, it feels like the next thing has come along.”

Undral Gerelkhuu lives in Oakland, but she’s from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. As a freelance stylist, she works for everyone from individuals to department stores and little boutiques.When we spotted her, she was on Market Street on the way to meet a client.

She describes her style as “pop-culture influenced, and a grunge look with a ‘rockabetty’ finishing touch.” We love how she mixed a tough rock ‘n’ vibe with the sweet femininity of her lips and headscarf. She was dressed all in black, which she considers her comfort color. “There is a saying, ‘When you are in doubt, wear black!’ I like to joke that I am always in doubt.”

She finds menswear garments fun to feminize with accessories, and mainly shops at Urban Outfitters, HM and consignment stores, where she looks for “whatever I can find that is unique.”

Andy Bond’s new fashion chain fuels hope for High Street

  • Final name yet to be decided
  • Project led by former Asda chief Andy Bond
  • 50 stores will be launched in just two months
  • Stores set to compete with supermarket ranges

The biggest fashion chain launch for more than a decade will hit town centres next year when a team of retail heavyweights led by the former Asda chief Andy Bond opens dozens of stores.

The new chain, codenamed Project 50, will launch in July. The plan is to open 50 stores in just two months, backed by an initial £20 million from South African billionaire Christo Wiese, one of the world’s most powerful retailers.

The stores will aim to sell affordable fashion priced to compete with the supermarkets. The chain will cater for mothers and children and will offer both clothing basics and fashion. The final name has yet to be decided.

Smart move: Andy Bond helped to oversee the rapid expansion of Asda’s George clothing business

Property agent Savills has been appointed to lead the search for stores from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet. The first lease is expected to be signed within days with many others following in the coming weeks.

The plan will capitalise on the low cost of high street retail space which has hit rock bottom in recent years.

The company will be led by a team of retail executives with experience from across the sector. Bond ran Asda’s George clothing business during its rapid expansion phase and is now in charge of Wiese’s UK investment division. He is spearheading the Project 50 plan along with Adrian Mountford, who previously ran Sainsbury’s Tu clothing business and is a former Matalan board member.

They have also drafted in former Marks Spencer head of merchandising Cathy Haydon, as well as Mark Jackson, the long-serving finance director at Heal’s department store.

The company will have its headquarters in Watford, Hertfordshire.

The project represents a major vote of confidence in the beleaguered high street as the strategy depends on a renewed demand for access to local shops. They are targeting secondary high streets, many of which have been deserted by bigger shops in favour of out-of-town retail parks or shopping centres.

New look: The chain of shops will be a new addition to high streets up and down the country

A source said: ‘This is an ambitious project to create a new national chain of shops. The view is that the death of the high street has been overstated. It is just changing shape. A typical high street has BM Bargains and Tesco Express, but not a credible clothing shop.

‘A lot of secondary high streets in the UK are under-served by good quality clothing and family fashion. This will appeal to the value seeking mum.’

Robert Clark, senior partner at industry research group Retail Knowledge Bank, said: ‘There are risks to being the first mover, but others will be watching this strategy with great interest. The economics of the high street have changed in recent years and people are beginning to look again at the case for doing business there.

‘If you had done this ten years ago from a standing start it would have cost you dearly, but the cost of signing leases on shops has reduced significantly.

‘Local centres increasingly want to get away from the proliferation of betting shops and charity shops and to reintroduce some diversity to some of these secondary locations.’

Last week, the Government signalled that it is finally taking action to reduce the burden of business rates on the high street when it announced a review of the entire system.

We’re All The Same Outside: See 20 Years Of Mesmerizing Patterns In Street …

In the film, The Devil Wears Prada, Meryl Streep’s Oscar-nominated Anna Wintour surrogate gives her comparatively frumpy assistant, Anne Hathaway, a lesson in fashion freewill: it doesn’t exist for her. Streep’s character is able to trace the lineage of Hathaway’s choice in sweater that day back to a series of trends that she and other members of the high-end fashion world cognoscenti had a hand in starting. For the last 20 years, though, one photographer has been revealing how we also take our cues from what’s out on the street.

The Netherlands answer to Bill Cunningham, Hans Eijkelboom started photographing the emerging patterns of urban pedestrians back in 1993. His quest to capture uniformity as it unfolded brought him to bustling cities such as New York, Shanghai, Paris, and Amsterdam. Some of the most clear-cut cases of contagious fashions are documented in Eijkelboom’s book, People of the Twenty-First Century, which uses candid photos to show similarly dressed people in close proximity at a fixed point in time.

As the Guardian reports, Eijkelboom process involves secretly shooting on crowded blocks around large shopping centers. With a camera hanging around his neck looking inactive, he would actually take the pictures using a rigged-out trigger located in his pocket. Sneaky, but efficient. Although the images that come out of this exercise do indeed show off a herd mentality, they also do hint at an instinct for flair. Everybody captured here may be wearing some garment, or a combination of them, that appears very popular, but they also tend to put their own spin on it.

Have a look through more pictures from the series in the slides above.
