Art Basel Miami Beach 2011: A Week of Fashion
season of Art Basel raged through the streets of Miami and South Beach and the
fashions, once again, were on another level.
The silhouettes were classic for
both men and women, but splashes of color seemed to pop everywhere we
looked. Black continued being the superior shade on the canvas of the artsy crowd,
but the added color of red as an accent over black seemed to be uniform. New
Yorkers were layered in fabrics of black leather, cotton and sheer, while
Parisians wore bright colors of blues, pinks and yellows. The color blocking
trend trickles over to fall, but the bold colors of spring are mixed up with
pales and grays.
Overall, it seemed like the fashion gods assisted with the weather
for Basel week, giving the crowd a chance to see a fantastic week of fashion in
