FRONT RUNNER A sunbathing Santa and six beachgoers who look nothing like elves or reindeer pose for a cameraman with a good sense of irony in Miami, circa 1956.
A ChristmAs tAn
Imagine spending the Fourth of July in a North Face coat shivering in front of a fireplace.... That’s the backward feeling of Christmas in Miami. There’s no snow—the last time it snowed here was 1977. There are no open fires, no heavy coats or gloves, barely any Christmas carols, and definitely no Jack Frost. No hot chocolate, no chestnuts. No eggnog, either—too much calorie-heavy cream. But that doesn’t mean Miamians don’t get into the holiday spirit. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Miamians have invented their own holiday traditions—with or without the freezing weather. Take that Santa Claus (above), for instance—totally barefoot in sand on South Beach instead of knee-deep in snow on the North Pole. We still decorate our homes and lawns, but the candy canes, reindeer, and Santa seem a bit awkwardly displaced. Instead of early-evening treks to a tree farm to chop down that perfect pine, we spend a day with the family at Santa’s Enchanted Forest, the three-month, holidaythemed carnival complete with rides, games, and, of course, funnel cakes
and cotton candy. Now that’s a Miami tradition. Then, there’s the nationally televised Christmas Day Heat game. This year, the team will take on the New Orleans Pelicans at AmericanAirlines Arena (the Heat are 9-2 on December 25 games; 4-0 at home). There’s also the Y100 Jingle Ball, featuring The Weeknd; the Miami City Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker; the billboards littering I-95 for The Christmas Place (“South Florida’s largest holiday store!”); office holiday parties; and though it’s not the same as strolling through Bloomingdale’s on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, nothing feels better than driving across one of Miami’s causeways while jingling to the hits on “Holly,” SiriusXM’s annual all-holiday-music channel. Traffic, that’s another Miami holiday tradition as millions of tourists fly into town for sun and fun. In fact, in Miami, on the same day you are unwrapping Christmas presents, you could be paddleboarding on the bay. Not a bad gift at all. OD

FRONT RUNNER A view of the iconic Delano pool after dark; the property in the 1950s; Philippe Starck–designed “vignettes” in the Delano orchard; Jamie Foxx playing the hotel’s Lucite piano in 2007.
two decades later, the Delano is still as happening, ageless, and quintessentially MiaMi as it was when it opened on south Beach in 1995. by carla torres If you want to truly experience Miami, pick a seat—any seat—in the Delano’s soaring lobby, and sooner or later (although sooner is more likely the case) you’re bound to see one celebrity or another materialize through the billowing, floor-to-ceiling sheer white curtains. Billed as “the hotel that changed South Beach,” the Delano is where Jamie Foxx serenaded guests by personifying Ray Charles on a Lucite grand piano for his 40th birthday. It’s where songstress Madonna launched her 12th album, the controversial MDMA, in the very same place she was once part owner (RIP Blue Door). In the 20 years since the “Godfather of Nightlife,” hotelier Ian Schrager, made his mark on Miami Beach with the whimsically edgy yet timelessly elegant Delano, the boutique hotel has been a beacon of inspiration for all others succeeding it. But it’s not the revolving and never-ending rosters of A-listers and glitterati that might be enjoying a romantic dinner with their
current supermodel girlfriend at Bianca (Leonardo DiCaprio), playing basketball with the staff on a makeshift court during the filming of Out of Sight (George Clooney), enjoying a classic cocktail at Rose Bar (Calvin Klein), launching their latest book, Decoded ( Jay Z), or popping bottles at underground digs FDR (Usher) that make the Art Deco fixture iconic. It’s the fact that since its debut in December of 1995, the property—originally built in 1947, designed and curated by French visionary Philippe Starck, and brought to life by the works of Man Ray and Salvador Dali (to name a few)—has become a wonderland of fun, glitz, and glamour for both tourists and locals alike who can’t get enough of Miami’s lifestyle. And it’s why, on its 20th year, the Delano continues to be the celeb-magnet it never stopped being. Happy anniversary! 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-6722000; morganshotelgroup.com OD

Letter from the editor-in-Chief
There is no beTTer Time To be in miami than December. The saying “It’s the
most wonderful time of the year” usually applies to cold weather, snow, and specifically the holidays, but for Miami, all of December is a holiday. It starts the first week, when the world’s most prestigious art galleries show off their wares at Art Basel. Of course, the week also includes celebrity performances, private über-exclusive parties, sold-out hotels, jam-packed restaurants, and, as always, perfect 75-degree beach weather. It is the most wonderful time of the year. As tourists and snowbirds pour into our beautiful city, there’s so much to take in, and we have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for. Countless new buildings rose in 2015, and Miami’s growth from Brickell to South Beach and beyond made—and continues to make!—national headlines. We continue to tackle rising sea levels, as neighborhoods like Sunset Harbor, which once experienced daily flooding—even on days when it didn’t rain—now have sophisticated drainage systems keeping the streets dry and attracting interested watchdogs from around the world. This past year we welcomed new restaurants offering world-class eats, farm-to-table yummies, and groundbreaking techniques, all of which have
made Miami a must-try on foodies’ bucket lists. But first and foremost, art is on our mind. It’s why we teamed up with actress, model, mom, and artist Katie Holmes for our year-end issue. When she’s not lighting up the small screen on Ray Donovan or walking the red carpets at Hollywood premieres, such as for her recent film Touched with Fire, she’s painting and creating. If you want to see some of her work, her very active @KatieHolmes212 account on Instagram is an up-close-and-personal display of her talents. Lastly, check out our “Only in Miami” story if you really want to get a sense for the amazing things you can do in this town. I’m not talking Jet Skis and surfing (although that doesn’t sound so bad either), but rather gold-flaked martinis and diamond earrings upon check-in at your hotel. And for a look inside a house with art that rivals that of any museum, you’ll want to have a peek at our “Accent on Art” profile of Petra and Stephen Levin, who have quietly amassed one of the most extraordinary art collections in the country. They opened up their home exclusively to Ocean Drive. Happy holidays, and enjoy your time in our beautiful city.

If there’s a word that best sums up december, It’s “festIve.”
With so many holiday soirées and lively social events, the celebrations and libations seemingly never end this time of year—especially for Miamians, who have a lot more to celebrate during December than the typical holiday parties. That’s because the world’s elite once again descend on our velvety shores in their private jets to attend Art Basel in Miami Beach, the premier art fair on this side of the Western hemisphere. This year’s Basel, the 14th installment, will undoubtedly bring a plethora of talent like we’ve never seen before. December is also the climax of our high season, which means the Magic City will experience a tremendous influx of snowbirds eager to escape the cold and change from winter coats into winter swimsuits. Who can blame them? There’s nothing better than lounging on the beach or poolside in the middle of December—and Miami’s “winter weather” is a guaranteed luxury. Whether you’re just visiting or are a Miami denizen, our
“Up All Night” feature story will provide you with a list of the best nightlife hangouts—places that everyone should experience. Be sure to check out all of them (or at least try). In this issue, we’re also thrilled to have the effortlessly stunning and multitalented Katie Holmes on our cover. Holmes, who is adding “director” to her long résumé, is a self-proclaimed “wannabe artist.” She is also the epitome of über-chic-meets-down-to-earth, and we’re excited to reveal that side of her in Ocean Drive. While December certainly brings a flurry of celebratory happenings—culminating with New Year’s Eve bashes that make the rest of the world jealous—we Miamians well know that the party never truly stops. I hope to see you around and toast one your way….

...without whom this issue would not have been possible
roByn a. Friedman
// December 2015
Creative director, editor, and writer Ray Rogers is a frequent contributor to Ocean Drive, Billboard, and People. He’s also the proud coparent of four cuddly cats and two chic bunnies that are social media stars (follow them on Instagram @catnipandcarrots; they’re a pretty big deal). In this issue, Rogers interviews Latin music sensation Juanes for “Hottest Ticket.”
A Miami native, Justin Namon majored in fine art at the University of Miami. In 2013, he cofounded Ra-Haus Fotografie along with his wife, Elizabeth Renfrow. Together they have a combined 20-plus years experience with a passion and eternal love for the 305. Namon photographed the home of Stephen and Petra Levin for this issue’s “Accent on Art” feature.
What was one of the most interesting things you discovered while interviewing Juanes? I loved hearing about his passion for putting forth love into the world, and the need to replace hate with love. His commitment to social justice and a peaceful planet is truly inspiring. Latin music is clearly popular in Miami but still growing elsewhere in the US. To people who aren’t yet fans of Juanes’s music, why should they be? And what song would instantly get stuck in their heads? “Loco de Amor,” the title track of his last album, is a great way into Juanes’s incredible body of work—it’s so catchy, effervescent, and joy-inducing.
What most impressed you about the Levins’s home? I wasn’t sure if I was at an art exhibit or a residence at first. The range of artists, from Banksy to Helmut Newton to the infamous Ai Weiwei, was astounding. I felt compelled to walk around the whole space as a viewer before I even thought of picking up my camera. If you could hold a photo shoot anywhere in Miami what would be your fantasy location? The Miami Marine Stadium, an architectural wonder created by Cuban architect Hilario Candela. It was declared an unsafe structure after Hurricane Andrew, but since has become a breeding ground for like-minded artistic expression.
Award-winning freelance writer Robyn A. Friedman is a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal and has also written for Unique Homes, newhomesource .com, hotelnewsnow.com, the Robb Report, the New York Post, and more. In this issue’s “Gold Coast Report,” she spotlights Palazzo Del Sol.
Hunter BraitHwaite journalist Memphis-based writer Hunter Braithwaite was the founding editor of The Miami Rail, a quarterly publication devoted to contemporary art and culture. During a hiatus from school, he began writing for National Geographic’s travel books department. Since then he has lived in Shanghai and Miami. He freelances for a variety of publications, including Modern Painters, for which he is a contributing editor. In this issue, he covers this month’s Art Basel in Miami Beach. You’ve covered Art Basel for several years for many publications. What do you always look forward to about the fair? The Survey section is back, which means a lot more museum-quality displays at the convention center. Elsewhere, I’m excited for Gallery Diet’s new home on the border of Little Haiti and Little River, and NADA’s move down to the Fontainebleau. Are there any exhibits, events, or artists you’re particularly excited to see? Nari Ward at PAMM is going to be great. Also, I want to head up to NSU Fort Lauderdale to see the Lee Miller show. After the shows and events, where do you go to hang with the cool, true, Art Basel–appreciating crowd? The Cultivist is a brand-new VIP program that has a lot of great events for members. I’ve got that planned, and the Deuce.
What makes Fisher Island special? It’s a private sanctuary that allows you the choice to disconnect from the world and just enjoy the solitude and luxury surrounding you, or to take a short ferry ride to the mainland to enjoy the glitz and glamour of South Beach. It’s really the best of all possible worlds. If you were buying in to Palazzo Del Sol, what elements of the property would most appeal to you? I’m an avid tennis player, and Fisher Island has four different surfaces to play on, including red clay and grass. So that would be exciting for me [and other tennis players] because I could play the Grand Slam [events] in one location!

Style tastemaker “What makes us most proud is we have managed to create a very recognizable style,” says Stefano Gabbana (far right), here with Domenico Dolce (left, in glasses).
La DoLce Vita
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana celebrate three decades of fashion, femininity, and mediterranean flare. by bryn kenny When Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana opened their design studio in Milan in the early ’80s, they placed a sign out front that read, simply: Dolce & Gabbana. Today, 30 years after debuting their first collection, those two last names are known around the world, with wares spanning from leather goods to beauty products to jewelry. “What makes us most proud is the fact that we have managed to create a very recognizable style,” says Gabbana, who originally studied graphic design before teaming up with Dolce, continued on page 128
STYLE Tastemaker BY THE SEA
the son of a Sicilian tailor. “I’ll notice that a person might not even be wearing Dolce & Gabbana clothes, but their style is indeed Dolce & Gabbana.” Without a doubt, Dolce & Gabbana’s distinct DNA, paired with an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship, has served to keep the brand both relevant and recognizable over the years. “We strive to create a personal, special, and intimate experience for our customers,” says Dolce. “Our level of quality and attention to detail has become synonymous with the brand.” And this attention to detail—from
infinitely exquisite embroideries to delicate lace accents—goes beyond the needle and thread. In 2013, the designers began serving as creative directors for their ad campaigns, with Dolce behind the lens. “Becoming inspired, creating a sketch, deciding a mood or feeling, and then seeing it all come together when we personally shoot our campaign, it felt like things had come full circle,” Dolce says of the experience. As for the next 30 years? The duo’s aspirations are still rather simple, according to Dolce. “We just want to keep working, and to continue doing what we love and create—hopefully— beautiful things.” Molto bene. OD

In the spring of 2016, Dolce & Gabbana will join the likes of Burberry, Dior, and Givenchy by unveiling its new boutique in Miami’s sought after Design District. A quick cab ride from the heart of South Beach, the now vibrant area has quickly become an epicenter of innovation,
merging elements of design, fashion, art, and architecture, so it’s no surprise the trendsetting brand is staking its claim. The D&G store will call places like the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami its “neighbor,” no doubt fitting in amidst the cutting edge galleries, hip restaurants, and
countless boutiques that already call the Design District home. And, while Dolce & Gabbana has yet to reveal specific plans for its new boutique, the space will no doubt infuse the area with its particular brand of Italian glamour. 701 S. Miami Ave., Miami; dolcegabbana.com

Bold Sicilian prints are this season’s must haves in Dolce & Gabbana’s Cruise 2016 collection.
When Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana envisioned the first Sicily bag in 2009, their goal was to design a handbag that would become a timeless signature of Dolce & Gabbana. Six years later, they’ve not only succeeded, but the Sicily has become one of the brand’s hottest items in Miami, regularly outselling other styles in the must-have shade of powder pink. Inspired by more austere, classic styles, the designers said they wanted to create a “structured” look that could be employed as a handbag or a shoulder bag, with an adjustable, removable shoulder strap. The Sicily bag—which is made from sumptuous leather, features gold hardware, and can take up to five hours to make—is re-envisioned each season in exclusive materials and colors.

In 1919, Hugo Junkers presented the world’s ﬁrst all-metal commercial aircraft. It was made using the aircraft aluminum alloy discovered by Alfred Wilm in 1906. In 1950, RIMOWA presented its suitcase with the unmistakable grooved design made of the same material – at the time, it was the lightest suitcase in the world. RIMOWA was a real pioneer in the sector, starting the trend for lightweight luggage back then. RIMOWA STORE MIAMI: 115 NE 40TH STREET PHONE: 305-576-2081

When he arrived in Miami from his native Medellín, Colombia, in 2000, Latin rocker Juanes “didn’t speak a word of English,” he tells Ocean Drive. “That was a very tough moment for me. I didn’t have a car; I didn’t have money; I was scared about my future.” What a difference 15 years can make. Now the Key Biscayne resident is the hottest thing in Latin music, with more than 16 million albums sold. Speaking from his newly built recording studio in Doral, where his two Grammys and 20 Latin Grammys are proudly positioned in the lounge, Juanes (full name: Juan Esteban Aristizabal Vasquez), 43, is thrilled to call the Magic City home. “I just love the weather, and the vibe of the city is super cool,” he says, adding that being surrounded by the sizable Colombian expat community means he never feels too far from his native land. “You can find anything you want here. If you want to spend your time with the family, you can be very relaxed and safe. You can visit a museum or go to a big concert.” cOntinueD On page 154

the big guys in the government. I used to have a metal band and we wrote songs about social problems—what we were seeing and feeling. That has stayed with me to this day. I care about people. When I was in Medellín, I decided to dedicate my life to making music. In some way, music saved my life. I would not be here otherwise.” Close to 30 years later, Juanes is using his music to send a message of peace. He recently performed for the pope during the pontiff’s US visit, and earlier this year he sang at the United Nations for World Humanitarian Day. “For me, the message is in the songs, and what I’m saying is we need love in this world,” Juanes says. “We need to change hate to love, and we have to see each other as one family and stay together in this to build a better world for our children.” Juanes performs on December 4 at AmericanAirlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; ticketmaster.com OD

I love that place… oh, the food. The best sushi rolls ever! Oh, please, my God, it’s like mi casa, my house.” Downtime with the kiDs: “When I’m in town,
I take my kids [daughters Luna, 12, and Paloma, 10, and son Dante, 6] to school in the morning. I like to take my daughters to the movies in Coconut Grove; there is a small mall called Coco Walk.” And it’s a family affair at his studio, where he jams with his kids when not creating his global anthems. “My two little girls sing and play piano really well, and my boy loves taking drum lessons.” staying fit: “I like to ride bicycles, to run on the
streets, and I love the sea. I love this city so much!”

Or stage one, if you’re a global superstar. Juanes will be at AmericanAirlines Arena on December 4, performing a mix of tracks from his seven-album solo career. The socially conscious rocker switched things up stylistically on his most recent album, 2014’s Loco de Amor, a joyous collection of upbeat love songs. He has also branched out, incorporating more electronic dance textures, so expect to get on your feet at this live date. “I love electronic music, and I had an opportunity to work with [DJ and Miami resident] Cedric Gervais, and he’s going to perform with me in Miami,” Juanes says. “Performing, for me, is a spiritual connection. I am a shy person, but I just feel so connected with what I’m performing. For me, it’s like a religion.” Juanes first understood music’s transformative power while living in Medellín in the ’80s. “It was the worst time for my city,” he says. “I was there during the war against the mafia and
Balancing the ScaleS
MiaMi gallerist Anthony spinello opens up about the local art scene, art basel, and working as a feMinist in the Male-doMinated art world. by becky randel
“There is an incredible imbalance of female to male artists being represented in art fairs and in galleries,” says Anthony Spinello, who mounts the fourth installment of his exhibition “Littlest Sister” at his new gallery space in Little River.
Tell us about the fourth installment of your all-Miami art show “Littlest Sister.” Anthony Spinello: We created “Littlest Sister” in 2007, initially as a response to the influx of people who were coming into Miami but who weren’t coming for the local art scene. So the question was: How do I get these people to my gallery? This year you decided to make the show all female. Why? AS: It’s more of an observation and response. There is an incredible imbalance of female to male artists being represented in art fairs and in galleries. This is a macro problem; it’s across the board within the arts. I decided, well, I have this art fair, then why don’t I produce the first all-female art fair? Sofia Bastidas: Everyone seems to have such a nice response, like “Yes, of course I want to take part in this!” And it feels like community. A male gallerist launching an all-female show is not a common occurrence. Do you consider yourself a feminist? Cara Despain: Yes! (To Anthony) I answered for you. He’s that much of a feminist. AS: I’ve been told by a few feminists that I am a feminist. cOntinueD On pAge 158

Step into the heart of Miami’s young, buzzing art world and inevitably you’ll bump into 32-year-old gallerist Anthony Spinello, who was named one of 15 curators to watch in 2015 by Artslant. Last year his gallery, Spinello Projects, debuted the highly acclaimed all-female performance platform “Auto Body” during Miami Art Week. And this year he’s going one step further, transforming his well-received “Littlest Sister” show into an all-female “faux art fair.” He’ll also be celebrating his gallery’s 10th anniversary with the exhibition “Full Moon” while unveiling his new 10,000-square-foot space in Little River. Spinello, along with artist Cara Despain (who will show work as part of “Littlest Sister” and who just had a piece acquired by the Rubell Family Collection) and “Littlest Sister” director Sofia Bastidas, chatted with Ocean Drive about the intricacies of the Miami art scene and the gender imbalance in the art world.

Do you think women collectors will be more inclined to support it? CD: I hope they’re as interested as they are in collecting art done by men. The problem with an all-female show is that it sets it apart, like, we don’t need a special category. But at the same time, to right the balance, people like Anthony need to exist. “Littlest Sister” has lots of additional components; can you outline them? AS: We are inviting women-led projects to be in a sector of the fair called Feature, such as Vanity Projects, Design Pub, Sweat Records, and Klang Box.... Sofia also brought up the idea to create a symposium, which is now called Platform. SB: Platform is an all-women symposium made up of the most influential women artists, cultural producers, curators, and developers from Miami who are making change here. We have a moderator from outside Miami, which gives Platform another level of targeting global issues as opposed to just local.
It’s interesting timing considering the current Hollywood wage-gap controversy. CD: What’s annoying is the fu**ing wage gap, not people having to bring it up. It’s a problem in all of the arts. Even somebody like Cindy Sherman— who is at the top—is still not paid the same as her male counterparts. AS: Even at my gallery, the ratio of female to male artists is imbalanced, and part of doing these exhibitions is for me to acknowledge this, and within this process I’m meeting so many incredible artists. My goal is to have an equal roster—50 percent male, 50 percent female. You’re in the process of moving your gallery from Wynwood to the Little River neighborhood. Why? AS: My lease was up, and it was just a matter of finding the space that would allow us to grow. I met an incredible woman named Avra Jain, who is 50 percent owner of this building. She is a big promoter of artists; she is a visionary. Let’s talk about the general art scene in continued on page 160

Miami. How would you characterize what’s happening right now? AS: I find the scene to be very active and there are a lot of happenings—one-night events. There are a lot of artist-run spaces popping up; there are a lot of artist-run initiatives in general here. CD: Miami is a DIY city, and I hope it doesn’t change. I think that when you have an art scene that starts out as a midsized thing and there’s not as much institutional or gallery support, then you do your own thing, and Miami has done that so well. AS: I started my gallery at 22, and it definitely provided me, and allowed me, the space to experiment and to make mistakes without the pressure of a New York—or, say, the rents of New York. Miami is a unique landscape. Everyone wants to compare Miami to New York or LA and it’s really its own thing. Miami allows young creatives to explore the possibilities. Anthony, this is your gallery’s 10th anniversary; what changes have you seen over the last decade? AS: I learn something every day, and I usually learn from my artists. They have been my biggest teachers. I think that’s the goal—to continue learning, continue pushing, continue doing. 7221 nw second ave., miami; spinelloprojects.com OD

WHAT TO EXPECT DOMESTICALLY: in addition to having a strong asian infuence, the miami beach fair will represent a meeting of the minds, with a number of trends evident, such as the rising recognition of female artists, a return to the methodical application of abstraction, more minimalism, and nouveau réalisme, as seen in switzerland.

Martha Friedman’s poured-rubber sculptures take their cues from the four humors—blood (red), phlegm (white), and yellow and black bile.
Artist Martha FriedMan’s exhibit “Pore” At Locust Projects is more thAn A Lesson in AnAtomy. by hunter braithwaite
Until the Age of Enlightenment, Western medicine held that four liquids, or humors, governed the human organism from within. Blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile existed in delicate balance, and any malady was attributed to a deficit or surplus of one or the other. Not necessarily the primer you thought necessary for an Art Basel show—especially in the Miami Design District—but this is Martha Friedman. The Brooklyn-based sculptor is known for distorting the body (human and otherwise) to highlight its “vulnerability and permeability.” For her solo exhibition, “Pore” at Locust Projects, she goes medieval, devoting the gallery to the four humors. Friedman is dividing the space into quadrants using a modern form of alchemy: Over a thousand pounds of liquid rubber is poured out, allowed to dry into four solid “skins,” and then flayed from the floor and suspended from the ceiling on clamps. The color of each corresponds to a humor, ranging from the milky off-white of phlegm to the squid-inky depths of the black bile. “I was looking at a lot of medical books, seeing which colors happen
within the body,” Friedman says. In her process, the artist channels the work of Eva Hesse and Lynda Benglis, two artists known for corporeal sculptures that dovetailed with feminist thought. (It’s worth mentioning that this is the first time Locust Projects has shown a female artist during Basel since 2009.) Activating the exhibition is former Merce Cunningham dancer Silas Riener, who will perform a series of four dances set to choreographer George Balanchine’s landmark ballet The Four Temperaments while wearing special costumes designed by Friedman to match the look and feel of each humor. Though the sculptures could be props for a late-night Troma film, Riener’s dance brings a level of contemplative exterior movement to the evocatively titled show’s subcutaneous leakages. Says Friedman, “There’s a type of dignity that [Riener] brings to it.” Performances will be held when the exhibition opens, and throughout the week of Art Basel in Miami Beach. “Pore” is on display through January 2016 at 3852 N.

Culture thought leader
Rock the house
Rock star. CEO. Game-changer. Those were just a few of the superlatives that trustees of the Pérez Art Museum Miami used to describe their new director, Franklin Sirmans, as he came on board in October. That kind of hype is expected for a new hire, especially in light of the museum’s hopes of living up to its billing as Miami’s flagship cultural institution. Yet even the most cynical observer would have to concede that Sirmans is an impressive choice to helm PAMM. Arriving from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where he was department head and curator of contemporary art, Sirmans has forged a buzzy curatorial track record extending to Houston’s Menil Collection and New Orleans’s Prospect biennial. Equally at ease discussing ’80s Neo-Expressionism and ’80s rap continued on page 166
“I’m really looking forward... to having people think about the Pérez as a focal point and obvious place for dialogue,” says Franklin Sirmans, here with the Firelei Báez installation at PAMM.

Franklin Sirmans selects his top three albums that inspired his groundbreaking exhibit, “One Planet Under A Groove.” One hardly needs to strain these days to fnd connections between contemporary art and hip-hop—Jay Z shooting a video with performance-art legend Marina Abramovic, or Pharrell Williams collaborating on sculptures with expat Miamian Daniel Arsham, for example. In 2002, however, when Franklin Sirmans cocurated the trendsetting “One Planet Under A Groove: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art” at the Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York, those aesthetic links were less conspicuous. What hasn’t changed over the passing years is Sirmans’s passion for the music that inspired that exhibi-

tion. Below are a few of his favorites, all of which ran through his head as he assembled that pioneering show: 1. One For All, Brand Nubian (1990)
“It’s super personal because I was there when it was being made—‘there’ in the sense of knowing all those guys. I grew up around them. It’s a classic suburbia-meets-the-heart-of-the-city record. But you also have this intense post–Public Enemy politicization that gets wrapped up into it. And religion comes into play. Yet it’s an all-around fun album at the same time.”
2. Criminal Minded, Boogie Down Productions (1987) and 3. Paid In Full, Eric B. and Rakim (1987) “It’s hard for me to think of these two records apart from one another in time. These two are pure poetry. They make you understand that there’s a foundational history to not just the music, but to the writing, that goes much deeper than what people think about ‘early’ rap. [KRS-One and Rakim] are both absolute wordsmiths. At the same time, they’re able to couch humor in some serious lyrics.”

music, Sirmans seems like a good fit for a city whose art scene—as well as its culture at large— hops between creative styles. “This transitional moment with the building, and with the people behind it, is a prime opportunity to consider the ways in which a museum can function,” says Sirmans. “I’m really looking forward to leading that discussion, to having people think about the Pérez as a focal point and obvious place for dialogue. Having been part of the conversation around art and culture in Los Angeles, I understand what that can mean to a city.” As for specific shows he’s planning for 2016, he’s keeping his aesthetic cards close to his vest—and understandably so, given the intense lobbying he’s subject to. Still, Sirmans says local talent will remain a key component of the exhibited mix. “There are a lot of amazing artists on the ground here,” he says. “Everybody knows about Miami because of Art Basel, but there’s so much more going on here. The opportunity is there now to think about things, curatorially, in a way my predecessors were not able to. I’m looking to build upon the foundation already set, while of course expanding our opportunity to get more people involved.… I can’t overstate how excited I am about all of this.” 1103 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, 305375-3000; pamm.org OD

A New Beginning
MiaMi art Doyenne NiNa JohNsoN-Milews i opens her Gallery Diet in little river. by hunter braithwaite Nina Johnson-Milewski’s parents didn’t share her early passion for contemporary art, but they nurtured it when she was a high school student by driving her from their Kendall home up to Wynwood so she could intern with veteran dealer Bernice Steinbaum. That was how, while still a teenager, Johnson-Milewski discovered the business side of art—“facilitating it rather
than making it,” she says. But it was a summer school trip to Paris that crystallized her idea of what an art gallery could be. During a visit to a gallery, a busy dealer took the time to give the group of high schoolers a tour. “As a kid, that kind of engagement really changes the way you perceive art in general,” says Johnson-Milewski. “It was one of the first times I really felt that the art gallery wasn’t
just a commercial space; it was a community space, an educational space—a connective space.” After a few years in Boston, where she studied simultaneously at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University, Johnson-Milewski returned to Miami, this time with artist Daniel Milewski, whom she would later marry. (Today they have two
sons: 1-year-old Lee and newborn Cy.) Johnson-Milewski opened Gallery Diet in 2007. For the next eight years, it would remain on the corner of NW 23rd Street and Second Avenue in Wynwood, where it was known for its eyeblistering white floor and a program that gave both local and international artists a chance to experiment. “I’ve always built my program intuitively, responding to our local climate,” says the gallerist, “but also listening to the suggestions of the artists I’ve worked with in the past.” The resulting growth was organic and communal, with the gallery’s curatorial choices shared by curators like Jarrett Earnest and James Cope as well as artists such as Joshua Abelow. And while the art is contemporary, it’s often intergenerational. Take 85-year-old ceramicist Betty Woodman, whose brightly
glazed work has been shown numerous times. Gallery Diet is also noted for its penchant for difficult installations, as in Nicolas Lobo’s acclaimed 2014 show “Bad Soda/Soft Drunk.” The artist (whom Johnson-Milewski represents) not only filled the gallery with a series of sculptures made of homemade napalm and Play-Doh, but he refloored the entire space with unopened packages of an expired energy drink. When Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) acquired one of Lobo’s sculptures, the energy drinks came with it. During those years, Gallery Diet’s programming was a bellwether for a changing Miami. A home to locals such as Bhakti Baxter and designer Emmett Moore, as well as transplants like Christy Gast, the gallery also showcased work by internationally known figures, such as performance continued on page 170

BASEL PICKS Nina Johnson-Milewski recommends these upcoming events at Art Basel in Miami Beach.
“oneoftherewardingthingsaboutmiamiisthis constantinfluxofnewpeople.” —nina johnson-milewski artist Clifford Owens and sculptor Ohad Meromi. For Johnson-Milewski, this dialogue between locals and visitors is what defines Miami. “One of the really rewarding things about being here is this constant influx of new people,” she says. “They bring a new way of thinking and a broadening of horizons.” In 2011, Johnson-Milewski’s own horizons began to broaden. On the occasion of an exhibition of paintings by Nathlie Provosty, the artist’s partner, Phong Bui, spoke at Daniel Milewski’s popular Wynwood coffee shop/bar, Lester’s. The subject was Bui’s influential art publication, the brooklynrail. “Who knows?” he laughed. “Maybe one day there will be a miamirail.” JohnsonMilewski didn’t think it was a joke and asked the Knight Foundation for seed money. The contemporary-art quarterly was launched in June 2012. Traditionally, a commercial gallerist wouldn’t also publish an art magazine, but Miami
isn’t a traditional town. It’s a place of collaboration and blurred boundaries. JohnsonMilewski is a founding member of PAMM’s Core Creative, a sustaining membership group, as well as ICA Miami’s similarly minded NEXT Committee. “Overall, I see partnering with our local institutions as critical to everyone’s success,” she says. “Culture is a symbiotic network of individuals, institutions, and capital.” But as Miami’s cultural stature skyrocketed, so did rents in Gallery Diet’s longtime home. One by one, long-standing Wynwood galleries moved away—David Castillo to Lincoln Road, Fredric Snitzer to Downtown. Johnson-Milewski was one of the last to go, heading north to a building she purchased on the border of Little Haiti and Little River. She sees the move as inevitable, a necessary lesson in how Miami develops. “I’m not somebody who thinks that neighborhoods evolving to the point where gal-
leries no longer belong there is a bad thing,” she says. “It’s part of the natural progress of a city…. If culture wants a place in a landscape that evolves as rapidly as it does in Miami, we must be fully invested in the neighborhoods we helped create.” Her new space, designed by the New York architectural firm Charlap Hyman & Herrero, is spread over a fourbuilding compound. The main gallery—which opened in November with the Nicolas Lobo exhibit “A Modulor Broth”—is an intimate, humanscaled white cube placed within the raw remains of a 1940s-era structure. There is also a garden, where additional programming will take place, as well as a residence for artists, which can also accommodate social events. The compound represents a new development not just for Gallery Diet but for art in Miami: a move toward the social, the immersive, the lived—a connective space. 6315 nwsecondave.,miami,305571-2288;gallerydiet.com OD

Keep Calm and Yogart on
Five years in, the yoga-meets-art-meets-music phenomenon downward dogs over to the design district’s palm court. by carla torres From group practices during Art Basel and South Beach Wine & Food Festival to the ever-colorful Wynwood Walls and now the Design District’s luxurious Palm Court, YogArt has stretched its biannual, weekendsonly schedule to a once-a-month manifestation. YogArt, a fun-filled afternoon that includes an outdoor yoga practice, plus live music, speakers, art, and healthy salubrious eats and drinks, also helps raise money for DASH (dashschool.org), the architecture and design high school located in the Design District. Its trio of founders—local philanthropist Arlene Chaplin, founder and director of the SOBEWFF and VP of Corporate Communications and National Events Director for Southern Wine and Spirits of America Lee Brian Schrager, and Miami’s most sought after yogi, Dawn B. Feinberg—let us in on all the details. How did you three connect and launch YogArt? Arlene Chaplin: My husband was given yoga classes for his 55th birthday and I’d never done yoga before. On the day of his actual birthday, he said,
“Arlene, I am going to take the day off from work and we’ll do yoga together,” and we asked Dawn to do it with us at our house. After the class, he said, “This is really great, honey, but this is going to be your gift of yoga.” And I fell in love with Dawn and with yoga ever since. Lee Brian Schrager: Then Arlene did the same thing and gave me 10 sessions of yoga [with Dawn] for my 50th birthday and that’s really how it started. Interesting enough, it was the first time I had ever done exercise. I don’t go to the gym, so it was the beginning of getting me on a healthier track. Did you anticipate the event would grow to this magnitude or even go on past the first year? LS: This will be the fifth [year] for Basel, four for SOBEWFF, and first for the Design District—which I don’t think any of us anticipated. I think why this has worked all these years is that we all bring something from all walks of life that is very different to the table. We also couldn’t have done it without our sponsors who support us. People like Craig Robins and the District, Wynwood Walls, Karla Dascal and The Sacred Space, Rock Angel continued on page 174

(who is using the YogArt series to launch their new and sister line, Whispering Angel), and the upcoming White Lotus. why the Miami design district? aC: Craig Robins was actually one of the first people we talked to when we were going to do YogArt during Art Basel because he is a personal friend of all of us. dawn Feinberg: And I teach Craig! Music is a big component of Yogart. what’s the plan now that it’s once a month? dF: We had New World Symphony for the first one and Afrobeta for the second, and for the Art Basel edition it’s DJ Immortal, featuring a live violinist. The music and vibe will change each time. ls: We want to embrace as many as possible and give people the opportunity to be part of it, assuming that they are in sync with the way Dawn does the class. and there are also speakers at every event. aC: We like to introduce a new element and last year we had Jessica Goldman speaking about her walls. One [speaker] was Jason Rubell, who shared how he feels about art and what Art Basel has brought to South Florida. We also had Craig and Tom Collins come and speak. ls: And don’t forget about the rabbi the first year. How did that happen? aC: I asked him and he came and spoke about how yoga was in the bible. I think that’s why we, and the community, loved it. ls: [The community] embraced us. There are a lot of people doing yoga but what we do is very different. We don’t call it sessions; we really call them experiences. It’s a lifestyle. how do you think the yoga and art communities in Miami have evolved since Yogart? dF: Our first year at Wynwood Walls was big, but by the second
year, there were no more shoe factories anymore—they were all art galleries. aC: People were running around going to cocktail parties and art gallery openings. ls: And stressing. Our first year at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel was fantastic and we could never reproduce that again, but it was moving to Wynwood during Basel that really gave us that perfect setting. We’re not in the studio—we are in one of the most fantastic art settings in the country, if not the world, with the graffiti murals. aC: People are more relaxed now. They can take a much-needed breather during the busiest weekends of the year. what has been your most memorable Yogart moment to date? ls: The rain last year. There was something very special about it. And people stayed; that’s how devoted they were. And with Dawn singing— I’m not an overly spiritual person but when you put it all together in a great backdrop, it’s magical. aC: When the class is over and you’re in savasana and everybody is holding hands, I feel like you’ve really made new friends. And that’s really special. yogartevent.com OD

Lee Miller’s career started when the publisher Condé Nast saved her from being hit by a car in 1926, and only got more outrageous from there. A model for Edward Steichen, she fell in with the Surrealists via her lover Man Ray. Blossoming into one of the most iconic photographers of her age, she moved from fine art to reportage. In 1942, she became a war photographer, documenting the devastation of World War II alongside the Allied troops as they reclaimed Europe. Look for the photograph of herself in Hitler’s bathtub.

For the Love of Miami

For art lover Jorge Pérez, Ceo oF the related Group, MiaMi is his Greatest Canvas. by jon warech Jorge Pérez’s office is beautiful. The walls are packed with art that you could easily imagine inside the billionaire’s palatial home or in the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the modern and contemporary art museum that dons his name. What catches the eye inside The Related Group CEO’s office, though, is the window, which reveals one of Pérez’s greatest masterpieces: Brickell. “We’ve turned Brickell into one of the financial, commercial centers in the world,” says Pérez. “If you go to South America and you say ‘Brickell,’ that’s all you need to say. The Brickell Avenue address is gold. It’s like Park Avenue in New York. So I look at it and I’m proud.” He should be proud. It’s been estimated that one out of every four residents in Brickell lives in Related Group buildings like Icon Brickell, 1100 Millecento, My Brickell, and The Plaza on Brickell to name a few. With Brickell Heights, One Brickell, SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences, and SLS Lux in the works, his office view is about to get even nicer. Often he’s his own competition, which is not a bad problem to have. “Typically, there will be differences in each one of those jobs—some are a little more luxurious; one has a hotel component—but I make them compete,” he continued on page 190

Between Jorge Pérez’s ofﬁce, home, and worldclass museum (he still buys for them directly) his life is so packed with art that collecting has become a job in and of itself. “I changed my philosophy once I gave all of my collection to the museum,” he says. “I went from collecting dead masters into really enjoying the whole artistic process and commissioning from local artists. Before, I was exclusive Latin America. Now, I’m buying, sort of, anything that I like. Nevertheless, there’s still a deep bend towards Cuban and Latin
American. I could mention 15 that we’re working very closely with that I love. In Havana, we have Carlos Garaicoa, Glenda León, Los Carpinteros, [Roberto] Fabelo. In Argentina, Matías Duville, [Eduardo] Hoffmann, [Guillermo] Kuitca, and [Lautaro] Cuttica. Every country I could give you names. Then I have these classical guys I love like Kenneth Noland and Alex Katz, Frank Stella, Giorgio de Chirico. I’ve always wanted to have their pieces and before I would only collect Latin American pieces and now I sort of freed myself.”

the window, he’s proud because he’s making Miami a better place to live. It’s why he donated $40 million to create PAMM. It’s also why he’s creating the Biscayne Line, a 15-mile walkway and linear park that runs along Biscayne Bay and the Miami River. “A lot of the stuff we do has nothing to do with dollar value; it’s got to do with the long-term value of the city that you love and you want your grandchildren to live in,” he says. “It becomes very important to me, as legacy, to not think of the dollar volume, but to think of what you leave behind in a museum or great buildings or in a bay walk or river walk.” Pérez has the same concern for the people of Miami. He wants better jobs for residents and affordability for middle-income earners. Born in Buenos Aires to Cuban parents, Pérez started in the 1970s in public housing in neighborhoods like Little Havana and Homestead. It was a long climb to the top and it’s CONTINUED ON PAGE 192

says. “I will go in and say, ‘How come they’re selling a lot more than you are?’” Like his art collection, with each building, beauty comes first. Pérez chooses the perfect architect and interior designer for each project to shape the skyline and beguile the buyers. In Brickell and around Miami, in neighborhoods like Coconut Grove, Doral, Edgewater, and Miami Beach, Pérez is redesigning the city with the help of some of the biggest names in the industry. Marea, a boutique 30-unit residence with four penthouses South of Fifth, features architecture and design by Sieger Suarez Architects and Yabu Pushelberg. The Paraiso community in Edgewater will have four towers planned on five bayfront acres, each tower featuring a world-renowned designer to create the interiors. London-based United Designers Partnership, led by Keith Hobbs, will craft Paraiso Bay; his clients include George Clooney and Bono from U2. Park Grove, which is completely re-shaping Coconut Grove, is designed by Rem Koolhaas; One Ocean is brought to you by Enrique Norten; and Icon Bay will stand tall thanks to Arquitectonica. “We are going around the world and getting architects to make the landscape not only beautiful, but different,” Pérez says. “The buildings become a little bit more expensive, but they’re beautiful. They really become architectural masterpieces. If you look at the number of great architects that are now working in Miami, it’s incredible. I think this makes the city better.” Pérez also has two full-time employees dedicated to buying “museum-quality art” for each project, because as he says, “art makes people’s lives better.” And that’s really Pérez’s goal: quality of life. Yes, real estate is a big money business, but when he looks out

his goal to make Miami residents grow with him. “How do we get Coca-Cola? How do we get Google?” he says noting that it’s time for big businesses to call Miami home in order for locals to thrive. “When we did searches for the museum and for the University of Miami president—and I was involved in both—we had a huge desire for the jobs. People saw Miami as a place that had great growth potential. The more we reflect that image and sell the world on that image, the better we’re going to be at getting those companies to move in. And we need it.” That kind of growth in the job market would also help the historically boom-or-bust real estate industry in Miami. Pérez wants that for the buyers, but The Related Group has up to this point overcome the rollercoaster, regardless. “Most of the people in this last crisis just collapsed,” says Pérez, who calls surviving the recession in 2008 his greatest career achievement. “Miami was the epicenter. We got hit hard. We had to negotiate with 80 lenders at very difficult times and we did it transparently with the least bloodletting as possible. We never had a building we did not complete, and we delivered on time, within the budgets. That’s a very proud thing.” There’s an art to Pérez’s success, and that is what fuels his fire today. While he enjoys the rush of the risk, these days there’s more of a thrill to being creative in both design and sales. “I love marketing,” he says. “I love to figure out how it is that we’re going to sell this new building to Russians, Venezuelans, Argentineans, Canadians, and New Yorkers. If I don’t have the enthusiasm about Miami being the greatest place in the world, there’s no way I can go to South America and get people to trust me and buy my buildings. I tell people, if you don’t have the passion for it, then get out of the business. You’re in the wrong place.” OD

Heads turned when news outlets reported that Jorge Pérez, a well-known Democrat, made a donation to the Jeb Bush campaign. “My wife supported Jeb Bush,” he quickly points out. “Jeb has been a longtime friend, but I’m a Democrat. I will vote Democrat. When I look at immigration, global warming, education, and health, I’m absolutely a Democrat. I think Obama, particularly in these last six months of his presidency, has done a very good job both internationally and nationally. The Republicans I just totally disagree with. Donald Trump is a friend of mine, and a business partner, and I totally
disagree with his positions on immigration. I know he likes the limelight and he’s a decision maker, but he doesn’t have all of the patience you would need [as president]. But, people are looking for an alternative; people are looking for a strong voice.” With his love for Miami and his views on how to improve the city, it would seem natural for Pérez to someday run for offce himself. “I wouldn’t be in politics for anything under the sun,” he says. “I hate speaking in public. I hate bureaucratic processes. I would make the worst politician in the world.”

PEOPLE New in Town ’tis the season From Balanchine to Bernstein, the 30th-anniversary season of Miami City Ballet is one of its strongest yet. The company is adding four major works to its repertoire, including George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which has been reinterpreted with a South Florida favor and given brand-new sets and costumes. Other masterpieces to catch include Jerome Robbins’s beloved Fancy Free, which inspired the classic musical comedy On the Town, with music by Leonard Bernstein; Year of the Rabbit, an edgy ballet danced to music from the enigmatic Sufjan Stevens; and The Nutcracker, which returns in December to all four of MCB’s venues. 2200 Liberty Ave., Miami Beach, 305-929-7000; miamicityballet.org
“I am so happy to have found Miami City Ballet,” says the troupe’s newest principal dancer, Simone Messmer. The elegant, long-limbed Messmer—who pirouetted into her profession when she joined New York’s storied American Ballet Theatre but is now an enthusiastic Miami transplant—chats about her new life in the sun. How did ballet become your career? I was a kid who would not sit still. I used to put on my sister’s petticoat, make my family sit on the couch, turn on the classical music station, and just dance around for hours. My mom put me in ballet when I was 3. When I was 14, I got accepted to The Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, a small [ballet] boarding school. And then at 16, I got the call saying I got a job with ABT’s Studio Company and spent a season with them before getting an apprenticeship with the main ABT company. What brought you to Miami? I stayed at ABT until 2013 and decided it was time for me to move. I chose San Francisco, which was not a good fit for me. I was a little bit lost about what my next step should be, so I went back to New York. Then, this
past May, I called [MCB artistic director] Lourdes Lopez and I said, “I don’t know if you know me, but I heard you’re doing great things in Miami, and I was wondering if you’d be interested in me?” The next day she wrote me and said, “I know your dancing very well; I’d like to offer you a position.” That was shocking to me because they hadn’t seen me in almost two years. It all happened within a couple of weeks. You started with the company this summer. How are your first few months in Miami going? I like it a lot. When I was a kid, my mother sent me to language immersion school, so all of my schooling was actually in Spanish. Down here, I’m very thankful for that—it’s making things a little easier. The company members and the staff have been very welcoming to me and very supportive, which has meant a lot and made the transition very easy. When you’re not in rehearsal, where can we find you? I’m a beach girl because I was a competitive swimmer before I was a dancer. I’m three blocks from [South] Beach, so I just walk over. I do want to try paddleboarding. I’m waiting for a day when I won’t be too sore the next day for work! OD

“It’s easy to get caught up in the trappings surrounding fairs, but fundamentally it’s about quality,” says Noah Horowitz, who oversees the ever-expanding Miami Beach edition of Art Basel as its new director Americas.
New Art BAsel AmericAs Director Noah horowitz BriNgs A gloBAl worlD of Art to miAmi BeAch. by hunter braithwaite “It’s easy to get caught up in the trappings or hot air surrounding fairs, but fundamentally it’s about quality. You can’t underline that enough,” says Noah Horowitz. He should know: Since publishing his Art of the Deal: Contemporary Art in a Global Financial Market in 2011, the 36-year-old art historian has been an expert on the peculiar economics of the art world. Fresh off a four-year stint as the director of New York’s Armory Show—a fair many claim he resuscitated— Horowitz has been appointed Art Basel’s first director Americas. In this new position, he will cultivate relationships with gallerists, collectors, and museum curators, holding down this hemisphere for the world’s leading fair. Raised in Princeton, New Jersey, Horowitz attended the University of Virginia in pursuit of a Wall Street career, though it was the investment issues surrounding the art world that would capture his interest. Upon graduating, he crossed the pond to London, where he received both an MA and a PhD from The Courtauld Institute of Art, examining the “broader engagement of how art today fits within the larger business environment.” Looking at how

much of contemporary art’s value was established through entrepreneurial means, he focused on installation, video, and conceptual art—forms notoriously difficult to sell. His big break came in 2011 when he was hired to lead The Armory Show, which many felt had declined in recent years, back to prominence. His strategy? Narrowing down the exhibitor list and traveling the world with his team, aspiring for a “global focus on the curatorial and programming objectives of the fair.” Turns out timing is everything in the art world, too, and it just so happened that another fair had its eye set for global domination. When Art Basel launched its Hong Kong edition in 2013, fair head Marc Spiegler had inevitably taken note of Horowitz’s work at Armory, and subsequently tapped him for the just-established parallel position as Art Basel’s director Asia. As for his new position as director Americas, “The role is really broad,” says Horowitz. “I’ll be down quite regularly to meet our constituents in Miami—everybody from the collectors who open their homes to gallerists like Fred Snitzer, Michael Jon, and Sarah Gavlak.” At the Convention Center, he will oversee the mammoth fair, which continues to diversify past its blue-chip meat and potatoes to include a sector on historic art, Survey, as well as the Nova and Positions sectors devoted to emerging art. He’s also in for a good bit of yearround travel. While Armory took him mostly across the Atlantic, his latest role will allow room for exploration both within the US—regional hot spots like Dallas and Chicago— and South American centers like Mexico City and Bogotá, bringing back “a global view to Miami Beach, but also to be a spokesperson on the ground, building these relationships in our own backyard.” OD

Bite Your WaY through Basel
Whether you’re an artist, connoisseur, collector, celebrity, local, or simply visiting during the busiest Week of the year, miami restaurants dish out something for everyone. by carla torres
There’s no doubt that Miami is a place to wine, dine, party till sunrise, and get your suntan on, 365 days of the year. But if there’s a week when the fun and sun simply don’t stop, Art Basel in Miami Beach is it. Last year, 73,000 visitors traveled to our Magic City for the endless art fairs, invite-only soirées, and celebrity sightings that kept the rest of the world talking until the carnival comes back around. Of course that’s in addition to the lucky ones who have the luxury to call our urban playground home, and thus see Basel as just another excuse to play. “Art Basel gives Miami a chance to show off its ever-growing food scene because it brings aficionados from all over the world, who obviously are into art, but they are gourmands as well,” says Brad Kilgore, a Jean-Georges Vongerichten protégé and chef/owner of Alter in Wynwood, where just a few months ago, the

“Art BAsel gives MiAMi A chAnce to show off its ever-growing food scene.”—brad kilgore Roca brothers (owners and chefs of the world’s numberone restaurant, El Celler de Can Roca) strolled in for a casual lunch. The brothers applauded Kilgore’s technique to be “the future Miami food.” Here, a look at all the best places to sample some of today’s culinary masterpieces. Celebrity Destinations
For the truly privileged, who jet down here on their private plane, the most important question after “Who’s the artist?” is “Where do we eat?” With so little time (just five days) and so much to see (267 galleries from 31 different countries showed in 2014), it’s impossible to sample everything that Miami’s all-star culinary scene has to
offer. Since last year’s fair alone, the city has welcomed newcomers like Top Chef alums Dale Talde and Spike Mendelsohn—who opened Talde (you’ll want to nosh on the twice-brined kimchee yogurt Korean fried chicken and award-winning wings) and Sunny’s—as well as the show’s formidable host, Tom Colicchio, who introduced his renowned Craft brand to 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. While Beachcraft may be seafood-focused, it would be pure blasphemy to not try the newest addition to the robust menu: veal meatballs. Celebrity chef and Chopped star Alex Guarnaschelli made her entry into the Miami dining circuit with the nautically and locally inspired Driftwood Room
at the Nautilus, a Sixty Hotel (make sure you order the fried carrots). And restaurant magnate Stephen Starr brought Philadelphia’s 20-year-old (and Starr’s very first foray into the industry) The Continental to South Beach’s Aloft. Bite into the famed cheesesteak rolls and wash them down with any one of Continental’s many tiki-inspired cocktails (specifically the smoky, mezcal-heavy Bump n’ Rind) concocted by The Broken Shaker’s Gui Jaroschy. Speaking of The Broken Shaker—Miami’s first pop-up bar turned one of the World’s 50 Best Bars—be sure to stop in for a drink and then make your way next door to the two-story 1930s Key West– style house in the Freehand’s
backyard. Besides oozing with cool, 27 Restaurant & Bar is an amalgamation of Miami’s finest flavors, best savored through the local daily catch, swimming in coconut-curry broth with farro. Finally acquire that dream Warhol? Celebrate with The Setai’s $100 gold martini. Or do as Warhol would have done and attempt to get a table at The Forge’s famously celebrated wine cellar, where Tom Cruise, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Jackson have all enjoyed the grapes of someone else’s labor. “Like the art of winemaking, the wine cellar is steeped in history and appreciated by art lovers of all kinds,” says The Forge’s owner, Shareef Malnik.

A once desolate avenue and tourist trap, Collins Avenue is now an epicurean epicenter. Take a trip down the rabbit hole at José Andrés’s culinary wonderland The Bazaar, where a Cubano airbread sandwich defies the laws of physics and yucca churros grace the dinner menu. Or pay a visit to the
Mediterranean at either Byblos or the Middle East with Cleo, where mezzes and spiked tea service are just the beginning. Carnivores can sate a craving at the Miami outpost of famed New York steakhouse Quality Meats, which proudly touts its Pat LaFrieda cuts of beef and serves them alongside sweetly savory corn brûlée. Trying to keep it on the light side? Chef John Iatrellis at Lure Fishbar will tickle your fancy with his deft hand at seafood. Without veering off the celebrated Art Deco boulevard, travel to the Far East via Bazí, where you can indulge in Peking duck, or south of the border by way of Taquiza for some authentic al pastor Mexican tacos with handmade tortillas. Then, close the night with a handcrafted bevvy—choose between nearby hot spots The Regent Cocktail Club,
The Drawing Room, Matador Room, Repour Bar, or new kid on the South Beach block Sweet Liberty. Keeping the art party going past regular fair hours and in need of an edible nightcap? The covert Asian-style barbecue Drunken Dragon will feed your needs. Or if it’s more of an early-morning situation, the French sandwiches at La Sandwicherie will bring you back to life and put a halt to an impending hangover. Should that not do the trick, the Marley açai bowl with peanut butter (or anything else, for that matter) at the all-organic hidden gem Under the Mango Tree will. Those hoping to impress a crowd should make a reservation at Japanese destination izakaya Zuma or Peruvian paradise La Mar, where Miami’s crème de la

local,” you’ll want to journey over the bridge. But before steering toward Wynwood and the Design District—where Art Basel and the culinary offerings have concurrently blossomed—hit up Joe’s Take Away for stone crabs, fried chicken, and the best Key lime pie in town, and in true Miami fashion, eat it on the actual sandy beach. For any art aficionado, a visit to Wynwood is a must. As Jessica Goldman Srebnick, the daughter of Arts District visionary Tony Goldman, best puts it, “Art Basel has enabled Miami to push the creative barrier in not only our arts and cultural programming, but has inspired a culinary explosion. Let’s not forget that food is a form of art.” While strolling the labyrinth of murals, pop into Zak the Baker for anything freshly baked, or the burgeoning neighborhood’s first eatery, Joey’s, where Jay Z and Beyoncé noshed on what Food & Wine called the best pizza in the country. Another stellar slice is Proof’s Neapolitan oxtail pie (if you’re into wild toppings) or classic margherita. Follow it up with a Crack Pie—or any other of Fireman Derek’s sweet and heavenly creations—down the street at his psychedelic bake shop. And for the best cocktails off the beach, newcomer GK Bistronomie has one of Latin America’s top barkeeps mixing up one-of-a-kind potions to pair with modern Peruvianinspired fare (think grouper Parmesan tiradito). Balance decadence with some liquid sustenance from Jucy Lu or JugoFresh before and between exhibits, or at the end of a day’s worth of art, by slurping over a dozen varieties of oysters at Edgewater’s Mignonette. And just when you think you’ve had enough, brunch calls. Be it a kimchee bloody mary, breakfast pizza (with the standard egg on top, of course), or a Nutella and salted caramel sticky bun, Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in the Design District remains the place to be ever since chef Michael Schwartz started dishing out the Sunday spread. “Basel is all hands on deck,” says the James Beard Award–winning chef. “The clientele—cultured, international—appreciate good food and have high expectations of what a dining experience should be.” That must be why for the first time—and just in time for Basel—the chef is introducing the breakfast-meets-lunch-and-booze mashup at his newly revamped Cypress Tavern on Saturday. “Basel is what we live for in this business,” says Schwartz. “It’s a big party!” And in Miami, that party never stops.

taste the Dish The whole fried snapper with papaya salad at Bazí takes diners on a culinary tour of Asia, starring a very local ingredient: Islamorada snapper, fresh off the boat that morning.
Fishhooked When Michael Pirolo announced he’d be leaving his post at Scott Conant’s Scarpetta to open Macchialina, a rustic Italian neighborhood joint, with life and business partner Jen Chaefsky, it became evident that the Queens-born, Italy-bred chef and general manager were hooked on Miami. After all, the “chef’s chef” who’d worked the kitchens of Chris Lee’s two-Michelin-starrated Gilt in New York and restaurant magnate Stephen Starr’s Striped Bass (where he and Chaefsky met) could have gone anywhere. “Miami has changed in the last five years,” says Pirolo. “Back then, you’d get dropped off on Collins [Avenue] and realize there was nothing to eat. Now I find myself coming to eat on Collins at all these great places.” Joining that list of Collins greats—including Pirolo favorites Cleo, Quality Meats, and Taquiza—is Bazí, Pirolo and Chaefsky’s second restaurant love child. Set at the Marlin Hotel and the former home of South Beach Studios, where continued on page 216

taste the Dish To make the dish more approachable, Pirolo has discerningly removed every single bone from the fish while dexterously leaving the head and tail attached. He then ties the snapper together in order to retain that moisture while it sizzles in a pan until its skin (dusted in a gluten-free rice flour) gets a nice, golden Miami tan. “It really is a labor of love, but because it’s deboned, it cooks faster, so there’s a payoff.” That payoff is the pristineness and piquancy of the fish itself, amplified by papaya as the unconventional cherry on top, which gets tossed with jalapeño, daikon, jicama, cilantro, lime juice, fish sauce, and a spoonful of brown sugar. “It’s very Thai,” he confesses of the not-so-secret sweet ingredient. “You’ve got to balance out the fish sauce and sourness of the lime.” Pirolo also finds balance with the texture and nature of dual lettuce—bibb and purple shiso, in this case—leaving traces of mildly sweet and smooth to herbaceous and prickly on your palate as you alternate between the two. Be sure to sop each bite in the finishing soy chili sauce that gets poured over the snapper tableside, and once you’ve exhausted your lettuce wrap supply, move on to the head of the snapper. “Some people are squeamish, but that’s where the best meat is. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked.” 1200 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305695-0101; bazimiami.com OD

Bob Marley, Mick Jagger, Prince, and U2 have literally recorded history, Bazí instantly transports diners to 1940s Hong Kong by way of bonsai trees, striking red touches, candlelight, and a golden dragon watching over the cavernous space. It’s Bazí’s family-style modern Asian menu—and especially the whole fried snapper—that takes your taste buds on a culinary journey through the Far East while keeping things local and freshly Miami. “The main thing about this dish is the fish we get,” says Pirolo of the snapper that comes from Islamorada every morning and is practically selling out every night. “Instructions are to get the one that came right off the boat.” That’s precisely why Bazí doesn’t specify the type of snapper on its menu. “Sometimes it’s yellowtail; sometimes it’s vermilion,” says Pirolo. If you’re really lucky, the sea will have dealt you a yellow eyes (otherwise and locally known as red snapper), which is prized for its meat. “I haven’t had much of that in my life, so I really like it.” At Bazí, Pirolo is finally sating his desire “to do a whole fish,” but as Macchialina (and beet-filled mezzaluna) devotees well know, the chef likes to do things traditionally untraditional. “We started off doing it with the bones and then thought it would be cool to do lettuce wraps,” says Pirolo of the restaurant’s snapper specialty, “but it was pretty scary so we partially deboned it, and it was still scary.”
tAStE Profle Fans of Top Chef—or food in general—have a hard time resisting the saucy, opinionated, quick-witted redhead who finished fifth on Season 4 and has since made several television and South Beach Wine & Food Festival appearances (winning Burger Bash in 2009). Spike Mendelsohn even had the president stop by his farm-to-table restaurant, Good Stuff Eatery in Washington, DC, to try the Prez Obama Burger. Mendelsohn’s first South Beach restaurant, Sunny’s, is “a departure from anything I’ve done before,” he says, calling it a “utopia of fun.” Here the semiFlorida native dishes on life after Top Chef, his bad-boy image, and his bright beach shack.

Growing up in St. Petersburg, did you ever come down to Miami? I grew up in Montreal and Clearwater Beach, and then St. Petersburg, where I went to military school at Admiral Farragut Academy. My parents owned a fine-dining Spanish restaurant, which I grew up in. I would come down to Miami to party a lot. Why Miami and why now? Miami is a fun place to do business. You see a lot of different chefs putting their take on their Miami restaurants. It was time for me to do something a little different. And the warm weather is nice, too. The restaurant is named after your grandfather. Was his nickname Sunny? Yeah, and he actually had a house in Fort Lauderdale not too far from Miami Beach. Can we expect lots of sunny-side-up eggs?
Yes, definitely! It’d be his type of place to go eat at—just laid-back fun food. As an avid traveling surfer, are the concept and menu inspired or influenced by that beach-culture street food? That’s the food that I enjoy the most. I used to label it as street food or plate lunch or beach food, but it’s kind of just inspired by the coasts and the food that I usually love to eat while I’m listening to waves. There’s a dish that we’re doing our take on at Sunny’s called chicken and rice in a bag, and I remember having it in Bali. They had these amazing street-style cones that kind of looked like wax paper, and there was rice at the bottom of them with a little bit of curry and chicken on top, and I remember it being the most delicious thing ever. We’ll also be doing your classic grouper Reuben—with fresh catch we’ll be getting locally—but also lobster rolls and all sorts of fun beach fish-shack fare. And we’ve got a really great juice program that we’re going to apply. What’s the biggest misconception you think people have about you? They don’t look at me as business-savvy or as serious. I think I got this rep of being like a bad-boy chef over the years. I’m a restaurateur and chef and business guy now, and when I was on Top Chef, I was making maybe $300 a week, working crazy hours in New York City, running a French Vietnamese restaurant. I think my whole life has changed in eight years. 1500 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-5311251; jdvhotels.com OD

Top Chef alum Dale TalDe brings his eponymous eatery to the heart of miami beach. by carla torres “We want Talde to be a local staple you can’t live without,” says chef Dale Talde, who recently opened his Miami Beach restaurant after running Talde Brooklyn for the past three years and Talde Jersey City since February. Try the former Top Chef contestant’s kung pao chicken wings (named best in the country by Food & Wine) and unorthodox—but insanely fun—Asian-American grub (crispy oyster and bacon pad thai, anyone?) and you may indeed find you can’t live without Talde. Other delectables include late-night bowls of ramen and midnight specials, such as pretzel-pork-and-chive dumplings and Korean twice-fried chicken that’s been brined in kimchi yogurt. “We love Miami,” declares the chef. “It’s a melting pot of flavors and people, and the culinary scene is booming.” Thompson Miami Beach, 4041 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-605-4041; thompsonmiamibeach.com

Three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade was the star of the show once again. In addition to his unmatched athleticism, the 13-year Miami resident is revered for his impeccable fashion sense, his entrepreneurial spirit (he just launched Wade Wine, his first Napa Valley red wine collection, in partnership with Pahlmeyer), and, most importantly, his undying love for and devotion to his family. The man of many talents arrived at the Miami Beach landmark the Fontainebleau in style, pulling up in a Maserati Ghibli (courtesy of The Collection) with his movie-star wife, Gabrielle Union, to celebrate his second well-deserved Ocean Drive cover. The beautiful power couple— who just celebrated their first wedding anniversary—posed for a flurry of flashing cameras before joining Miami VIPs for a private dinner at Stripsteak by Michael Mina. Ditching his athletic gear for sartorial sophistication, the always fashion-forward Wade wore an A. Sauvage three-piece suit and white Saint Laurent kicks, while Union stunned in a backless satin blouse and a shimmering pale-blue skirt. With basketball season in full swing, Miami Heat fans can get their dose of Wade on his home court at the AmericanAirlines Arena or in high definition when the team is on the road. For those wishing to emulate his slam-dunk success, Wade offered his best advice: “Work your butt off. Nothing is given to you. Tomorrow isn’t promised, obviously. Like I tell my kids, if you want to be something, if you want to be an athlete, you have to put the work in, no matter how much talent you have.”

Last year, commuters boarding a new Jersey transit train in New York City’s crowded Penn Station were treated to a glamorous surprise—actress Katie Holmes was traipsing up and down the platform in a floor-length red ball gown. “Heels and a train…nothing better #newyork #pennstation,” she Instagrammed to her 220,000 followers. The moment wouldn’t become relevant until recently when she posted the photo, almost a year after it was taken. Subsequently, ABC News wrote an online article titled “Stars Take the Train,” People magazine called her “The Queen of Throwbacks,” and Entertainment Tonight dissected the situation using unnamed sources to explain this was not a new photo, but rather an outtake from a fashion shoot. Such is the life of Holmes, who has spent the better part of the last 18 years in the international spotlight, first as Joey Potter on the small-screen cult classic Dawson’s Creek, before making headlines as the star of such films as Pieces of April, Go, Wonder Boys, The Ice Storm, Thank You for Smoking, and Batman Begins, as well as her much publicized marriage to Tom Cruise. “I have a very normal life, and I happen to work in an industry that is abnormal,” says Holmes. “Daily life, I take a train and cab; it’s just about getting from here to there, and I don’t care how I do it. I have to get there.” On the day we meet for the Ocean Drive cover shoot—a cold, rainy day in Brooklyn—she’s fresh off a red-eye from Los Angeles, sans entourage, carrying just a handbag, a hanging bag with a Zac Posen dress for a Hillary Clinton rally later that night, and a severely cracked iPhone that she has neither fixed nor plans to. “I think most people have cracked iPhones. I’ve just been too busy.” Busy is an understatement for Holmes, who prioritizes her to-do list as full-time mom first, then actress, activist, and face of Alterna Haircare, and aspiring artist. Days before the cover shoot, she was one of the hosts of the 2015 Global Citizen Festival, which aims to end extreme poverty by 2030, with her 9-year-old daughter, Suri, in tow. In between filming the Showtime series Ray Donovon and the upcoming film Touched With Fire, and making her directorial debut in All We Had, Holmes’s agenda has been filled with fashion galas, photo shoots, and an intense workout regimen that includes “a little bit of everything—running, yoga, dance class, spin class. I try to fit as much in as I can without really stressing about it, and I always try to have a good time.” This month, she’ll jump down to Miami to escape the harsh New York winter, for her first Art Basel experience. “I love the weather, the restaurants,” says Holmes. “I’ve never been [to Miami] for Art Basel before; I picture this exciting city and great energy. And the beaches are incredible. I will take time to peruse [the art]; I’m really excited to have all of those galleries in one place, and I’m going to check everything out.” On the Ocean Drive set, Holmes enjoys a slice of pizza (no plate, like New Yorkers do) and Diet Coke and a soy latte. Salads and veggies were on special order, but she didn’t go near them. “I try to be healthy and eat fruits and veggies, but I enjoy going out to dinner and having french fries like everyone else. And good guacamole,” says Holmes, who’s mouthing every word to the Beyoncé tracks playing on the stereo. “I think she’s not just incredibly talented, but she works so hard,” she says of the singer. “We have watched her from the beginning just continue to push herself. She reaches her potential and she pushes it more, so it’s very inspiring.” Part dancer (Holmes does a full back bend on a production ladder) and adventure-seeker (she climbs up on a window sill clearly not safe to hold a human being), Holmes effortlessly switches between sexy, glamorous, serious, and comedic as she goes through eight wardrobe changes over a six-hour shoot. “What is wonderful about New York is there’s so many places that you can live here your whole life and never see, and there’s just so many hidden treasures,” the actress says. “If you’re having a bad day, you just take a walk, and it’s not only that you see people who are having a worse day than you, it’s just that you’re in life. You suddenly can’t be stuck in whatever problem you’re in because you have to hail a cab or you have to get a subway ticket. There’s more than just you. And I think the harsh winters give you a little bit of character.” And Holmes’s New York experience has certainly given her more than just character. It started with an apartment above a Whole Foods Market on Manhattan’s Seventh Avenue and daily trips to drop off and pick up her daughter from school. She’s also developed a voice in the form of social media, specifically Instagram and Twitter. Akin to riding the train or dealing with cracked technology, she doesn’t think it’s a big deal. “Some people post, like, 25 pictures a day; I post one a week,” she says. “I had to get into the, you know, 2015.”
“I have a very normal lIfe. I take a traIn and cab; It’s just about gettIng from here to there, and I don’t care how I do It. I have to get there.”

“Motherhood changes you coMpletely in such aMazing ways, and i think that you becoMe who you were Meant to be.”
It’s that private side of Holmes the world is only starting to get a glimpse of. “I’m a normal person and I do walk around,” she says of her random social media posts—her lying on park benches, doing splits mid-air on Manhattan streets, selfies, and capturing mother-daughter moments in public. “Normal”—and occasional moments of privacy—is something Katie Holmes has been able to execute quite flawlessly, as she continues to raise her daughter. So how has motherhood changed her? “That’s a very long question that could probably inspire books for every parent. It changes you completely in such amazing ways, and I think that you become who you were meant to be. Being a parent also is a source of inspiration to just work really hard. You want to set an example—and, you know, [your kids] are what drives you.” But to truly understand her perspective on the issue, you have to go back to her Toledo, Ohio, roots. “I’m fortunate because I’m the baby of five, and my brothers and sisters have all achieved a lot in their lives—and my parents as well,” says Holmes. “My father ran a marathon at age 45; I ran a marathon at age 28. And I think his time was better. My dad inspires me; he gave me a lot of confidence growing up. We were raised [with the attitude], Whatever you want to do, you can do it, no problem, just do it.” That confidence is what has allowed her to branch out in her career, from taking risqué roles in The Gift, where she went topless, to playing surprising parts such as “The Slutty Pumpkin” on How I Met Your Mother, to directing in All We Had. “I don’t shy away from risks,” she says. “I’m just interested in a lot of different things. I don’t even think of it as a risk; I think of it as something exciting and new. As I’ve grown up, I think that the harder you work the more successful you are. From what I have seen, the people at the top, they’re just constantly working and constantly surrounding themselves with other successful, like-minded creative people.” Creative is not a word she tosses around lightly. Although she dismisses it as anything serious, painting is huge passion in her life right now, and it can often be seen in her Instagram feed. She calls it “arts and crafts, a hobby,” but it’s clear there’s more to it than that. “It’s how I unwind,” she says. “There are so many people who are way more talented. I’m just a wannabe. I surround myself with friends who are very artistic, and I work a lot, so I’m constantly with really creative people. I get inspired by other people.” What doesn’t inspire her is negativity and gossip, something that comes with the territory in Hollywood. While Holmes rarely comments on any specific falsehood, she’s quick to refute the subject of tabloids as a whole. “Since I started in the business, [tabloid journalism has] changed so much, and I feel that it’s very distracting from the work that people are putting in and are putting out,” says Holmes. “There is such talent out there, and sometimes it’s distracted by reports and tabloids and media and that’s unfortunate. I wish the spotlight could go back on celebrating the talent and leave it at that.” Thankfully, 2016 will bring plenty of attention on Holmes’s talent, including her performance in the indie darling Touched With Fire, directed by Paul Dalio and executive produced by Spike Lee. Holmes plays a woman with bipolar disorder who is stuck in a mental institution who falls in love with another patient. “I decided to throw myself into this story, a role I hadn’t played before,” she says. “It was a really incredible acting experience and also a human experience because it taught me a lot about bipolar disorder and just how hard it is to live with and how it affects people’s families…. It was a really powerful and profound experience.” Made for under $1 million, the payoff may be greater than the investment. With the movie fresh out of the SXSW film festival, the Huffington Post recently reviewed it as “Holmes’s best performance in years.” Which suits her just fine. “I really enjoy my life,” she says. Alas, what is not on the horizon is a reunion of the show that made Holmes a star. “[Dawson’s Creek] was such a special time in all of our lives [but] some things are better when it stays the way it was,” she says of any potential reunion. “I would love to get together with everybody, [but] I’m not sure a reunion would be as fulfilling as what we all want it to be. I’m game for anything.” And of course, there’s not looking back, on that or anything else. Only forward. “I don’t really regret anything that I’ve done. I’ve learned from everything, and everything sort of leads you to the next place. I just keep going.” OD
“I don’t really regret anythIng that I’ve done. I’ve learned from everythIng.”

by ROBERTA NAAS
egend has it that an emerald placed under the tongue can endow a person with the ability to see the future. Another ancient belief is that an emerald protects its wearer from evil spirits and spells. The gem’s vivid green color has sparked the imagination for centuries, and its allure remains as powerful today. In the recent must-read New York Times best seller Luckiest Girl Alive, the emerald engagement ring worn by the protagonist—an über-glamorous magazine editor—represents the perfect life she aspires to. And the 2015 Grammy Awards saw no less a luminary than Beyoncé rocking 80 carat emerald and diamond earrings on the red carpet. Queen Bey is just the greatest and latest star to adorn herself with emeralds, a trend that was kicked into overdrive by Angelina Jolie when she wore dramatic emerald drop earrings to the 2009 Academy Awards. Since then, a slew of celebs, including Taylor Swift and Emma Stone, have embraced the craze for emeralds, the likes of which we haven’t seen since 1953, when JFK presented an emerald engagement ring to Jacqueline Bouvier. This renewed obsession with emeralds is increasing demand for the gem and yielding an abundance of new designs in the fine-jewelry market. “Now more than ever before, the world is paying attention to color in jewelry,” says Melvyn Kirtley, chief gemologist at Tiffany & Co. “Color allows more individuality when complementing a wardrobe, and as people become more educated about emeralds, they want to own these enchanting stones.”
In response to this heightened interest, top players in the jewelry and gemstone industry, as well as private and government-owned emerald mining companies, gathered in Colombia in October for the first International Emerald Symposium. Experts from the major emerald-producing countries—Colombia, Brazil, Zambia, Russia, Afghanistan, Madagascar, and Pakistan—came together to discuss the many facets of mining and marketing, with a focus on how to modernize production, set uniform standards worldwide, and provide consumers with more information.
FROM THE GROUND UP Emeralds were born in the earth’s crust 500 million years ago, in a process initiated by the tremendous heat and pressure created by the movement of tectonic plates. Most of the world’s emeralds are mined in Colombia, Brazil, and Zambia, with the rough stones in each region having a slightly different coloration, depending on the amount of chromium, vanadium, and iron in the crystal. According to the Gemological Institute of America, experts differ on how green a stone must be to be called an emerald rather than a less-valuable beryl, but the consensus is that an emerald is saturated with color—a deep, verdant green—while a beryl is lighter. The pricing of emeralds is largely a function of supply and demand—and their supply has always been quite limited, due to the rarity of beryllium, an essential component of emeralds’ molecular structure. In fact, emeralds are rarer than diamonds. “But in the past few years, with the emerald mining in

ASK THE EXPERTS
Africa, we’re seeing a little bit stronger production,” says Henri Barguirdjian, president and CEO of Graff Diamonds USA. “That has helped spur the trend.” He notes that the stone’s rarity naturally elevates its status. While the industry’s fragmented nature makes accurate statistics about colored gems difficult to come by, experts estimate that more than 20 percent of retail jewelry sales today involves colored stones, compared to less than 10 percent five years ago, with the price for emeralds increasing by 10 to 20 percent over the same period.
The four C’s—color, cut, clarity, and carat weight—have long been the standards for quality when it comes to diamonds, but how do they apply to emeralds? The experts weigh in.
GARDEN OF STONES
Due to their rarity and richness of color, emeralds have for centuries been valued as one of the “big three” colored gems, along with rubies and sapphires. “Emeralds have an extraordinary history,” says Barguirdjian. Cleopatra was said to be enamored of them, and the Russian crown jewels included a number of remarkable specimens, in terms of both size and quality. “All of the best jewelry collections, like Elizabeth Taylor’s, have had spectacular emeralds in them,” Barguirdjian adds. “For customers building a jewelry collection today, the emerald is a must.” Many leading jewelry houses with a long history of using emeralds, such as Bulgari, Cartier, Graff Diamonds, Harry Winston, and Van Cleef & Arpels, are answering consumers’ growing demand for green by incorporating these vivid treasures into their collections in exciting new ways. Graff, for example, has introduced extraordinary pieces featuring carved emeralds. The art of carving an emerald (as opposed to cutting it in facets) is centuries old, with notable examples from antiquity fetching steep prices at auction today. Graff was fortunate enough to acquire some of these one-of-a-kind stones and has set them into captivating new jewelry pieces, including a brooch that can be separated into two smaller brooches or worn as a pendant. “These are exquisite pieces,” says Barguirdjian, noting that they’re “for the woman who is building a top-quality jewelry collection. Those who really understand the beauty of the art will want these special pieces.” “The beauty of a carved emerald is to enhance the color and hide the jardin,” says Gary Roskin, executive director of the International Colored Gemstone Association, referring to irregularities in color, known as inclusions (or jardin), which are more common in emeralds than in other precious gems due to their composition. “Emerald is the only gemstone where inclusions are described in a way to make them more appealing: ‘le jardin,’ French for ‘the garden.’” Indeed, inclusions can be considered an aspect of an emerald’s allure, as with the exotic trapiche emeralds that Tiffany & Co. recently featured in its Blue Book, which catalogues the brand’s most spectacular jewels each year. Trapiche emeralds have inclusions that extend from the center in six lines, creating a starlike effect. “Each inclusion is different,” says Kirtley. “They are part of the natural beauty of an emerald’s being.” While many of today’s emeralds continue to appear in classic settings with diamonds, some designers are pushing boundaries, offering modern motifs not typically associated with the emerald, in order to attract edgier customers. Such is the case with Italian designer Roberto Coin, who is releasing dramatic new designs in 2016. “The emerald now can be considered a very fashionable stone, in addition to its historical and natural high value,” says Coin. “Green is the color of the year.” OD
“Emeralds are unique in color and almost seem dimensional. You want green that you can dive right into—that mesmerizes you. That means a vivid, saturated, grassygreen color.” —Melvyn Kirtley, Chief Gemologist, Tiffany & Co.
FROM MINE TO MARKET
MINING & PROCESSING Emeralds are mined, often using hand tools, then cleaned, weighed, and sorted according to color and clarity.
SALE OF ROUGH GEMS Rough emeralds are sold through invitationonly auctions to cutters, gem experts, and other professionals, or via private sales to individual buyers.
CUTTING AND POLISHING Expert cutters inspect rough emeralds to determine the shape and size to be expected from each stone. After cutting, the emeralds are sent to polishers to be buffed and finished.
What to look for when buying an emerald.
CUT “Certain gems lend themselves to special cuts, but emeralds are always most beautiful in classic cuts, such as an emerald or cushion cut, which are faceted and extraordinary. But shape is a personal choice.” —Henri Barguirdjian, President and CEO, Graff Diamonds USA
“Inclusions [variations in color] in an emerald are natural. They are there because of the very structure of the stone, like a fingerprint of nature. We call the inclusions ‘gardens,’ and a beautiful garden is what makes each emerald unique.” —Douglas Hucker, CEO, American Gem Trade Association
ORIGIN “The challenge is to explain why some localities are more important than others. Traditionally, [when certain] localities are favored over others, it is simply because the finest-color emeralds have traditionally come from there. But there is no guarantee that just because your emerald comes from a specific place that it’s of the finest quality or color.” —Gary Roskin, Executive Director, International Colored Gemstone Association
SALE OF POLISHED GEMS Finished emeralds are offered for sale to jewelry houses, designers, and loose-stone suppliers.
SETTING After evaluating the emeralds’ color, cut, and size to determine the proper design, jewelers set the stones and create finished jewelry pieces.

SOURCE CODE As responsible sourcing becomes a hot topic with global industries, Gemfields makes strides with safety and quality issues and community building at its Kagem emerald mine. BY ROBERTA NAAS When I step off the plane in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, I’m struck by the stunning terrain of this landlocked country, which includes plateaus, grassy hills, and green valleys studded with waterfalls and tributaries of the Zambezi River, all of it home to an incredible range of wildlife. The area is also rich with copper, the country’s major export. But since the London-based company Gemfields—which supplies some of the most recognizable and respected names in fine jewelry, such as Tiffany & Co. and Fabergé—began operating Zambia’s Kagem emerald mine in 2008, emeralds have become an increasingly important feature of the country’s landscape and economy. The Kagem mine compound has the buzz of a small city, with quarters for workers and supervisors, dining facilities, gemstone washing and sorting stations, and the formidable security gates leading to the mine itself. As I peer into the pit mine from high above, the sprawling work area looks like a movie set, with trucks hauling tons of earth and rock to the pit’s edges until the stratum where the emeralds formed half a billion years ago is uncovered and handwork takes over. Emeralds are surprisingly brittle, so once the mine workers reach the layer of earth that cradles them, they use pickaxes, hand tools, and their bare
hands to carefully break away the black rock until a shimmer of green appears. While I watch, a miner removes a piece of shale, and inside is the most stunning raw emerald I have ever seen. Being one of the first people to touch something 500 million years old, to have the rock crumble away in your hands as you get a closer look at the green it protects, takes your breath away. The Kagem mine produces roughly 25 percent of the world’s supply of emeralds. That’s approximately 30 million carats of emerald and beryl (the mineral of which emerald is a variety) each year. Just a fraction of that yield—about 5 percent—becomes top-quality finished emeralds. When Gemfields took over operation of the 35-year-old Kagem mine (it owns 75 percent, with the Zambian government owning the rest), the company invested some $60 million in cleanup and safety efforts. According to CEO Ian Harebottle, the goal from the start was to make Kagem a top emerald producer while also establishing a new benchmark for responsible mining practices. “We brought in geology specialists, mining specialists, and sustainability experts,” he says. “We cleaned up the area and proposed a plan to not only make the mine profitable, which is important to the

government and the country, but also to set standards for emerald grading, for environmental replenishment, and for ethical, transparent mining.” (It’s a point of pride for Gemfields that no major reportable injury has occurred at the Kagem mine since the company took over.) To achieve these goals, Gemfields had a threeprong strategy. First was to make a capital investment substantial enough to achieve its lofty ambitions. Second was to develop a grading system for rough stones, with the aim of total transparency about the quality of gems going to market. And third was to make a long-term commitment to ethical and sustainable mining practices. The Gemfields grading system is the first of its kind in Zambia, where most emerald mining had previously been undertaken by a patchwork of small companies without uniform standards for quality. “By properly sorting and grading rough stones before they’re cut, we help the cutters and polishers in their buying process,” says Harebottle, whose goal is to increase consumer confidence in ethically sourced emeralds. “They can be confident about what they’re getting when they buy their lots at auction.” To follow through on its commitment to corporate responsibility, Gemfields is working with local organizations on a variety of initiatives. These include building the region’s first maternity hospital; constructing and supporting local elementary and secondary schools, including the area’s first high school; launching a sustainable-farming project to feed local families; and investing in reforestation. In addition, Gemfields has developed an exit strategy for its mining operations that emphasizes environmental sustainability. In the future, when it closes the Kagem mine (after the supply of emeralds is exhausted), the company plans to convert the deep pits into lakes stocked with fish. “Biodiversity is just as important as social responsibility and transparency,” Harebottle says. “The key is to commit to doing more than you are required and to constantly reassess.” Gemfields’ initiatives come at a time when ethical sourcing and corporate responsibility are buzzwords in many global industries, from agriculture to fossil fuels. “When you’re a large company, you’re under the spotlight,” Harebottle says. “This means we have to do more.” In other words, Gemfields’ focus on ethical emeralds is right on trend.

A Faena House penthouse apartment with a combined 22,500 square feet of interior and exterior space (including a 70-foot-long rooftop pool) sold for a record $60 million.
With its blue skies and crystal-clear waters, Miami has forever been a small piece of American paradise where even from its earliest days the motto seemed to be “dream big.” From the moment Henry Flagler built his luxurious Royal Palm Hotel and Carl Fisher hauled out an elephant to promote the new Miami Beach, Miami was in the business of making the fantastic happen. Despite NBA championships, Super Bowls, MTV Video Music Awards, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows, countless extravagant hotel openings, headline-making New Year’s Eve festivities, and party after party that would have made Flagler and Fisher proud, Miami never ceases to amaze. “In a nightlife-driven, celebrity-heavy town, each party was bigger than the next,” says celebrity photographer Seth Browarnik, who’s captured some of the greatest Miami moments for close to two decades. “Now with an expanded arts and culture scene, luxury brands and high-end real estate, there really is nothing better than Miami.” It’s always been a numbers game in the race for excellence, and turning heads in 2015 was the real estate market. A Faena House penthouse apartment with a combined 22,500 square feet of interior and exterior space (including a 70-foot-long rooftop pool) sold for a record $60 million. The hedge fund billionaire who purchased the pad broke the prior record set in 2012 of $47 million for a 30,000-square-
foot home in Indian Creek Village—the 36-home neighborhood with billionaire residents like Carl Icahn, Eddie Lampert, Norman Braman, and mutual fund mogul Charles Johnson, to name a few. Mathematically it’s about one quarter of South Florida’s billionaires. “The sale didn’t surprise me, and it shows that Miami’s real estate market is on the cusp of rivaling über-expensive markets such as New York and London,” says Dan Hechtkopf, director of luxury sales at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “The amazing lifestyle we live down here is not a secret. It’s only a matter of time before that record is broken.” It’s no wonder that billionaires, from Lloyd Blankfein to Leon Black and Len Blavatnik, are scooping up residences. Guys like Richard LeFrak and Barry Sternlicht aren’t just coming down to build hotels and residences anymore— they’re sticking around for the show, too. Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi just purchased two condo units for $10 million, while Mark Spitznagel, who founded hedge fund Universa Investments, makes his company one of 70 hedge and private equity funds calling Florida home. That lifestyle is what makes Miami tick. That’s why every new building now comes with almost unfathomable amenities. Gone are the days of gyms and spas being impressive.

By fall 2016, there will be a new kid in town— the $1 billion, 5.4 million-square-foot Brickell City Centre that welcomes brands like Valentino and Chopard, not to mention an East hotel. “With an overwhelming amount of retail sales coming from the part-time resident, visitor market, and growing business community, there’s no denying the ongoing need for shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations,” says Debora Overholt, senior retail director at Swire Properties, the company behind the complex. Just getting to the revamped Brickell or Miami Beach, Wynwood or any other neighborhood in town can stimulate the senses. When you are one of the 40.9 million yearly passengers at Miami International Airport, you feel the buzz instantly. And whether you’re zipping over the causeway in a McLaren P1 from The Collection, challenging the 55-foot VanDutch vessels parked on the Sunset Islands, or helicoptering into and from South Beach, however you arrive, wherever you shop or play, no matter where you choose to stay, it’s hard to not instantly realize the Magic City is indeed magical. Those who began building here more than a century ago saw the potential. The people building today are making those big dreams come true. OD

When beverage tycoon Stephen Levin and his German wife, Petra, planned a move to Miami Beach a couple of years ago to be closer to Levin’s business headquarters, they knew they wanted a very particular kind of house. In possession of one of the most significant collections of art in Florida, the couple needed a dwelling that would not only suit the way they live, but also aptly accommodate the quality and volume of their collection of paintings and sculptures—which includes pieces by Pop masters like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg; works by graffiti artists and heavyweights of the ’80s such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Anselm Kiefer; and sculptures by contemporary icons like Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Anish Kapoor, and Frank Stella. They found what they were looking for in Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez’s 22,000-square-foot Ralph Choeff–designed manse overlooking Biscayne Bay on North Bay Road and offered him $30 million—the highest price paid for a house on the Beach at the time. The property was a perfect fit for a man who sold Gold Coast Beverage Distributors reportedly for over $1 billion. Inside the estate, everything is perfectly manicured, and nothing is left to chance—the shades close automatically to prevent the sun’s tropical rays from damaging works by Banksy and Damien Hirst that are just steps from the window. Months later, the Levins have settled in with their four dogs—Tui, Tasha, Charlie, and Chicco—and Ocean Drive got an exclusive inside look at their extraordinary art collection and stunning interiors, which Petra pulled together in short order. Read on for what the generous and gracious couple had to say about their art, their lifestyle, and the charities they support both locally and around the country.

We just like looking at them. Some people like art that’s tough; I’m not interested in tough art. I like art that pleases us, that pleases our eye, that’s uplifting.”
What appealed to you most about this house before you bought it? Stephen Levin: We saw pictures of this home when it was for sale, and a friend said he could arrange for us to see it. We saw it through [our real estate agent] but we could not reach terms, and it was taken off the market. When it was off the market, Petra and I came to terms with Alex [Rodriguez] and purchased the home. Petra Levin: It was several things: the modern design, the size of the home, the footage on the bay, and the gorgeous view—having almost 300 feet on the bay was very appealing—and also the view of downtown Miami. SL: We have a 70-foot Ferretti boat. The architect, Ralph Choeff, is so talented. I like that there’s a strong indoor-outdoor connection with his work, and also that it’s modern, but warm. SL: There’s a very open quality. It’s an open house, yet it preserves our ability to display our art collection. We didn’t meet [Choeff] when we bought the home; we met him later. When we purchased it, we did make some changes. Was it challenging making decisions for the interiors? SL: Basically, Petra said she wanted something, and I said yes or no—it worked very well that way. Our tastes are the same; we love
contemporary things. With a modern home, it was easy when you both have the same contemporary tastes, and our art collection is modern and contemporary. Which is your favorite room? SL: My den. I like the light and looking out at the water. The lime green sofas in that room are great. PL: They are the only chairs that are colorful. In general, I wanted the interiors to be neutral to let the art shine. But because [Stephen’s den] is the man cave, I wanted to have a little bit of color there. Did you bring anything here from your Palm Beach house, or did you start fresh? SL: We started fresh. A lot of the furniture came from New York. We bought a number of pieces from Hudson Furniture. PL: And we finished in a record time—five months. What did you preserve in the home? SL: The vast majority of the home was preserved. We did change the entrance, we changed the front courtyard, we removed the batting cage. But I kept Alex Rodriguez’s urinal in my bathroom. PL: You and Alex have something in common. He built a beautiful home, and that’s why we fell in love with it. What did you do with Alex’s built-in batting cage?

“Good art is getting harder and harder to find with so many collectors and museums.” —stephen levin
PL: We took the door out and redesigned the whole room into three different areas. We brought the gym that was [in the freestanding structure on the back lawn] upstairs, and we created a little gallery. Past it is the managing office for the people who work here. [Originally] there was no storage, and so one side is now all storage. We left the original lights from the batting cage, though. How many pieces of art do you own? SL: Around 250. When did you start collecting? SL: About 20 years ago. I sold my first company and had money. When you’re building companies—and I’m an entrepreneur, I’ve developed a number of companies—you tend to make the bulk of your money when you sell it. But I’m still an active businessman. Do you buy most of your art from dealers or auctions, or do you go to fairs? SL: We originally bought it at fairs and from dealers, and now we have a private art consulting firm that represents us. We use a professional advisor and negotiator to advise us on our purchases. Do you regularly go to Art Basel in Miami Beach? PL: We go every year. SL: We go to the one in Switzerland, too. PL: And we go to Frieze in London. SL: Good art is getting harder and harder to find with so many collectors and museums. You have pieces by Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Urs Fischer, Keith Haring…. SL: We also have works by Banksy, Damien Hirst, George Condo, [Andy] Warhol, and Jacques Lipchitz. We display all our art; we do not keep it in storage, so therefore we constantly have pieces at auction as we require new space in the home. We always have, at any given time, three, four, five pieces at auction. [We also have] a

Miró sculpture—it’s called Conch Shell—but actually it’s very Freudian if you look. Being surrounded by art is almost like being surrounded by a bunch of interesting friends that make things engaging. PL: Some people say, “Oh, you should have a gallery,” but we like to live with our art. This house is great for your art collection, but how does it suit your lifestyle in other ways? SL: We don’t have big parties. We have another home in Stowe, Vermont, but this is our primary home, and here we’re really more private. Now that our kids are grown, we watch over our dogs, although we’ve been active in charities in Palm Beach, and we’re active in charities here. Which charities are you involved with? SL: The University of Miami, Mount Sinai Hospital, and ICA—those are the local charities. There are others, too. We’re active with the Caron Foundation, the University of Pennsylvania, and MorseLife in West Palm. Now that you’re here, what do you like best about living in Miami? SL: What it offers—the sports, the restaurants, and the vitality of the city. It’s dynamic. PL: Everything has changed. It’s very international—the art—there’s so much more going on in Miami. SL: We’ve made wonderful friends, and we enjoy it here. [It’s] just a whole new world for us coming from Palm Beach, which is a wonderful place, but a very small-town environment. I come from a small town—Reading, Pennsylvania—and Miami Beach has a small-town quality, too. So it’s a great city for us to live in. OD

Island in the Sun
Fisher island’s exclusive Palazzo Del Sol readies For its grand entrance into the south Florida luxury living boom. by robyn a. friedman
There are plenty of reasons why the world’s uber-rich flock to Fisher Island. After all, the 216-acre tropical paradise off Miami Beach—accessible only by ferry or private yacht—is one of the most exclusive islands in the world, with its own private club, a luxurious spa, world-class tennis, a beach club, a private day school, and an aviary with exotic birds. It even has its own zip code. Not to mention the views. But now, the world’s elite has another reason to come to Fisher Island: Palazzo Del Sol, a lavish 47-unit ultra-luxury condominium that is the first new construction on the island since 2007. The demand for new construction is so strong on the island that nearly 60 percent of Palazzo Del Sol is already spoken for—including two of the project’s three penthouses. “Fisher Island is a unique place,” says Heinrich von Hanau, chief executive officer of Fisher Island Holdings, the project’s developer. “You have all the amenities on the island, but if you want to enjoy South Beach, it’s at your fingertips—only a seven-minute ferry ride to the mainland.” Von Hanau engaged Miami-based architect Kobi Karp and Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea to design Palazzo Del Sol as a private oasis, with lush grounds, outdoor living spaces, and continued on page 302

“IT’S LIke A SANcTuAry, A PLAce THAT PrOvIDeS yOu wITH AMeNITIeS HArD TO FIND ANywHere eLSe IN THe wOrLD.”—bernard lackner six-star services. Karp says his design was inspired by Mediterranean Italianate architecture, with clean lines and terraces with multilevel gardens and pools that evoke properties found in Tuscany. Construction on the 10-story Palazzo Del Sol began in the spring of 2014, and completion is slated for the first quarter of 2016. The three- to seven-bedroom units range from 3,800 to 9,800 square feet and include features such as spacious outdoor terraces, private elevator entrances, Boffi kitchens and master baths, floor-to-ceiling windows, and Lualdi interior doors and hardware. Amenities at the project include a theater, hair and makeup salon, state-of-the-art fitness center designed by The Wright Fit, a Kidville-designed children’s playroom, professional fur storage, private massage rooms, a business center, and two

lobbies, complete with a butler-serviced aperitivo bar. “Palazzo Del Sol is the first true full-service building on Fisher Island,” says Dora Puig, director of sales and marketing for Palazzo Del Sol. “We’re really taking it up to another level.” Fisher Island has long been an oasis for celebrities, athletes, and entrepreneurs from more than 45 countries. The island offers eight dining venues, a day school, post office, full service salon, and the fivestar Spa Internazionale. The island’s tennis center is one of the few places in the world where players could enjoy four different surfaces, including grass and red clay. “It’s like a sanctuary, a place that provides you with amenities hard to find anywhere else in the world,” says Bernard Lackner, CEO of the Fisher Island Club. “You are disconnected from the hustle and bustle of Miami, and so it feels like you are far away, but at the same time you are close.” In 2013, the Fisher Island Club completed a $70 million renovation of its amenities that included upgrades to the Fisher Island Club Hotel & Resort, golf clubhouse, tennis center, spa, salon, beach club, private yacht marinas, Island Market, and Vanderbilt Mansion. The goal was “to restore Fisher Island and bring it back to current standards in terms of quality and membership expectations,” says Lackner. In May, the Fisher Island
Club even entered the realm of fragrance, introducing a signature perfume called “1936.” The scent hearkens back to the days when William K. Vanderbilt II began building his mansion on the island and reflects the opulence of the resort, with bergamot, tea, orange blossom, coriander, jasmine, and rose tones. Current pricing at Palazzo Del Sol ranges from $6.5 million to $35 million. In June, the developer announced that a 6,644-square-foot penthouse, listed at $27.2 million, was purchased by attorney Jim Ferraro. That unit’s features include 18-foot ceilings, four bedrooms, four and one-half baths, a Signature Boffi kitchen and baths, appliances from Gaggenau, Sub-Zero, Dornbracht, Duravit, and an expansive private rooftop space with a pool. This was the second of the three penthouses to go under contract. The first sold for $35 million to an undisclosed Russian buyer. The remaining penthouse is listed for $27 million, von Hanau says. Next up for Fisher Island, according to Puig, is Palazzo Della Luna, a sister building to Palazzo Del Sol. It will have a world-class spa that both buildings can access. Sales are expected to start next year. 1 Fisher Island Dr., Fisher Island, 305-535-6071; palazzodelsol.com OD

Agent Nancy Batchelor calls this $16.9 million double-unit penthouse suite in the luxe Capobella building on Millionaires Row in Miami Beach “a house in the sky with the best views in the city.” The 8,000-squarefoot residence (which is actually two apartments combined) at 5025 Collins Avenue features two full kitchens, eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, water views from each room, and a 360-degree wraparound terrace with magnificent views of the ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the city. Plus, the unit includes two private elevators, separate staff quarters on the fifth floor, 10 parking spaces, and three poolside cabanas.

Palm Island’s 40 Palm Avenue, set for completion next summer, is the pinnacle of seaside magnificence. The sleek 10,000-square-foot residence, listed at $24 million, will feature 100 feet of direct waterfront, a double-height great room, a gourmet kitchen, a home theater, and an oversize outdoor pavilion with a barbecue area and an infinity pool. The lush landscaping, a highlight of the property, includes a variety of local and imported palms. “The key here was to create a clean, contemporary design without losing the comfort of living on an island,” says interior designer and builder Marisol Pinto. “Each corner of the house has a beautiful view and delicate finishing.” Dora Puig, Luxe Living Realty, 407 Lincoln Road, Ste. 9D, Miami Beach, 305-535-6005; dorapuig.com
When Florida pioneer William J. Matheson built a coconut plantation on Key Biscayne in the 1920s, he simultaneously constructed a home for himself on the finest parcel of land the island had to offer. The historic mansion at 775 South Mashta Drive is on the market for $55 million. Rebuilt in 1991, the five-story, twoacre estate—situated on a private peninsula with 2,000 feet of water frontage and a private yacht harbor— has six bedrooms, eight full baths, 360-degree water and city views, and a dazzling pool and gazebo. Says listing agent Jorge Uribe of ONE Sotheby’s, “This is one of the most exciting pieces of property to come on the market on the entire Eastern seaboard.” Jorge Uribe, ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, 1430 S.

Two carriage houses, a large garage, a workshop, and a two-bedroom guest house surround the two-story main residence. The spectacular old-world kitchen complex, which agent Valaree Byrne calls “the heart of the house,” features a vaulted brick ceiling, a spacious family room, a seven-seat wet bar, and a wine cellar.

Affluent buyers move to Sunny Isles Beach for privacy, extensive amenities, and the beach in an exclusive resort setting. While Brickell and Edgewater were slowly coming alive in 2012 and 2013, Sunny Isles was leading the ultra-high-end of the current real estate construction boom and today is showcasing the fastest growth of any city in Miami-Dade County with property values up 16.7 percent. Eight residential projects comprising 1,196 units were approved or under construction in 2014, including Jade Signature, while at least five more projects began construction this year or will soon, with three Sunny Isles towers—Regalia, the Mansions at Acqualina, and Château Beach Residences—already completed this cycle. By the time Art Basel hits Miami Beach this December, construction of Fortune International’s luxury condo tower Jade Signature, designed by architectural demigods Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, will have reached approximately the 24th floor of its full 57-floor height glory, according to Sandra Chartouni, the project’s sales director. “Construction is going fabulously, with topping off in approximately the third quarter of next year,” she says. Sales of the six sky villas—duplex ‘homes in the sky’ between 6,300 and 6,700 interior square feet that start at $13 million—and the two 9,000-plus interior square foot penthouses that top them, all designed by the comparably prestigious interior architect Pierre-Yves Rochon, will have formally launched. To use a clichéd, but accurate analogy, the building is a Jade Signature Sky Villa are duplex “homes in the sky” that start at $13 million.
piece of art in itself in an increasingly art-conscious metropolis. Among many touches, convex and concave balcony columns eschew the repetition of area condos. “They’re the project’s signature items,” says Chartouni. Between them, the tower, in the shape of a parallelogram, is intermittently transparent, with crystal clear views of the ocean to match. With sales working their way up the building a couple dozen floors ahead of construction, the Sky Villas go to market first. Although somewhat similar, each has a slightly different floor plan. To compensate for the additional desirability of the four end units, the middle two have an absolutely massive 3,900 square feet of balcony space. It’s through these and similar units, entirely faced in glass with few lateral walls, that the building’s translucence will really shine through. Immediately above, the 55th and 56th floors hold the two full-floor penthouses, with the upper one extending into a smaller second level separated into east and west bedroom wings. Each one will have at least 5,200 square feet of terrace space. If you’re wondering what the cost for living the high life is, penthouse pricing has yet to be released. With the podium out of the way, and Herzog & de Meuron’s efforts at transparency on all levels, drivers turning in off of Collins Avenue will probably be able to see a peek of the ocean before descending below it, something every ‘house’ on the water should include. 17070 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305-432-9824; jadesignature.com OD The residences at Jade Signature will offer crystal clear views of the ocean.

At 57 stories, Jade Signature will be sky high, one of the tallest condo towers in Sunny Isles Beach, but it will also reach very low depths. In a dramatic engineering move, the parking podium has been buried underground in a multilevel garage 50 feet deep, below park-like grounds that have been designed by Raymond Jungles. The garage was “the crucial point of construction and not a drop of water has come through” despite the building’s oceanfront setting, says sales director Sandra Chartouni.

eminent domain Style Statement Dutch designer Marcel Wanders’ new object created for the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades exhibition. Available in two versions: one in classic Louis Vuitton tones, the other in what Wanders calls “Ocean Drive inspiration,” an exclusive turquoise leather that honors Miami’s architectural heritage.
Louis Vuitton seeks inspiration from south florida with an exclusive showcase at designmiami/.
These days Louis Vuitton, best known for its vast range of luxurious goods and immediately recognizable brand, is at the epicenter of the luxury market. But early on, the brand originally built its reputation on elegant luggage, like massive handmade trunks designed for passengers traveling in the first-class cabins of transatlantic ships and steam trains. This month, Vuitton is unveiling a collaboration that nods to that heritage, but is also implicitly innovative: a unique and portable leather chair that’s both artistic and functional, created by the acclaimed designer Marcel Wanders. The chair is the latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades series, in which designers work with the iconic company to create an item that blends the company’s core values of travel, best-in-class materials, and craftsmanship with their own artistic vision. (“Objets Nomades” is French for “nomadic objects.”) Originally introduced at DesignMiami/ in 2012, the ongoing venture features a cross section of some of the world’s top names in furniture and product design,
including designers like Maarten Baas, Patricia Urquiola, and Damien Langlois-Meurinne. The objects typically have hidden, little Vuitton details—a subtle LV on a folding chair by Raw Edges, crisp metal hardware punctuating Gwenaël Nicolas’s day bed and lamp—and, in another link to the brand, usually incorporate supple leather. The resulting pieces are unusual, creative, and understandably, extremely collectible. Wanders’ piece, unveiled this month as a world exclusive in the exhibition space in Vuitton’s sleek Design District boutique, is portable. It is also easily transformed into several different utilitarian shapes, from ottoman to chaise longue, with an adjustment of its three, fluidly shaped sections. Each piece is quietly connected with a buckled tan leather Louis Vuitton strap, along the lines of what you might expect to see on a handbag or carry-on duffel. For Wanders, working with Vuitton has been an ideal partnership. “They know how to present the work,” he continued on page 312

eminent domain Style Statement says. “It’s a company with a wonderful history and a capacity to create beautiful things.” Wanders sees the collaboration as an ideal blend of both his and Vuitton’s sensibility. “Making designs is like making babies: you make something new, with a new personality,” he rather vividly puts it. “The way we do this as people, we have a father and a mother. You make sure the father and the mother give their best genes to the baby, and that way, you get something that both the father and mother can both recognize as their own, but that is unique. In this case, of course, I am the mother; obviously, I consider Vuitton to be one of the best fathers you can ever have.” The chair, which took three years to produce, will be displayed exclusively in Miami through February 10. It is available in two color options: a

rich brown and a shade of turquoise inspired by— where else?—Miami. “This color has a bit of local character,” says Wanders of the hue that was informed, according to the artist, by details on classic South Beach buildings. “It’s a beautiful color and the only city you could—and should—use it in is Miami.” The piece is designed to work indoors and outside, making it particularly well suited for display in South Florida. “It’s a piece that’s nicer in the sunshine,” he says. “Since Miami has a lot of it, I see it there really well.” The “Objets Nomades” exhibition will be open to the public from December 3 through February 10, 2016; call Louis Vuitton’s Design District boutique to schedule a private appointment.

THIS YEAR’S DESIGN MIAMI/ VISIONARY AwARD wINNER, YVES BéHAR, KNOwS wHAT YOu wANT, EVEN IF YOu DON’T. by marcelle sussman fischler Even without a crystal ball, design visionary and entrepreneur Yves Béhar, 48, can see the future. “We constantly look at what is possible, or what would be delightful, for people to do,” says Béhar, this year’s recipient of the Design Visionary award at the Design Miami/ fair. The CEO, founder, and chief designer of the 16-year-old San Francisco– and New York–based Fuseproject, Béhar designs “from the inside out,” concerned not just with look and style, but capabilities. His forward-thinking products include the sparkling-water maker SodaStream Source; Jawbone Up, the first fitness tracker worn on the wrist; and the Herman Miller Sayl office chair. August Smart Lock, the next generation home-entry system that Béhar co-created, launched in October. “Design is business,” Béhar says, and it is about “disruption and creation.” A social activist, he uses the power of design “to transform lives.” A global forum and marketplace for modern and contemporary design, Design Miami/ showcases 20thand 21st-century furniture, lighting and objets d’art. The fair’s latest Design Visionary award celebrates Béhar’s vision and includes an exhibit of his work. Currently, Béhar is working as a design consultant with Spring, a business boot camp, founded by the Nike Foundation, USAID, and Britain’s Department for International Development,

Yves Béhar designed the Swarovski Voyage Chandelier, which is composed of 52,000 crystals and was originally displayed at New York’s JFK Airport.
geared toward helping girls in Africa and Asia. His “One Laptop Per Child” project delivered more than 3 million laptops to impoverished children. Half a million pairs of his Ver Bien eyeglasses are distributed annually to underprivileged Mexican schoolchildren. Part of what influences and inspires Béhar is observing what interests his three children—ages 18 months, five, and eight—and watching them play. “Life comes into work and work comes into life, and it is very fluid,” he says. Passionate about health care system designs, including wearables, to “disrupt the status quo” and make health “much more personal,” Béhar also says he’s excited about robots “helping us to accomplish simple tasks in our lives; robots that are pretty and look more like furniture than humanoids.” At Design Miami/, Béhar will be joined by visionaries from all across the world. Latin design is strong at the fair this year; R & Company features a rare jacaranda wood bench by the late Modernist pioneer Joaquim Tenreiro. Honoring design history, Galleria Rossella Colombari has re-created an interior in the style of Caracas’s Villa Planchart. Large-scale design and architectural components are also highlighted; monumental architectural structures shrink into playful functional pieces for the home in Naihan Li’s “I Am a Monument” series at Beijing-based Gallery ALL.
“Life comes into work and work comes into life, and it is very fluid,” says Yves Béhar.
Also trending is the juxtaposition of steel with hide. At Secondome, Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari’s Body Building collection softens its hard edge with pink upholstery. Hard-steel faces and soft-leather straps adorn vintage watches at the Le Collection’Heure, Design Miami’s/ first watch gallery. Design Miami/ takes place December

Evergreen Ideas BY CHARLYNE VARKONYI SCHAUB
“These colors are nice to use even without a holiday theme,” says Samuel Amoia, a rising interior designer with a bevy of star projects on his plate, including the Indochine restaurant on Miami Beach, two large waterfront homes in Palm Beach and Golden Beach, and the new DeLorenzo Gallery on New York’s Madison Avenue, as well as a Japanese teahouse in Sydney, Australia. “Metallics can blend with natural fabrics and materials. I like using green and anything red is striking and strong.” Although Amoia typically uses faded colors, he likes to make the design pop with strong hues in accessories. For the holidays, he suggests creating a tablescape with two green vases and gold bowls in varying sizes filled with red flowers. Amoia, who has worked with hotelier Ian Schrager and interior designer Stephen Sills, has teamed with his brother, sculptor Dominic Amoia, to create limited edition sculptural furniture and lighting of malachite, amethyst, and hand-dyed plasters for his new Amoia Studio brand. samuelamoia.com OD
The Tourbillons crystal vase has “a beautiful jewel tone and quality that would look sculptural and stunning in the light.” Lalique ($6,950). Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-537-5150, lalique.com
One of Amoia’s favorites is the 25-inch diameter Eros metal bowl that “would be excellent on a tabletop; the sculptural shape can be used with traditional or modern design during or after the holidays.” NIBA Home ($3,975). Miami Design District, 39 NE 39th St., 305-573-1939; nibahome.com
The Pedro Pedestal table with lacquered glass top and metal base is “a beautiful, bold color with geometric design that would look perfect next to any sofa.” Roche Bobois ($1,125). 450 Biltmore Way, Coral Gables, 305-444-1017; roche-bobois.com
An emerald tortoise square tray made of wood with a lacquer finish has a “nice under-designed, clean-lined feel that would look good on a table or counter and would be a fashionable way to store keys or to get rid of clutter quickly when company comes.” Oscar de la Renta Home ($595). oscardelarenta.com Lady B. Armchair with wool upholstery has “a cool sculptural element” and looks comfortable as well. Roche Bobois ($2,070). 450 Biltmore Way, Coral Gables, 305-444-1017; roche-bobois.com

RED, GREEN, AND GOLD AREN’T JUST FOR CHRISTMAS. RISING DESIGN STAR SAMUEL AMOIA DEMONSTRATES HOW THIS TRIO CAN PUT THE MAGIC INTO THE MAGIC CITY.
eminent domain the Big deal The LogisTics of BaseL All roads lead to Miami, but some are bumpier than others. anyThing goes: “Work is coming in from all around the world,” says Leo Valencia. “It comes in any way imaginable. People bring stuff in their suitcases, on ships, on their private yachts. Most commonly, things are fown or driven in.” aLL hands on deck: “During Basel, I hire up to 20 contractors from around the world. If I had 1,000 guys, I could put them to work, but that would be a logistical nightmare. Every gallery in Miami needs two men on the second and third of December, and then again on the eighth and ninth.”
“When moving art, you have to be a trucker and a museum professional,” says Leo Valencia, here on Miami Beach with Fernando Botero’s Maternity sculpture, which his team installed (inset).
The Big Schlep LogicArt’s Leo VaLencia tALks the ins And outs of moving mAsterpieces to Art BAseL in miAmi BeAch And Around the gLoBe. by hunter braithwaite Even though it’s only early October, Leo Valencia is having a busy day. “The minute one [art fair] ends, people make plans for the next,” says Valencia, director of LogicArt Fine Arts Services, which moves, transports, and installs fine art around the globe. “The Germans call me in January.” That art you see on the walls of the convention centers, hotels, tents, and Miami’s best homes? Somehow it got there in one piece. Valencia and his team travel
the world, shepherding art through customs, and installing it in penthouses, museums, or even on Brickell Avenue. For the Hialeahraised Valencia, this comes naturally: His father, who is Colombian, has spent 35 years as a customs broker. Valencia himself got involved in 2002 when Art Basel first came to town. He knew his way around a piece of art, could swing a hammer, and found that the work was a quick way to make cash. After detours through New
York and Paris, where he worked at the Louvre, Valencia returned to Miami to start LogicArt. It goes without saying that art has to be moved carefully. That means temperaturecontrolled trucks (industry standard storage temperature is between 68 and 74 degrees) equipped with dehumidifiers and air ride suspension systems. “We custom make everything to spec—crates with cooling systems, with pneumatic cushions, and with spring-loaded devices,”
says Valencia. “There are crates that can be $15,000.” And that’s for a comparatively stable oil painting. Each piece brings its own requirements. A work by Rashid Johnson (who had a large show at MAM in 2012) can easily pull six figures at auction, but is often made using soap and wax. “If you left that painting outside in the sun, it wouldn’t look the same,” says Valencia. Locally, he works with institutions such as the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and the Bass Museum of Art. Recently, he installed a group of Hans Hoffman paintings at the Frost Art Museum. And then there are the private clients, like Jorge
Pérez’s Related Group. The last client resulted in one of Valencia’s most monumental jobs. Last Basel, LogicArt was commissioned to install a gargantuan sculpture by the Argentine artist Julio Le Parc outside of 444 Brickell. The sculpture was a grid of approximately 40 steel posts shooting 24 feet into the sky before interlocking in a seemingly weightless kinetic swirl. “Seemingly” is the operative word: Each post weighed several thousand pounds and required a separate truck to transport it from New York. His crew labored for 60 straight hours, finally completing the installation for the openingnight festivities. “It was brutal,” Valencia recalls. “It went off without a hitch, but it nearly killed us.” Hence, art handling’s basic truth: “It’s not easy work,” he says. “When moving artwork, you have to be a trucker and a museum professional. You have to be educated, and you have to be brute.” logicart miami.com OD

Up in the Air
There’s no beTTer view of paradise Than from high above. here, celebriTy phoTographer and world red eye owner Seth Browarni breaks from The red carpeT and leTs his drone do The Talking.
“I’ve lived in Miami my entire life; I was born and raised here as a fourth-generation Miami Beach resident. Both my grandfather and great-grandfather helped sculpt this city by building and owning some of its first hotels. “I started out as a promoter handing out flyers for Liquid and Bar Room; at the same time, I was the first photographer Chris Paciello and Ian Schrager allowed to shoot inside Liquid, Bar Room, and the Delano hotel. I have seen it all. At that time, taking photos behind the velvet rope was forbidden. It was left to the imagination what actually went on inside the club. “Back in 1998, I was shooting with a Nikon Coolpix 800 digital camera. Now we use a very different type of technology, in the case of this photo, a drone. We have applied for a Section 333 Exemption from the FAA and will be one of the first in the state of Florida to receive it,
allowing us to fly them legally! “I love when I can be creative while I’m shooting; I am always trying my best to stay current and keep up with the changes and growth of technology. For this shot—and all other aerial photos—it takes somebody who really knows what they are doing. Flying and controlling the drone is the easy part, but [the secret to an unforgettable photo is] about having a good eye to capture the moment. This shot was taken as some sunbathers were relaxing at the pool of the Mondrian. It’s classic Miami Beach. Isn’t this what everyone who comes here wants to do? “I think drone usage really allows photographers to get a different perspective. But it will only take one person not following the laws of flying below 400 feet to ruin it for everybody. Drones can do much more good than [harm] when put in the right hands. But like the saying goes, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!” OD
