LVMH Trains Fund-raising Power on Battling Sickle Cell Disease

SCALING UP: A crowd of 400 gathered at the Palais Brongniart for the sixth edition of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s annual Dîner des Maisons Engagées.
“We believe in actions that are lasting, in actions that demonstrate sense and solidarity,” declared Chantal Gaemperle, human resources and synergies director for the group, referring to the broad range of organizations and institutions supported by LVMH businesses. Gaemperle and group managing director Toni Belloni were the evening’s hosts.

The charity gala drew executives from around 30 of the luxury group’s vast stable of high-end labels, along with actors, television personalities and singing stars including Jain. It raised funds for the pediatric hospital Robert-Debré and its research into sickle cell anemia, one of the most common genetic conditions in France, and also prevalent in Africa. It also brought support to Kelina, Flora Coquerel’s nonprofit organization geared toward young mothers and their children in Benin.

Taking in the cavernous space and its gilded ceiling, Dikom Bakang-Tonje, cofounder of Dear Muesli, an organic cereal company, said he jumped at the invitation to attend a gala dinner for the first time.

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Tessa Thompson Hosts Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale

The Versace Mansion — known now as Villa Casa Casuarina — opened its doors Thursday night for the annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series finale party, this year hosted by Tessa Thompson.
“This is my first Basel and it is so fantastic to be here,” Thompson said, before presenting the competition grand prize to Erik Nieminen.
The actress — “dressed as a loofah — a Marc Jacobs loofah by the way, so, don’t play” — was joined by Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Devon Windsor, Sasha Lane, Shaun Ross, Kevin Garnett, Garrett Neff, Chloe Wise, Andrew Warren, Gaïa Matisse and more for the party, which celebrated the arts program which highlights emerging artists and gives them a platform to display their work, in partnership with Artsy.
“I love being here because it’s an opportunity to discover talent, which means so much to me,” Thompson said.

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: CR Women 2019 Launch Party

The launch for the second annual CR Fashion Book calendar hit a minor snag on Thursday, mere hours before the glam beachside party was set to begin: the calendars in question were lost on the highway somewhere en route to Miami.
“Unfortunately our calendars were on their way to Miami today on the truck, and the guy had a little bit of an issue on the way and the calendars couldn’t make it to the party,” said Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, inside the tent at the Faena where dinner was about to begin. “So we had to have someone from our office take a flight at 5:00, who is just arriving now in half an hour with 70 calendars in her bag, because we wanted everyone to see it. So that was a little bit of a drama today.”
But what would Miami be without a little drama? That vibe was what the CR team was hoping to tap into, in deciding to launch the calendar in Miami this year instead of New York.
“Miami has a different crowd from New York, than from everywhere, so we thought it would be good,” Roitfeld said.
He was joined by Paris and Nicky Hilton, Hilary Rhoda, Winnie

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: The Surf Lodge Toasts Ashley Longshore and Brandon Boyd

“When Jayma [Cardoso] and Surf Lodge asked me to come down here I was like, ‘f–k yea, let’s do this!”
New Orleans-based artist Ashley Longshore was in town for a celebratory dinner at the Surf Lodge’s Art Basel Miami Beach pop-up, hosted simultaneously with a dinner celebrating Incubus singer Brandon Boyd’s exhibition of artwork. Longshore had just come from an event for her collaboration with Gucci in London, and had arrived in town with a bit of a role reversal.
“I don’t have any art down here because literally all of my inventory is almost sold out,” she said. “I’ve been buying art all day. I love all of them, and honestly I was speed buying,” she added. “I bought like seven pieces today, sculptures and paintings, from Scope and also Aqua. I love Aqua; I love the intimacy of it. I’m not a big fan of gallerists. I always have fun when I buy down here because I love to negotiate and make them give up their percentages and make sure the artist gets paid — because I’m all about the artist.”
Guests sat down to a communal passed dinner, the table sprinkled with coasters printed with Longshore’s artwork: “Feminism Is a Real

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Brandon Boyd and the Hero’s Journey

When the Surf Lodge asked Brandon Boyd if he was interested in coming to Miami during Art Basel to decorate their pop-up at The Confidante with his artwork, the Los Angeles-based painter-singer wasn’t immediately familiar with the Montauk hot spot.
“I mentioned it to friends and they were like, oh, they’re cool. Do it,” said Boyd.
And so he did. In addition to bringing some of his existing works to town, Boyd created a few new pieces for the exhibition.
“I go into painting and songwriting the same way, where I have almost no intention other than just jump into the deep end, and don’t tread water and just sink,” he said during a celebratory dinner in his honor Thursday night. “It’s a creative process probably not unlike someone else’s; mine feels formless, so the paintings are kind of formless. I go in and just let my hand move and the brush move — it’s spontaneous. All of the things I’ve been attracted to in my life, whether it’s music, painting, surfing, they’re spontaneous and there are no breaks. You adapt to your instincts.”
Boyd referenced the work of sociologist Joseph Campbell, who published a theory of the archetypal hero’s journey as reflected through

Grammy Nominations 2019: H.E.R., Kendrick Lamar, SZA and ‘Shallow’

Could Lady Gaga win big twice in 2019?
Just one day after being nominated for a best actress Golden Globe for her role in “A Star Is Born,” Gaga’s marquee song from the movie, “Shallow,” has gained eyes from the Recording Academy.
The Grammy nominations were unveiled on Friday morning, and “Shallow” snagged nominations for the record of the year and song of the year accolades. This is the first year the awards show has nominated eight artists per category instead of five — no doubt to accommodate the stream of new music being released daily.
H.E.R., Donald Glover and Janelle Monae were among the top contenders for this year. Brooklyn-based H.E.R. received nominations for best new artist, best R&B performance for her track with Daniel Caesar “Best Part,” best R&B song, best R&B album and best new artist. “This Is America,” one of the most talked-about songs and music videos of this year, gained nods for best music video, best rap/sung performance and song and record of the year. Monae, whose album “Dirty Computer” has already landed in the number-one spot on numerous end-of-year-best lists, might walk away the winner of album of the year, or music video of the

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: The Haas Brothers Have a (Mathematical) Formula

While the art community in Miami has swelled this week thanks to Art Basel Miami Beach and Design Miami/, the Haas Brothers have been in town for a few weeks. The Los Angeles-based artists — twins Nikolai and Simon Haas — have been busy installing their first solo museum exhibition, which opened at the Bass Museum this week. The show, “Ferngully,” serves as a survey of their work created over the past 10 years.
The designers work at the intersection of design and art. Their newest pieces are plant life rendered using a beading operating system that Simon has been developing over the past few years. The exploration is rooted in cellular automata, a subset of fractal mathematics. “Beads are units, so it’s possible to program them. So these are all programmed shapes. The person making them acts like hardware,” Simon explained of the process, which has so far been used to create three beaded tree sculptures and a patch of colorful velveteen cacti. The resulting objects look realistic despite their whimsical colors and materials.
“My idea is that this is an analog to how nature builds itself. I wrote my own version of it. Really like how cells are on the

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Karaoke Night at Casa Tua

You never know who will show up for karaoke.
At exclusive members club Casa Tua on Wednesday night, there were plenty of names floating around: Will Smith was rumored to be circling the block, asleep in the back of his car. (He was also the supposed host of the evening, but he never made it. So much for “Welcome to Miami.”) Serena Williams was already in the room, dining following the launch of her pop-up shop at Faena Bazaar. Leonardo DiCaprio came up the back entrance around midnight, donning a black hoodie and baseball cap. Led by a handler, DiCaprio parted the crowd as he made his way over to greet Williams and her table, before he posted up near the corner with a friend. Nearby two young women turned the flash on their iPhones to capture photos of one another, illuminating DiCaprio in the process, and the notoriously camera-shy actor fluidly pulled up his hoodie, shielding himself from exposure.
Somewhere in the crowd, Bono was being serenaded by the likes of Caroline Vreeland, who chose to croon Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab.” Paris Hilton, freshly single and back at Art Basel Miami Beach (her happy place, might we say), danced with Prince Alexander von Fürstenberg,

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Paddle8 Bowling Night

Friends of Paddle8 were welcomed into the basement bowling alley of the Edition Hotel Wednesday night for a bowling party to let off some steam, have drinks and pick up a printed T-shirt while they were at it. Ellie Goulding and her camera-shy fiancé Caspar Jopling were there, as was Princess Eugenie (no photos please). Jeremy Kost and Richie Rose hung out on one of the couches as partygoers sipped passionfruit margaritas and tried their luck at a strike.

Ground Control Wants to ‘Bring Parisians Back to the Champs-Elysées’

PARIS — Denis Legat and chef Stéphane Jégo didn’t expect the police to turn up a week before the opening of their latest venue, Ground Control des Champs.
The pair has teamed up to bring one of Paris’ most exciting pop-up ventures to the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, after stints in a former mail sorting center in the 18th arrondissement, on the lower level of the Cité de la Mode in the 13th and in a railway-owned warehouse in the 12th, where Ground Control is still based.
To say the timing could be better is quite the understatement. The Parisian avenue has been the main scene of the “gilets jaunes” demonstrations, which started life as a protest against fuel taxes and have since grown to encompass a range of demands, held all over France in the last couple of weeks.
A police officer explained that the Galerie 26, the space where Ground Control des Champs is based, will be preventatively shut on Saturday, the day of the third demonstration planned on the Champs-Elysées.
As a result, the pop-up bar opening at number 26 on the avenue — first for friends and family on Thursday, then to the public on Dec. 11 — will have

Golden Globes 2019 Nominations: ‘Vice,’ ‘Versace’ & ‘A Star is Born’

Well, no surprises there. “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” “A Star is Born,” “Vice” and “The Favourite” were the top titles receiving nods from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Thursday morning as nominations for the 76th Golden Globe Awards were doled out in Beverly Hills. Many of the actors singled out were already in the mix at September’s Emmy Awards – Rachel Brosnahan, Thandie Newton, Penelope Cruz – but the rash of fall films now in awards season contention added some new blood to the roster, such as Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman for the court drama “The Favourite,” and of course, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for “A Star is Born.”
Designers know the drill well by now, as do fashion houses, who have been jockeying for pole position with nominees and attendees since the film festivals began in the fall. Indeed, it will be a nonstop sprint to the red carpet as the awards show falls on Jan. 6 this year, less than a week after the holidays and less than two months until the Academy Awards on Feb. 24.

Michael Burke on the Power of Time

MIAMI — Time is on Louis Vuitton’s side.
Ten years ago, chief executive officer Michael Burke met Design Miami/ founder and developer — and major art collector — Craig Robins, who asked if Louis Vuitton would be interested in participating in his vision for the Design District. In the years since, the area, which was originally a furniture district, has become a major meeting point for luxury fashion and public art.
“This was no man’s land 10 years ago,” said Burke on Wednesday morning from the fourth floor of Vuitton’s boutique. The floor had been transformed into a jungle oasis, with floor-to-ceiling live walls and Astroturf for carpeting. Exotic bags hung suspended in the air, joined by the house’s iconic trunks and pieces from the Objets Nomades collection, which is also shown in a booth at Design Miami/ and was celebrated the evening before at SoHo Beach House.
Burke shared two conditions that he relayed to Robins when discussing involvement in the project a decade ago: The area needed a critical mass and, as an outdoor mall, to be planned in such a way that limited cars in favor of pedestrian movement.
“Today it’s much more difficult to master plan,” Burke said. “Forty years ago,

Valentino Fetes Men’s Shop on Rodeo With Rae Sremmurd & Hip-Hop Stars

“I rock a lot of Valentino. Right now I own about 10 pairs of Valentino shoes, but I gotta definitely go out and get a lot more — probably 20 or 30 more,” said Swae Lee, one half of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.
Lee and Slim Jxmmi, the other half of the duo, were both decked out in the house’s new logo men’s wear on Tuesday night, which marked the addition of a 550-square-foot dedicated men’s area to the Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverly Hills. The store concept was developed by creative director Pierpaolo Picciolo with David Chipperfield Architects.
“Valentino is fly,” proclaimed Jxmmi. “I didn’t really know about it until after we achieved fame and we had the money to actually look at those types of things. But this is a firebrand. This coat I’ve got right now reminds me of some [Hussein] Chalayan stuff. I think they do different types of stuff, like this coat, I’d perform in this.”
Added Lee, “Hopefully we get locked in with Valentino and get a whole campaign. I like their dimensions on their pants and shirts; they are not too baggy and they lay nicely on the body when you wear them.” To make his

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Fab 5 Freddy Pays Homage to His Heroes

Sometimes, you have to go to Miami to meet a New York icon. On Tuesday night, hip-hop pioneer and visual artist Fab 5 Freddy was hanging out at the Nautilus Hotel, where he was unveiling new works in collaboration with Half Gallery and Harper’s Books.
“These are all kind of iconic heroes to me in different regards coming up,” said Fab 5 Freddy of the works, which include Bruce Lee, Jim Kelly, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa as bedazzled subjects set atop collages images. “The way I work, I think of it similar to the way hip-hop is made. I find images and I move it around digitally, kind of like I’m sampling, putting things together and remixing and then printing on canvas. And then me and my team, we apply these crystals, make it kind of come to life. It’s almost like a form of animation, when you move around the work there’s some movement going on with the light.”
As for the rest of the week, he’s keeping things relaxed. “I try to see good stuff but not get too overwhelmed. You can have art overload down here — you can OD,” he said.

Pirelli Unveils 2019 Calendar in Milan

MILAN — “We’ll see if I die.” No panic — this is just the normal thought of a star of a popular Netflix show. While she will start filming the next series of “Ozark” in May, Julia Garner is regularly checking with the show’s runner if her character Ruth Langmore will survive or not. “He says I’m not [dying], but we will see.”
Garner was in Milan on Wednesday to celebrate the launch of the Pirelli 2019 calendar, mainly shot in Miami by legendary photographer Albert Watson. Garner is one of the four female protagonists of the iconic calendar, along with Laetitia Casta, Misty Copeland and Gigi Hadid.
“I was in the middle of shooting episode nine or 10 for season two [of ‘Ozark’] when I was doing this and I was so worried because I looked so ugly in ‘Ozark‘. I was saying to myself ‘how will I look good for Pirelli?’” said Garner, referring to the sloppy and dirty look of her character. “Jason Bateman [‘Ozark’s’ protagonist] actually asked me if I was going to be in a racing car for Pirelli.”

Art Basel Miami Beach 2018: Christian Louboutin Celebrates Ebony G. Patterson at PAMM

When Christian Louboutin signed on as a sponsor of artist Ebony G. Patterson’s exhibition at PAMM, which was celebrated Tuesday night with a buoyant party upstairs on the museum’s third floor, he didn’t realize that one of the show’s standout pieces would revolve around an especially appropriate item: shoes.
“It’s affectionately called ‘The Shoe Cloud,’” Patterson explained, noting that the actual title is “…stars…” The artwork includes hundreds of glitter-covered pairs of women’s shoes suspended from a ceiling-high beam, a reference to the makeshift memorials of sneakers that frequently dangle from urban light posts and wires. “It’s marking the sky like a star. It’s said that people actually do that with the impetus that the soul is closer to heaven and it will make its way there a lot easier.”
“It’s funny, because when I looked at that piece, something came to mind which has to do with my work,” Louboutin said. “When I started designing shoes, I never thought of fashion. My first thought was dancers, and the ultimate heel is the ballerina’s toe shoe. What is the point shoe? It makes you closer to the heaven, to the sky, in a way.”

The Chanel Metiers d’Art After Party: Kelela, Karl and Some Burgers

A burger joint is the last place you’d expect to see Kelela and six backup dancers perform her ethereal, dreamy music on stage. But that’s what happened on Tuesday night when Chanel took over Central Park. For the after party following the brand’s Metiers d’Art show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the musician gave a surprise show in the park, inside a tent that had been constructed just for the event. The interior was transformed into “CC’s Diner” — Karl Lagerfeld loves a thematic set — replete with wooden and striped leather banquette booths and two Airstream trailers that held bars serving signature drinks. Milkshakes, fries and cheeseburgers — which one guest of the party tried to order rare, to no avail — were on offer. Amid all this, Kelela emerged on stage in white, wearing Chanel’s signature jacket and a beret. She sang “Bluff,” “Better” and more, all with plenty of reverb and echo. Guests cheered hard when she and her dancers vogued and hit death drop after death drop. Her final song was punctuated by two glitter cannons that propelled silver confetti into the air.
Models from the show, back in their street clothes, were still rocking the
