Finding a 24/7 drive-through that's food-coma-inducing is easy in Miami, but finding one that delivers zero calorie goods? Impossible, unless, of course, it's Basel season. Lincoln Road's premiere shopping boutique Alchemist has partnered with Parisian concept store Colette to transform its parking garage location into an "Art Drive-Thru."
Starting today, you'll be able to drive up to the fifth floor of the 1111 building, order specially curated goods from the comfort of your car and wait for your order to be delivered by roller skating "carhop" girls. The menu is varied, with items like limited edition Keith Haring glow-in-the-dark phone cases, James Franco fanzines (only 100 available!) and a Jeremy Scott x Longchamp bag reminiscent of a televised technical difficulties screen. If you really want a value pick, order the Happy Kit, which comes with a Colette X Alchemist branded mug, lighter, mints, postcard and pin.
The boutique opens today and runs through December 8. While we admit you'll leave hungry, you definitely won't leave unsatisfied.
