Here's What the Fashion World Was Up to During Art Basel in Miami

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Fashion people love Basel, if you haven't already noticed by all the uh-mazing street style we spotted around town throughout the week. Designers, bloggers, style influencers– it feels like the entire industry flew down for the week to indulge in a little art (and a little fun) in Miami. Ever curious we are here at Racked, we did a little cyber snooping to see what our favorite fashion peeps did during their stylish sabbaticals in Miami for Art Basel.

The Webster was the place for style spotting during Basel, as per usual. Owner Laure Heriard Dubreuil welcomed Italo Zuccheli, creative director for Calvin Klein Collection Men's, to launch his pre-spring 2016 capsule collection. Miguel made a cameo appearance.

Thanks for partying with us all night long @lionelrichie ! #LionelRichie #1220Collins #WebsterArtBasel

As did Solange, along with eyewear designer Selima Salaun and contributing fashion editor at W Magazine, senior fashion editor at Vogue Japan and creative director of Queen of the Night, Giovanna Battaglia.

Some of your favorite fashion bloggers were in town thanks to Revolve. On Thursday, they headed to Soho Beach House for a brunch with local Miami label Alexis.
