Party Report: Art Basel Miami Beach X Olivia Kim Gift & Go Pop-In@Nordstrom Dinner
Sex, drones, and rock & roll: That’s one definition of Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), the international art festival which lights up South Beach and farther-flung Miami neighborhoods like Wynwood annually, with art, artists, art dealers, and art collectors all reveling in early December. It’s a true world party; everyone is speaking a different language. This year during ABMB, Nordstrom director of creative projects Olivia Kim hosted a VIP moonlit dinner at The Standard Spa with her dear friend Rafael de Cárdenas to celebrate Nordstrom’s current Gift & Go Pop-In@Nordstrom–Rafael being the architect and designer who helped create the physical Pop-In spaces with Olivia in select Nordstrom stores. The vibe of the evening was chill.
“Art Basel can be hectic,” says Olivia. “There’s so much going on every night. So, the intention was to host a casual dinner on the waterfront that was really about celebrating Pop-In@Nordstrom and the awesome gifts we were selling in the shops, and sharing that with our friends who were in town in a fun and cute way.”
Snapshots from the dinner are included after the jump (note the friendly video drone which hovered overhead, filmed the evening’s festivities, and can be purchased as part of the Gift & Go collection).
