Who, What, Where, And When At Art Basel

-------


We’re at that time of year when the party winds blow south—to Art Basel Miami Beach. Two of the week’s busiest spots are starting things off tonight: At The Webster, the Brazilian footwear company Melissa is throwing a dinner in honor of Italian designer and architect Gaetano Pesce; meanwhile, at brand-spanking-new Soho Beach House, Jay Jopling’s big-time gallery, White Cube, will be tippling until 3 a.m.

This time around, erstwhile gallerist Jeffrey Deitch will be at Miami Basel as director of L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art. As usual, though, he’s hosting a big backyard party at the Raleigh (whose famous pool is pictured, above) on Wednesday, and this year he’s booked LCD Soundsystem. Other Wednesday night options include cocktails with The Last Magazine at The Webster and a party in a car park designed by Herzog & de Meuron—home of the new boutique The Alchemist, which has partnered with the art-world Web site Art Ruby for its inaugural Basel party.

But the real circus night is shaping up to be Thursday. Naturally, both Schnabel men are involved. Papa is doing a star-studded screening of his latest film, Mistral, in collaboration with Maybach and J/P HRO, Sean Penn’s Haiti charity; son Vito, meanwhile, is hosting a late-night bash at Wall with pals Stavros Niarchos and Alex Dellal. In between, there are fashion-heavy dinners for W and Interview magazines (at Cecconi’s and the Delano’s Solarium, respectively), not to mention one at The Webster hosted by La Mer. Across the bay, Bally is celebrating its pop-up shop and collaboration with Swiss artist Philippe Decrauzat. (While we’re on the subject, two other pop-ups to keep an eye on are the eyewear brand Illesteva’s, at Soho Beach House, and the OHWOW shop at the Standard Spa.)

Legionnaire Lagerfeld, Broadcast Balazs, And More…

Karl Lagerfeld is the latest designer to be appointed as a Commander of the French Légion d’Honneur. That’s a relief: With just the constant accolades and endless new assignments to keep him going, we were worried he was going to get low self-esteem. [WWD]

And speaking of Chanel, The Moment checks in with house accessories designer (and Maison Michel milliner) Laetitia Crahay for a few salty quips about fashion, style, and the Kaiser. Among the revelations: She went to fashion school disliking fashion, couldn’t be bothered with draping, and supports a skincare regime that includes drinking, smoking, and partying. [The Moment]

André Balazs is reportedly in talks to create a fictionalized TV show about life behind the scenes at his famous hotels. Will the stars’ notorious antics be visible through the thin veil of fiction? Celebrity publicists, stand by. [Page Six]

And Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz—late of Aquascutum—are headed to Bally, says Fashion Week Daily. [FWD]

Lanvin has opened its second American outlet—and the first to sell its menswear—in Las Vegas (pictured). Well, there goes any chance of those casino winnings actually making it home. [WWD]

Groan: Project Runway, the Wii game. Because the television wasn’t barking “Make it work!” enough already. [WWD]

Is Le Baron coming to New York City? According to Eater, a deal is in the works for an NYC outpost of André’s famous Parisian club on the border of Chinatown and the Financial District. Spring ’11 fashion week revelers, starting girding yourselves now. [Eater]

Brian Atwood is leaving Bally after three years with the Swiss house; his Fall 2010 show in Milan will be his last. He’ll concentrate on his namesake label. [FWD]

And Tommy Hilfiger may see a change of hands: Vogue U.K. is reporting that its owner, Apax Partners, is considering selling. All eyes are on Phillips-Van Heusen, seen as the likeliest buyer; the company already licenses Tommy’s shirting and neckwear. Wholesale intrigue! [Vogue U.K.]
