In Miami, blue-chip design collaborations always merit a celebration. To wit: the recent cocktail party hosted by Berluti President Pietro Beccari for the unveiling of four unique pieces by furniture designer Maarten Baas at the Berluti boutique in the Design District.
Held during Basel week, the soiree’s guest list was heavy on bold-face names, including Dior Homme Creative Director Kris Van Assche, jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez, author Derek Blasberg, gallerists Max Wigram and Emmanuel Perrotin, and Dacra honcho Craig Robins.
Overwhelmed by the profusion of Art Week’s visual offerings, guests were rather enchanted by Baas’ whimsical pieces, which the designer said were inspired by Miami’s dolce far niente spirit. After much art talk and cocktails, a select group of guests moved on the nearby de la Cruz Collection museum for a private dinner hosted by museum namesakes Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz. –Photography courtesy of Berluti
