the style at art basel was more rich and chic than flashy and arty. there were many art collectors who really could afford the expensive paintings and sculptures that were shown at the exhibition. i've never seen so many chanel, fendi and hermès bags in one day!
here the best street styles:
at the entrance of the art show we met su mang, the chief-editor of harper's bazaar china. she's wearing a cape from hermès and a crocodile bag from tod's.
but there were also people with great style and affordable clothes like susana, an artist from zurich/lima, who is wearing a scarf, a skirt and a bag from the peruvian flea market. well combined with a pink jacket from american apparel and neon sneakers from adidas.
anna clivio (left) looks like sonia rykiel! she's only wearing clothes from her favourite designer and fashion icon sonia rykiel... (as you can see.. ) this time she made an exception and took a hermès bag instead..
the artist alexandra fly from berlin with the hilarious self-made vagina-dress is fighting for the women rights. she explained that to tina in funny way. she thinks that the globalization didn't bring any progress for women.
mahara is also a former miss switzerland. she's now working as a pretty good dj and singer. tina took a picture of her outside of the art unlimited show. she's wearing a dress from quiksilver woman and vintage boots from the vintage-store lux located in zurich.
of course there were many journalists that day. during our tour through the show we saw the columnist and author mark van huisseling. he was hunting celebrities for his new tv show which starts 24/06 at 8:00 p.m. at pro sieben. he's wearing a tailor-made suit from grieder and a very cool bag from Jas. M.B. London from the store l’éclaireur in paris. his favourite artist is ed ruscha.
alex is a salesman from zurich. he's wearing gucci shoes and green jeans (by the way: green pants seems to be very trendy!i saw at least five guys wearing them!) his favourite artists are andy warhol and roy lichtenstein.
patricia is a former miss switzerland. she works as an artist and photographer now. we took the picture in front of her favourite artwork, a deer from the japanese artist kohei nawa. she's wearing a chanel bag and a vintage dress.
nina is a designer who lives in zurich and new york. she has her own clothing-line called family affairs. the blazer, the vest and the dress are from family affairs. her tote bag is a gift from the karma international gallery. she was visiting the art show with her friend pascal, who is a photographer and blogger (fashionbitsandbobs.com). he's wearing a shirt from cos, a vintage hat and shoes from his dad (vintage bata). his glasses are from moscot.
stephane is one of the youngest we met at art basel. he's only 17-years old and an art student from geneva. he knows a lot about art - despite his young age! we were impressed. his favourite artist is bansky. he's wearing a ralph lauren-blazer, pants from april77 and earphones from wesc.
