Where the runway meets the street

Influential Paris concept store colette is making its way over to Miami this December for Art Basel Miami Beach (December 2–8, 2013) for a different kind of art experience, in partnership with Miami’s innovative fashion concept shop Alchemist. The colette Art Drive-Thru at Alchemist is installed in the Carpark adjacent to Alchemist on Level 5 of 1111 Lincoln Road, the beautiful concrete structure designed by architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron.

The colette x Alchemist temporary drive-thru is designed by Rene Gonzalez Architect, who was honored with a National AIA Award for the interior design of Alchemist on Level 5 of the Carpark. Visitors to the installation will drive up, order from a virtual menu of specially curated items, and wait for a “carhop” (girls on roller skates) to bring out the order. But rather than malts, burgers and fries, shoppers will be able to choose from a lineup of exclusive items, produced especially in partnership with colette for the temporary store. Participants include some of the most compelling names in art, fashion and culture working today – Bamford Watch Department, Jose Parla, Andre, Julia Chang, Zaha Hadid, Chrome Hearts, Darcel, Kevin Lyons, Dr. Romanelli, James Franco, Friends With You, Andy Warhol, Shin Tanaka, Karl Lagerfeld, Takashi Murakami, Keith Haring, Pharrell Williams, Moncler, KAWS, Todd James and many, many more. Furthermore specially co-branded drive-thru items designed by Yorgo & Co who developed all the art direction will also be up for sale.

We could not have imagined a better way for colette to be present at Art Basel Miami. The pop-up store opens on December 2 and will remain open the full week until December 7. You can shop 24/7 at the drive-thru counter. Take a look at the full lineup of items, the exact location, and all other information around the pop-up store on a dedicated website here.
