Alchemist&Colette for
Art Basel




During December’s Art Basel Miami, local retailer Alchemist is

partnering with Parisian concept store Colette for a one-week-only

“Art Drive-Thru,” offering exclusive pieces from some of the creative

industry’s biggest names.


Between the Art Deco architecture and South Beach’s striking coastline,

contemporary art fair Miami Beach Art Basel lights up Miami Beach each

December. This year, the event is preparing to celebrate its 12th anniversary

this year and over on the other side of the Atlantic in Paris, Colette is

partnering up with Miami‘s Alchemist to mark the milestone. The Miami

beach concept store is known for its highly specialized product selection

and its innovative CarPark designed by Herzog & de Meuron has become

one of Miami‘s architectural must-sees. From December 2 to 8, the two

stores will be hosting a temporary drive-thru created by René Gonzales

Architect, the man behind Alchemist‘s glass cube boutique (where work

by New York artist Kehinde Wiley will be on display during the Art Basel).

The experience will see shopping delivered to customer’s cars in the style of an

American drive-in, however instead of burgers and milkshakes, customers can

expect a selection of pieces selected by colette, Alchemist and some of the

biggest names in art and culture including Zaha Hadid, Kehinde Wiley,

Daniel ArshamJulia Chang and Chrome Hearts. On the fashion side of

things Julien David, Maison Kitsuné and Olympia Le-Tan have designed

a selection of items exclusively for the event. We’ve even heard whispers that

Happy Meal boxes containing Keith Haring coloring books that once

belonged to Richard Prince will be among the pieces.


Colette Art Drive-Thru At Alchemist will be open from

December 2-8, 2013, at 1111 Lincoln Road.
