If you believe Art Basel Miami is only focused on classic or modern art, then you might be very wrong — the most anticipated Art week of the year has turned into a massive festivity for not only emerging artists but also an opportunity for many Fashion Houses to create unforgettable experiences and target a whole new audience. Let’s not forget Faith Connexion’s yearly participation – except this year the brand stepped it up by joining forces with TheArsenal. The partnership of both brands surprised everyone at the Perez Art Museum on December 2nd with an artistic interaction showcasing a Flying Motorcycle powered by DDA and an unforgettable appearance by the Gypsy Kings, who played during the entire evening.
The evening showcased an organic and functional ecosystem of joint forces: Art, Tech and Fashion.
Faith Connexion and Faith Tribe’s Maria Buccellati alongside TheArsenale’s founder Patrice Meignan and Marcela Meignan, surfed together on the upcoming trend in mobility, by showcasing the first ever Electric Flying Motorcycle named INKSY along with a special neon jumpsuit imagined and designed by Faith Connexion for piloting Inksy, now available on the market.
The neon jumpsuit was impossible to seem unnoticed, as it was the literal highlight object to play with. The glow in the dark, futuristic looking item was styled with Ricagno shoes and worn by Brazilian model Sofia Resing, the Fashion curator and stylist Gabriela Medina, Latin influencer Nane Miller, stylist Victoria Cooper and Model Viktoria Gab. These models, or better named glam “pilots” were styled by Raul Guerra and Natalie from Peechy Group. Basilio Silva, Gato Suaya, and BFA captured the iconic moment through their lenses.
Technology and the future of Fashion are headed to the skies, Miami Art Basel was just the perfect stage.
Flying is transportation’s future. Insky, who was the star of the night, made the event possible by the help of DDA, TheArsenale and Faith Connexion.
Museum guests included activist Matheus Mazzafera, fashionista Angeles Mula, It-Girl Chloe Lazard, Divya Mathur from Intermix, Mikolaj Sekutowicz from Therme Art, Alvaro Nuñez, students from Istituto Marangoni who also played a part by showcasing some of their designs, the famous Mago Dovjenko who presented some of this art work in collaboration with iconic Faith Connexion jackets, among many other 400 guest who came to watch… and dance live to the Gypsy Kings as tech and fashion made their next steps.
