The Lower East Side staple – Hester Street Fair – will be setting up shop at the Deauville Beach Resort this year during Art Basel, creating the hotel’s first and only gift shop.
Hester Street Fair opens Gift Shop in Miami Beach featuring two experiential storefronts that offer a fake Katz’s Deli from Laila Gohar, with limited edition pastrami sandwiches, scent squares from master nose Christophe Laudamiel, one which smells like pure opium and the other the Chelsea hotel, a new fragrance by Chelsea Perfume with the creative brief “sex, sweat, weed and ketchup,” Smoothie Beauty offers literal smoothies for your face, custom sneakers by Triesti, Print-All-Over Me creates a colorful immersive coral installation. Objectify and Sparkle Diva collaborated on various products including postcards, tote bags and candles made specifically for this occasion. Gift Shop opens Thursday, December 1st at 11am. The two retail locations are at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach at 6689 and 6695 Collins Avenue.
Hester Street Fair will take on the traditional and sometimes absurd diversity of a beachside gift shop, paying homage to the hotel’s Miami Art Deco history yet updated for the creative crowd. One retail space will offer a traditional “gift shop” experience with merchandise that includes clothes, swimwear, gifts, souvenirs, and more. The other will evoke an art-lounge with small press books, zines, lounge chairs, furniture, and design objects.
Open daily, Gift Shop will operate from 11am to 7pm, December 1 – 4.
