    5 days ago - By WWD

    The launch for the second annual CR Fashion Book calendar hit a minor snag on Thursday, mere hours before the glam beachside party was set to begin: the calendars in question were lost on the highway somewhere en route to Miami.
    “Unfortunately our calendars were on their way to Miami today on the truck, and the guy had a little bit of an issue on the way and the calendars couldn't make it to the party,” said Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, inside the tent at the Faena where dinner was about to begin. “So we had to have someone from our office take a flight at 5:00, who is just arriving now in...

    When the Surf Lodge asked Brandon Boyd if he was interested in coming to Miami during Art Basel to decorate their pop-up at The Confidante with his artwork, the Los Angeles-based painter-singer wasn't immediately familiar with the Montauk hot spot.
    “I mentioned it to friends and they were like, oh, they're cool. Do it,” said Boyd.
    And so he did. In addition to bringing some of his existing works to town, Boyd created a few new pieces for the exhibition.
    “I go into painting and songwriting the same way, where I have almost no intention other than just jump into the deep end, and don't tread...
