Drive-through design is the latest trend to hit Art Basel Miami Beach thanks to Art Drive-Thru, a pop-up store created by Paris fashion label Colette and Miami concept store Alchemist.
Inspired by the retro American drive-thrus of the 1950s, the temporary store allows visitors to drive up to the window and order from a virtual menu of specially curated design items. These are then delivered to the parking bay by girls in roller skates, or a "carhop."
The menu includes items from Zaha Hadid, Karl Lagerfeld, Jeff Koons, Kenzo, Damien Hirst, Yves Klein and of course, Colette. Pop art is the flavor of the day, with Andy Warhol-inspired prints, geometric patterns and bold colors featured throughout the collection.
A selection of items from Alchemist, including Orangina packaging by graffiti artist André, will also be available at the Drive-Thru, which is open 24/7.
"Colette, to us, has always been an inspirational and institutional cultural window to the world," said Alchemist founders Roma and Erika Cohen. "We're honored and humbled to be a part of this exciting collaborative project."
Art Drive-Thru runs through December 8 at 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami.
