How to flex on everyone at ART BASEL.

Art Basel is upon us, and all the Picasso Babies are descending on South Beach for the world’s biggest culture event. Along with the art, the obvious cornerstone and reason for Basel being, the fashion is a very, very close second. The event is populated by those who believe themselves to be a living canvas, with a rather wide range and scope. From Euro luxury to the more outlandish and rebellious, there is no “Basel Look” per se, but an ideal, or ideology. It is with these principals, themes, and motifs in mind that we curated an ideal outfit composite that reflects the spirit and energy of Basel – featuring some of the best designers and brands on The Set. Here it is. Top down. The Hat: DETACHE LABS CIVET 360  The wide brim Fedora is by far the most fitting for the city, season, and energy. The…

Wander ART BASEL With Us.

Imagine loading a cannon with pastel paints and firing it all over South Beach.And those hit by the Pollock style bomb range from ascot wearing European wealth from Monaco to graffiti artists in street wear from Bushwick who clawed together change to get here. And then dress it up.  That’s Art Basel. The biggest art show in the world will be repurposing the metro of Miami as a living canvas in ways, drawing over 80,000 in just a few days to countless galleries, exhibits, installations and events that range from the Victorian to the surreal. It’s both Vatican and Valerian. It’s hip and temporary and established and stuffy. There’s a sea of indie as fuck drug addled street culture and also a brunch hosted by JP Morgan. Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as…

Real Recognize REAL. Meet LOGAN REAL.

Real is a funny term. It has a shit load of variance, denotation, and meaning – culturally and colloquially. Depending on what circle you travel in, it connotes being physically tangible, the undisputed apex in what ever your “deal” happens to be, or simply not a fucking poser. Kanye seems to think it means, “last night was too lit.” (See: “N****s In Paris” –   prior to his need for sunglasses and Advil and other morning after stuff.) In all of the aforementioned “realisms”, there is continuity and relevance in the case of one, Logan Real. He loves the movie “McGruber” and he and I vibed about everything from hiphop, to Keith Haring, to our mutual love for anything Danny McBride, Kandinsky and quoted “Eastbound & Down”. We made plans to hit Wynwood in Miami. Cuban-American designer and artist Logan Real, born and raised in Miami, Florida, was always artistic. He was…

SMOKEPURPP Is Wanderset AF.

Meet one of the hottest emerging stars in the country. Surrounded by semi-automatics, pills, cohorts with neon colored dreads, lean in his fanta, Audis, and millions of plays and hits on his records that radio would never in a million years spin. He doesn’t give a fuck. This is SmokePurpp. The 19-year-old Miami rapper started gaining serious traction in the summer of 2016, when he dropped two videos, “WOKHARDT” and “Ski Mask” within a month of each other. Booming production and a garbled delivery, half mumble rap and half aggro bark, lo-fi indie mixing contrasted by a love of upmarket urban luxe fashion gave way to increased attention. The recent emergence of that South Florida Soundcloud trap scene hasn’t hurt either. SpaceGhostPurpp, Denzel Curry, Kodak Black, Pouya and XXXTENTACION are all links in the same chain that was first forged by Trick Daddy, elongated by Rick Ross, and polished to…

The Top 5 Killer Del Toro Drops For Fall

Del Toro took the concept, and embodiment of that luxe hotel Southbeach/Europe class leisure, and mixed it with some fresh ass SOHO art galleria and that Fairfax LA fuck-corporate-shit. It all culminates in a sartorial, high brow cultural middle finger steeze. And it’s rad as hell and just what the good doctor ordered. BURGUNDY MOROCCO HIGHTOP CHUKKA Burgundy Bottalato Leather high tops are inspired by the super hip Mediterranean nation. The motif of Camels and abstract design icons, a fresh white Margum sole, and signature Toro heel tab are leather lined, hand made right across the Med in Italy, and would be ideal for a navy blue suit. Cous Cous on these haters. BLACK VELVET CANDY SKULL SLIPPERS Day of the dead kill it in these hotel slippers that could only exist in a resort El Chapo owns and brunch is snorted, and all the drinks have a…

Del Toro Is The Hippest Luxe Footwear Designer On Earth. Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You.

Del Toro is the luxury lifestyle brand based out of Miami, Florida that we at Wanderset feel you need to discover. It’s not that they’re making everything from luxe slippers with skulls and crossbones, to red quilted high tops – it’s that it all works. It’s not a reach, or far fetched, and it doesn’t come across as a “do too much to be niche” rookie brand. Del Toro is not still feeling itself out, it knows who it is, and it’s unapologetically sarcastic, and sartorial. The brand’s character is equally European luxury, South Beach party posh, New England Ivy League, and NYLONKONG street rebellious. At the same damn time.  Originally a men’s brand, Del Toro now produces shoes and accessories for both men and women. Del Toro was founded in 2005 and originally sought to fill a void in the marketplace for affordable customized velvet slippers. Through this success,…
