As hundreds of thousands of art-philes prepare to flock to Art Basel next week, here's a few art selections available on eBay right now. Depending on your pocketbook capacities, there's a huge range of options to floss your home with sophisticated eye-candy. Here's a taste-taste of what's to follow in sunny Miami this December.
Zip! It’s the toothy sound that signals “start” for any winter trek. Zip up your parka. Zip your tent closed. Zip across the chilly hills on a snowmobile. Wherever, or however, you cold-weather venture, make sure to bring protection against the elements. Cool is cool, but cold is no kind of fun. Avoid frostbite. Stay hydrated. Explore this well-insulated collection, and get ready to hit the open snow.
A day on the mountain. On trail, or off-piste. The clean bite of alpine air. Excitement beats through your veins on the chairlift, and then: whoosh. The thrill of flying through fresh powder, snow dropping away to the left and right. It’s no wonder that humans have been skiing since the Stone Age. Too bad they didn’t have lodges in which to wind down or warm up. Ancient man knew nothing of hot chocolate. But you do. And you can curl up on a cozy sofa to watch the sun slip into night over the mountains. So today, spruce up your après-ski style with this long-awaited lodge gear.
No clear path? No visibility? No problem. When you’ve got the right rugged ride, driving through wicked winter weather is almost like cruising on a sunny afternoon. So bring on the sleet, the harsh winds, the snowplows burying you in the driveway. Neither snow nor rain nor gloom of night can stop a solid, weatherproof vehicle from getting you where you need to be. With this sturdy collection of rough-climate conveyances, you’ll be trucking along in no time.
Cabins, sweaters, movies, firewood, mugs, taxidermy. I moved to Los Angeles over a year ago, and since then, I’ve caught myself (only a few times, I swear) setting the air conditioning to 70°F so that I could wear a sweater. This collection is my way of remembering that somewhere out there, there is a real fall season. To remember that most people get to eat soup and wear sweaters without getting the sweats, and that I miss my childhood cabin in the woods.
Go back to square one. In fashion, it’s important to start from the beginning. Consider the Hermès scarf, the perfect accessory. Always appropriate. Forever in style. Timeless. Each square of silk is a uniquely executed work of art. Cutting-edge but classic. And among the classics, a king. Take your place among other fashion royalty (Jackie O, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn) with 70 square inches carefully tied round the neck, to a bag, or worn as a headpiece. Dare to be square with this lush collection.
Artists aren’t just aesthetes. They’re the ultimate rebels. Placing bathroom fixtures on pedestals. Sawing entire houses in half. Living for days in a plastic box in a museum. And their exploits expand our world. We may boldly assume we know what “art” is. Then some intrepid, creative mind comes along and turns that definition inside out. Today we celebrate these boundary-breakers with a collection of works by daring new artists.
