Dion Lee & friends fête new flagship

During Art Basel, New York-based Australian designer Dion Lee took over the Institute of Contemporary Art for a bash celebrating his first US flagship store. The brick and mortar destination for the brand’s popular daring and slashed separates, chunky outerwear, micro minis, and nightlife-ready pieces will open in the Miami Design District later this month, marking an important milestone for the line which the namesake designed debuted in 2009. (Psssst: A Soho outpost is expected next year too.) The party at ICA, presented in partnership with Emcee and Cash App, gave party people plenty of reasons to stay out late on Friday, thanks to a performance roster featuring Kelela and DJs Crystallmess, Mister Vacation, and Fashion. Many guests were spotted wearing head-to-toe Dion Lee, including Shenseea, Rich the Kid, Gabbriette, Selah Marley, Taylour Paige, Memphy, siickbrain, Deon Hinton, and CT Hedden. Also in attendance were Meredith Duxbury, Yaeji, Blu DeTiger, Sophia Roe, Yvesmark Chery, Kim Shui, Melodie Monrose, Cris Urena, and Arlenis Sosa.
