Other than sun, sand, sea and healthy doses of art alongside natural vitamin D, art and high fashion retail take on a new automated persona at Miami Basel this year. Interview Magazine partnered up with The Mondrian to install a special Semi-Automatic vending machine that dispenses everything from one-off creations, Interview Magazine exclusive products to unique experiences to celebrate the magazine’s 40th Anniversary. Think Dolce & Gabbana one-off “We Love Madonna” tank top (signed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana), Dr. Martens collaboration with Subversive Jewelry, Jil Sander limited edition tee, ticket to a vintage shopping trip with Interview’s Contributing Editor Fabiola Beracasa in New York City, and even Andre’s collaborative iPhone silder case and Macbook sleeve with Incase. Definitely not your average automatic purveyor of sugar-laden snacks, do drop by for a unprecedented vending experience if you plan on hitting up Miami Art Basel next month–just be prepared for long lines and possible heart palpitations from watching people walk away with the last Raf Simons and Sterling Ruby collaboration art work.
