Pharrell & Diddy Attend Silencio Art Basel Popup, Hosted by GREY GOOSE Vodka

SILENCIO & MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT Event Curated by Pharrell Williams & Takashi Murakami

Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 is in full effect! A lot of celebs, music artists, artists and film makers are in Miami for the festivities. Cassie was photo’d at Art Basel 2013 and Angela Simmons hit up DuJour magazine’s event to honor artist Marc Quinn at Delano Beach Club.

YDBR latest sighting was Pharrell Williams and Diddy. Last night Wednesday (December 4), Silencio once again brought the legendary Paris nightclub to the heart of the Design District with a pop-up lounge.  This highly anticipated event was hosted by Pharell Williams and contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and featured music by DJ Mike and specialty GREY GOOSE cocktails.

David Lynch, filmmaker and artist, worked with designer Raphael Navot, architectural agency Enia and light designer Thierry Dreyfus, to conceive and design “Silencio” inspired by the club from Lynch’s 2001 film Mulholland Drive.

It was the hottest party of the night – Pharrell arrived with Diddy early in the evening and made their rounds, mingling with pals and posing for photos.  Later, Pharrell took to the stage for an energetic performance that spurred a massive conga line around the room.
