Another much publicised area, but this time a complete flop as far as I am concerned, as the so called design district is just an outlet of the big brands with very little individuality, and it sounds like an excuse to open up one luxury shop behind the other. Even the Moore building with it’s Zaha Hadid installation is closed to the public and opened up only for events 🙁

But stubborn me found a few bits and piece left over from Art Basel and a nice restaurant to make the trip worthwhile..

First surprise was to find our good friend Corbu, apparently flown in from Marseille!! (See
