Diane Von Furstenberg on Her Evian Bottle and Art Fair Activities

Diane Von Furstenberg and evian celebrated their collaborative limited edition water bottle with a luncheon of lamb chops, lobster, and grilled vegetables at the Tent at Soho Beach House in Miami. It was all about sibling pairs; Peter Brant Jr., Harry Brant, and Paris and Nicky Hilton were among the bold names who attended the afternoon event. ARTINFO caught up with the iconic designer behind the wrap dress to ask her about the evian bottle and if she purchased any art this week at Art Basel Miami Beach.

How did you come up with the concept for the evian bottle?

They came to me and since I’ve been drinking evian all my life, it was fun to do.

Have you checked out any of the art fairs?

Yes I have.

Did you buy anything?

I did.

What did you buy?

I don’t say, but yes, it was very nice.

You recently showed your Andy Warhol “Flowers” at Eykyn Maclean.

Just one.

What are your favorite pieces in your art collection?

I don’t know. I buy art either because they are friends or because I respond to them. Art is a part of my life. I don’t even realize it. There’s portrait of me on sale at the… a Julian Opie.

And what are your plans for the rest of the week?

I’m leaving tomorrow morning.
