Hermès in the Design District

As owner and broker of SBI Realty, one of the top boutique real estate offices in town, as well as a member of the board of trustees of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Diane Lieberman takes Art Basel Miami Beach seriously on all fronts. For this giant in the real estate industry—she sold more than $100 million in six months as the exclusive broker for The Caribbean Condos on Miami Beach—and in the philanthropic community, Art Basel is a key professional and personal time. “People want to apartment shop while visiting Miami during Basel, so I’m actually very busy,” she points out. “I even bought an apartment on the Beach so I can change and refresh between events and showings!” Lieberman has lived in Miami for more than 20 years, having relocated from her native Philadelphia. “I love this town,” she says. “I’m very proud to say I’m from Miami.”

Dressing for Success
“I love Lanvin because it’s edgy and conservative at the same time. I might wear one of its dresses to the Vanity Fair party I attend every year.” Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-864-4250

Art and Sole
“I’m always in Prada. I’ll wear a Prada trouser or dress that can take me from day to night. I love a flat or low wedge for navigating the convention center, and am in flats 90 percent of the time during Basel.” 180 NE 40th St., Miami, 305-438-2280

Solar Shade
“I love my aviators from Alex and Ani because they don’t have a logo and are light. Their company is all about being eco-friendly and having positive energy.” 150 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, 561-837-6497

Diamonds Forever
“Nicky Kaufman Simkins is a fourth-generation Miami wholesale diamond estate jeweler, and I buy a lot from her. I once bought a pair of diamond chandelier earrings right off her when I ran into her at The Forge! December is my wedding anniversary, as well as the holidays and Basel, so it’s usually the perfect time to be getting new jewelry.” Charles Kaufman Jewelry, 169 E. Flagler St., Miami, 305-788-3539

Birkin Love
“I love Hermès bags for day. The bag that I like best is the 35 Birkin. The gold and the black go with everything. If I am wearing all black, I prefer to wear the red or the orange version.” 175 NE 40th St., Miami, 305-868-0118

Day to Night
“A Chanel blazer gets me through the day, and I love a great cross-body bag from them for evenings to hold a business card and lipstick—all I need!” Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-0550
