David "LEBO" Le Batard
Fashion and art go together like Carrie Bradshaw and Manolo Blahniks. For one of the Magic City’s coolest couplings of fashion and art, one need only pop into Bloomingdale's Aventura this Saturday (6–9 PM) as it hosts LEBO’s live denim art performance with Hudson Jeans. Miami-bred artist David “LEBO” Le Batard will bring his Crayola-colored palette to Bloomingdale’s for a unique experience entitled, “Red Hot Soul and Deep, Deep Blues.” The journey into light, sound and hue will combine LEBO’s trademark performance painting with high-tech dynamic light projection. Something tells us Bradshaw would approve of this postmodern-cartoon-expressionism-meets-dungarees diversion. Bloomingdale’s, The Men’s Store, Level 1, 19555 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura
