Entertainment 11 Dec 2017

Robbie Antonio
Robbie Antonio is a man who always focuses on the Crème de la Crème. As a collector, amassing art by the world’s most elite names (Warhol, Basquiat, Koons, de Kooning – convinced now?) – as a real estate tycoon, planing architectonic landmarks with top notch brands, such as Versace, Forbes, or Missoni – and all that done in a sleek style. His recent gig are prefabricated homes, designed by architects and artists such as Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hadid, or Lenny Kravitz, that can be shipped almost anywhere in the world. Did you place your order already? We are waiting for your housewarming invite…

Jonathan Anderson
You’re probably familiar with Jonathan Anderson from his work at Loewe and his eponymous label J.W. Anderson, but did you know he collects and curates art and design too? That’s right, the man responsible for this season’s It bag also has an eye for British ceramics and a flair for crafting exhibitions that place fashion and art on equal footing. That’s real talent.

Simon de Pury
Simon de Pury has been called “the Mick Jagger of Art Auctions,” which isn’t far from the truth. When he’s not manning the gavel, he’s a fixture among the art world jet-set, visiting far-flung exhibitions, and palling around with everyone, from dealers to artists to bona-fide celebrities. Plus, the man looks damn good in a suit.
Alexander Gilkes
Alexander Gilkes
Not only is the Paddle8 co-founder tight friends with the likes of Kate and Pippa Middleton (why, yes, he did attend the Royal wedding), but he’s also a classically good dresser (think pocket squares and perfectly- tailored suits), as well as one of the most charming auctioneers you’ll ever have the pleasure of witnessing. Basically, he’s the guy lists like this were invented for.

Deddy Kusuma
Jakarta-based art collector Deddy Kusuma has been buying art – and is looking like a rock star cool while doing it – since the 1980s. He helped pave the way for the now-flourishing Indonesian art scene. Kusuma favors bold, expressive looks with a vintage touch. Think red pants worn with leather loafers and a pink shirt, or bold, patterned button-downs under a wide-lapel jacket.

Swizz Beatz
The collector and producer (and husband to Alicia Keys) credits himself with making art cool in the hip-hop community, and given that Jay Z reportedly owns two works made by Swizz himself, we believe it. He’s also all about giving back: This April, he curated a “No Commission” art fair in Shanghai (the next edition is scheduled this summer in Berlin), where artists kept 100% of the profits, and just earlier this year, he and Keys were honored for their generosity by the Brooklyn Museum.


Dylan Brant
When Stephanie Seymour is your mother, how could you be anything other than handsome and well- dressed? But the intentionally lesser-known Brant brother is more than just a pretty face. He’s an up-and-coming curator with a penchant for producing shows around themes like youth culture and American cowboys. And he has already worked with Venus Over Manhattan and UTA Fine Arts, so get ready to see a lot more of his name.

Craig Robins
Craig Robins is a Miami-based tycoon, Design Miami co-founder, and an art collector with a massive personal collection that includes the likes of John Baldessari, Richard Tuttle, and Paul McCarthy. He’s also a smart dresser, with a pair of ever-present plastic specs and personal friendships with the likes of Pharrell and Kate Hudson.

Sebastian Errazuriz
Not only does artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz possess model-like good looks and world-class charm, but his creations are mind-bendingly beautiful, where functional objects, like a bookshelf, takes the form of winding tree limbs or a lamp with the body of a taxidermied goose. A great sense of style and a brilliant mind – what more could we want?

Awol Erizku
The Ethiopian-born, Bronx-bred artist dabbles in everything, from painting to visual installation, and often works with found materials. His work is colorful, gripping, and often aims to reflect the contemporary African-American experience. His personal style is decidedly laid back – graphic tees, leather jackets, and caps. Oh, and did we mention he shot Beyonce’s most recent maternity photos? Yeah, that happened.
