Last Thursday afternoon, Paddle8 threw an intimate luncheon at Soho Beach House in Miami to celebrate the incomparable Jean Pigozzi.

The art collector, photographer, businessman, philanthropist, and international jet-setter (or in short, a multi-talented multi-millionaire), has been a regular fixture at Art Basel for over a decade, and this year’s visit sparked a memorable one for sure. The gathering, hosted by Paddle8 founders Alexander Gilkes, Aditya Julka, and Osman Khan, marked the occasion of the online auction house’s exclusive sale of art and objects from Pigozzi’s personal collection—which included 21 items and ranged from a pair of Marvel Comics x BAPE Captain America Bapesta 2005 sneakers (with a starting bid of $200) to works by David Bowie including Saucer I and II, 1996, (with a starting bid of $3,800).

Guests included Yasmine Penniman, Bob Colacello, Derek Blasberg, Brett Ratner, Giovanna Battaglia, Glenn O’Brien, André Saraiva, Cary Leitzes, Maria Bell, Jill Kargman, Allison Sarofim, Maria Baibakova, and more.
