THE REBELS WINNERS MAKE A SPLASH

There’s nothing like a bit of pathetic fallacy – and the Miami weather didn’t disappoint during the build-up to THE REBELS: with the heat soaring and lightning flashing in the distance, the tension was palpable at THE REBELS & Closing Party – brought to you by Menin Hospitality, entertainment by Buddha Bar – as we waited to hear who from the shortlist our panel of creative class judges had chosen to take home a REBEL.

Miami’s vice and ours, Josh Wagner, took to the stage with Beyond Luxury Media Founder and CEO, Serge Dive, and LE Event Director, Cj Holden, to present the well-deserved winners with their all-new gold, glitter-bedazzled, customisable hand trophies – check out the line-up below, or head over to the REBELS page to read more about their entries:

  • GREATEST INNOVATION / DISRUPTION: ONE NIGHT
  • MOST CREATIVE COLLABORATION: THE BETSY, SOUTH BEACH
  • BEST INTERACTION WITH NEIGHBOURHOOD: THE CHATWAL, NYC
  • MOST ORIGINAL CAMPAIGN: MOXY HOTELS
  • GREATEST GUEST EXPERIENCE: SPAIN UNSPOILT
  • SEXIEST DESIGN: ACRE

Just as the final winner left the stage, the heavens opened and, as if relieved by the much-needed release, several members of the collective bombed the pool fully clothed (again)… Do we spy the beginnings of a REBELS ritual?? We certainly hope so.

Until next year, collective.
