Bradely Theodore x Diana Vreeland

I love the fashion-themed street art pieces here by an artist named Bradley Theodore.
My favourite must be the one of Diana Vreeland on Prince Street

Two hands NYC

Loving this new Aussie place I recently discovered in Nolita. 
Two Hands is a light-filled and spacious, with white exposed brick walls. It seems like a place were the locals  grab their daily ice coffee with almond milk and an avocado toast. The staff is super friendly and it looks like they're having a great time instead of doing a chore.
I love their quirky design: jars as juice glasses, playing cards as table numbers, simple menu hand-written on shiny subway tiles and cute logos on the cups.

The first time I had just a custom made juice but this was enough to make me wanting to go back. 

Two Hands, 164 Mott St.

acai bowls topped with granola, coconut, berries, cocoa nibs and chia seeds. Their espresso was excellent too.


Alexander Wang x Haydenshapes

 alexander wang has teamed up with australian surf brand haydenshapes to outfit his new york soho flagship store with a limited series of five hand-crafted surfboards. the graphic patterns – photographs of unique marble slabs developed by haydenshapes founder hayden cox and wang himself – were digitally printed onto silk, then onto award winning hypto krypto boards to create one of a kind visual art pieces for the ‘cage’.

This huge cat spotted in China town describes my feelings on this sleepy Sunday perfectly



Bowling Green Market, August 12



for alll the fat witches

I might have just discovered how to get the best out of Chelsea Market. You know there's so many food options that it's easy to get confused and leave with empty stomach instead. After debating over several different lunch places, we took the easiest way out and got an ice cream from Ronnybrook dairy (Honey and Basil) to accompany Baby Witches (aka brownies) from Fat Witch Bakery. The best combo ever!

Double chocolate was the best for sure!


On The High Line

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.

BlackBook mag

Had a little sneak-peak of this fall's trends on a shoot for BlackBook magazine last week. Note: shearling, crazy colourful fur and pony hair. 

we had the nicest location for shooting -  idyllic streets around NYU buildings and Washington Sq Park




Friend of a Farmer

It's time to start with New York food posts!
 Surprisingly, having a good and tasty lunch here doesn't happen too often. In most cases I opt for deli salads, yogurt parfaits and nut&seed energy bars, therefore the occasional great food experiences are hard to forget.

I have to thank my booker Kristen for showing me this adorable restaurant Friend Of A Farmer on 77 Irving Place. It's just like the name implies - looking like a friendly cosy farm house, serving homely comfort food - but with a fancy touch when it comes to serving and pricing.

Gramercy Park salad with grilled salmon / Pepper Crusted Tuna with grilled vegetables

As it happened to be the night just right before my birthday, couldn't avoid a little surprise cake.

Brooklyn Flea Market

It's no secret I love any kind of flea markets: browsing through old books, postcards, jewelry, clothes and all the other odd items, observing interesting vendors and even more extraordinary shoppers, buying ice cream and cold drinks from food trucks, enjoying the atmosphere and sunshine. It's all fun even if I don't find anything to buy, although this time I left with a nice grey wool sweater and supercool playing cards from Misc Goods Co. 
Can't wait to go back next weekend!
Brooklyn Flea Market: Fort Greene Flea every Saturday 10am - 5pm
