RECOMMENDED BRUNCH SPOT
“Soho House has a really great Sunday brunch. I also recently visited Abcv (celebrated French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the Flatiron district), which was incredible.”
FAVOURITE NIGHTLIFE ESTABLISHMENT
“I like Paul’s Baby Grand (a quirky joint by nightlife impresario Paul Sevigny – yes, brother of actress Chloe – at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, known for its fashionable decor and crowd), but I’m happy anywhere with good friends, music, lighting and drinks.”
HER CHILL-OUT HAUNTS
“I love going to Battery Park with my family, or going to any museum to walk around and get inspired. (If we want to get out) of the city, we like driving to Blue Hill at Stone Barns (chef Dan Barber’s restaurant set in a 1930s barn – it’s big on simple, fresh and ethical farm-totable practices).”
MUSIC SHE’S INTO NOW
“It’s not much of a discovery because everyone knows Solange (Knowles), but I really love her latest album A Seat at the Table. Also, The xx just came out with their album I See You, and they’re amazing.”
STANDOUT FROM HER RECENT ATELIER SWAROVSKI TIE-UP
“I love everything from the collection – the colours, shapes and versatility. (Her second partnership with the jeweller’s collaborative arm, it features tanzanite and aquamarine crystals with bold cuts on equally graphic pieces.) You can wear the necklaces as bracelets and vice versa. And every piece can be worn during the day or night.”
The New York branch of the global Soho House brand is her go-to joint for Sunday brunch.
Her F/W ’17 collection of statement daywear also features crystals by Swarovski.
She regularly visits Battery Park in the southern tip of Manhattan Island for family time.
Her S/S ’17 Atelier Swarovski tie-up is meant for all occasions.
