Favourite shows ...
Dion Lee - My favourite collection of his so far. Loved the slightly more relaxed silhouettes and sportswear touches.
Simon Miller - The presentation of this emerging brand took place in a rug store in Tribeca: think girls lounging among piles of oriental rugs, a live band and stacks of books. Made in the US with Japanese textiles, the brand is one to watch.
Calvin Klein - Fluid tailoring and crystal touches. Beautiful.
Favourite soundtrack ...
Michael Jackson at Tommy Hilfiger.
Soho Grand Hotel - The place for a party or an early night in escaping the cold. Oh, and they do avocado on toast.
My R.M. Williams Millicent boots didn’t leave my feet and black Nobody jeans managed to protect me from the bitterly cold wind - just. Outdoor Voices was a NY discovery; a line of activewear perfect for any opportunity to work out.
Best dinner spots ...
Dimes for pretending it wasn’t -15 degrees outside and eating healthy Californian-inspired fare.
Le Turtle for cheese plates and wine.
Balthazar, still the best for steak frites.
Favourite wellness destinations ...
Karen Lord Pilates Movement - For helping me stick to my Pilates routine. A beautiful studio in Tribeca.
Naturopathica Chelsea - For a healthy tonic at the Vitality Bar and a Eucalyptus massage to remind me of home and relieve travel tension.
