If I could fly anywhere in the world for just 24-hours, I would wake up in…

New York City, USA 

 

And stay at…

The Standard Hotel in NY’s Meat Packing district 

 

Breakfast would be…

A croissant and a homemade hot chocolate in a bakery somewhere in Brooklyn.

 

I would wear…

Vintage Persol glasses; a denim shirt with a brown leather bomber jacket from Burberry; slim-fit trousers from Dsquared; brown boots and a deep red vintage Travel Birkin from Hermes, Paris. 

 

My essentials would be…

My iPod and headphones. I always need music to get inspired!

 

I would listen to…

Whatever songs pop up on my iPod. I love music too much to pick just one song!

 

I would visit…

The streets of NYC and get lost wandering around…

 

Have lunch at…

Bergdorf Goodman — temple of the New York’s trendsetters and glitterati. 

 

Buy…

A painting from Jean Michel Basquiat and a De Sede reclaimed Terrazza leather sofa.

 

I would hang out with…

Pablo Picasso & Charles Eames If I could! 

 

Relax at

The little-known restaurant-cum-lounge, Beauty & Essex, hidden behind a pawn shop which serves American food and upscale cocktails.

 

146 Essex St, New York, NY 10002

 

Drink…

A glass of Champagne Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque.

 

Chat with…

I will tell you after I meet them at the bar!

 

Have dinner at…
