Our Fashion Director's Guide to New York

Our Fashion Director's Guide to New York

by Rakhee Bhatt

As the acclaimed author and journalist Tom Wolfe once said, “One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” Regardless of where you come from—another state in the U.S., a country halfway around the world, or one of NYC’s five boroughs—the city perennially seems to welcome all into its concrete fold. With New York Fashion Week just around the corner, we turned to 11 Honoré’s own Fashion Director and VP of Merchandising Jessica Raiter (a former New Yorker and frequent visitor) to get her ultimate local guide to making the most of the city during this fashionable time of the year.

WHAT TO EAT

Breakfast: Café Cluny in the West Village is a classic, neighborhood spot.

Brunch: Morandi in the West Village with its loud, Euro vibes.

Lunch: Sant Ambroeus in SoHo. It’s a beautiful space and great for people watching.

Dinner: Raoul’s in SoHo. Steak frites + martini = perfect New York night.

WHAT TO DRINK

Coffee: La Colombe.

Matcha: Cha Cha Matcha.

Libations: Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle is a New York institution. Fedora in the West Village is a modern speakeasy with creative cocktails. Alley Cat Amateur Theatre in the Financial District is an underground bar offering live music and DJs.

WHERE TO STAY

The Greenwich Hotel and The Bowery Hotel. Both hotels offer cozy rooms, comfortable common areas, great people watching, and delicious restaurants.

WHERE TO ENJOY THE OUTDOORS

Sheep Meadow in Central Park. Bring a blanket, a book, and a baguette.

Christopher Park near the West Side Highway. Catch the breeze off the Hudson on a hot day and people watch.

Washington Square Park. Performers, an eclectic crowd, a fountain, and the historical marble arch make it a quintessential New York experience.

WHERE TO SHOP

Shoes: Saks Fifth Avenue or Barneys.

Clothes: Maison Mayle on Great Jones for feminine frocks.

Home Goods: Hawkins New York on Hudson Street.

Kids Clothes: YoYa on Hudson Street.

Beauty Products: Knockout Beauty on Lexington for conscious beauty products.

WHERE TO UNWIND

Mani/Pedis: Rescue Spa.

Facials: The Goddess of Skin for the most life-changing facials.
