New York, New York...

Natalie's Apartment - 

Yummy, the sweetest, cuddliest little rescue poodle, casualty of cruel in-breeding, his legs don't work very well.

It looks cold outside.


I love how The New Yorker still has illustrations on the cover

Natalie about to brave sub-zero temperatures in Paul Poiret-ish style, wearing a vintage coat of her mother's

Natalie shows me a Marks and Spencer velvet jacket she customised with splashes of bleach and silver snakeskin patches - looks fabulous.

Natalie digs out a vintage Pazuki wrap I'd forgotten ever making, back in the days when I made things without considering who would buy them, or how much it would cost to produce.

Out and about - 

Marbles in Chelsea Market

Stack of old books in Anthropologie

Brownstone in Chelsea

ABC store on Broadway

Thawing out in ABC's restaurant.

Hudson River frozen over

DJ at the D&A show

I liked these paper flowers on someone's stand at Tranoi; the whole show was very black and monochrome.

Walking across Central Park

Taxi to the airport

    Great way to travel with you in retrospect without all the risk factor!!
    Makes me want to get on a plane again…though..New York has still got the buzz and great to see ABC store as I have sold there for years without seeing it. Very inspiring trip for you by all accounts. Brings back lots of memories!
