A salad of snapshots of my summer in the city of New York so far:
the East Village approaching sunset
noisy signs in suprisingly large Chinatown
savory cumin lamb and hand-pulled noodles in soup from Xi’an Famous Foods
chairs stacked, waiting for SoHo Park to open
veggie burger and fries at SoHo Park
my NY summer wardrobe favorites: vintage silk t-shirt and DIY barb-wire necklace made out of trimmings from M&J
for an unexpected shock of red and a precious reminder of the nineties: the indestructible Casio G-Shock
Photograph taken by me, proudly. (Details here.) The truck with the tube was a totally intentional contrapuntal touch.
I love that though her style isn’t typically menswear-inspired, fellows can be inspired by certain elements in her outfit.
It’s all in the details: a gold binder clip attached to a bag strap (note to self: find one, use as fastener for those drapey cardigans and buttonless jackets), cardigan with cut-out armpits by Vivienne Westwood.
