+ A Heart In New York

Most of you won’t recall the words to A Heart In New York. But since the day I heard it off a tape deck seated in the back seat of a black 4runner returning from a ski trip in the middle of the night…those words have never left my memory. Twenty years later after that...

+ Haunting Brooklyn

Everything is orange. From the lights to the whiskeys glowing softly behind the bar, to the orange flowers arranged on the bar corner. Orange and warm. Or perhaps it’s simply the heat off the radiator beside which I sit, sipping rosemary gimlets with Art Director Suvi Haering. Outside, Berlin bites furiously at the ankles of...

Built up and built down, the skyline of this city never stays the same

+ The Williamsburg Hipster

It didn’t take long; Within twenty-four hours of returning to Brooklyn after a three year hiatus, I only had to traverse the length of half a block from south third to south second on Bedford Avenue on a Friday morning to have The Williamsburg Hipster present itself in my route. I do concur, it looks...

October 13 2009, I left. When did you leave? But it’s not a city you can entirely forget is it? Because you’re remembering the guttering rush of the metro aren’t you? You’re smiling at the skyline of city lights reflected down onto the river aren’t you? You’re tasting the coffee at that little spot where...

ODIN creates a masterpiece for their fragrance collection: NO.2 OWARI. This unisex scent in a gleaming black bottle comes packaged within a matte black box. Delish! It has top notes of owari mandarin, bright green bergamot, and grapefruit leaves while the heart consists of the intensely vibrant Cubeb pepper and Tonkin musk. There’s an underlying...

Two years ago, December saw me in a 13 square metre attic flat at 54-56 rue Charlot. I had to climb five flights of stairs after which I then ascended a final flight of cramped treads into my Parisian flat, the smallest of three vacation flats owned and rented out by a homosexual couple. When...

+ les accessoires

OK, so you really desire an Anderson&Sheppard or a Kilgour but since it’s a bit out of your price range, you don your paper thin summer suit for lack of anything better in looking autumn-dapper. You step out into the cold winter air and will perish from pneumonia or frost bitten toes. But don’t despair...

For some of my dear readers, you’ll recall these images. And even the loft if you kindly took the time to ride the JMZ into outer space – Halsey Stop. I discovered these images while digging through the plethora of files under the hard drive folder entitled “Stuff 2”. Stuff 1 folder was too full...

Ladies and Gentlemen, take a close look – black silk tie neatly fastened with a silver tie bar and the peek of a silk pocket square – THIS you only get in New York City. The daily wear of this young architect modulates classic tailoring with urban chic. Quite interesting what you find on NoHo...
