Why did you curate the Ecuanese Cups and Porcelain Vases by Lorena Barrezueta? I'm a huge fan of Lorena's - these vases and cups have fun patterns and I love the color palette! I love the concept of something appearing to be simple and almost ordinary, but upon closer inspection you realize how unique it really is.
Favorite meal: Right now, roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and red wine.
Book/film recommendation: Pride and Prejudice directed by Joe Wright—so beautiful!
Restaurant recommendation: Dell’ Anima in New York City.
If I had $20, I’d… : Buy as many peanut butter cookies as possible from Bouchon Bakery.
Transformative travel experience: Tulum, Mexico. I stayed in a private hut on the beach with no phone, TV, Internet or electricity after 11 p.m.
Favorite neighborhood: NoMad, that neighborhood north of Madison Square Park and west of Fifth Avenue, by the Ace Hotel.
Recent big aha!: A black leather belt from Billy Kirk with a completely concealed buckle. It was something I had designed in my head a thousand times, but not nearly as nicely!
Dream holiday: The Maldives.
If I could solve one problem, it would be: World hunger.
I wish people cared more about: Each other.
