The city is also incredibly inspiring and energizing, with new trends emerging daily. Restaurant for Business Lunch: Core Club. The food is always good, plus it’s near the office, which helps on rainy days. 66 East 55th Street; 212-650-9442 Restaurant for Celebrations: Picholine. A great combination—ambience plus non- fussy French food. 35 West 64th Street; 212-724-8585

Chocolatier: Li-Lac Chocolates. Beautiful and delicious handmade chocolates. The chocolate-dipped fruit makes a great hostess gift. 40 Eighth Avenue; 212-924-2280
Clothing Store/Business: I shop many department and specialty stores, but the Derek Lam Boutique on Madison Avenue is my new favorite. 764 Madison Avenue; 212-493-4454

Vacation Spot: I love to travel, so it’s hard to narrow it down. My last trip was to Buenos Aires and Mendoza in Argentina, so for the moment, those are my favorite spots.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can.

Among the familiar faces at @off____white’s show was a surprise figure: Japanese artist @takashipom, pictured here on Wednesday morning. Other show-goers included @jerrylorenzo, who spoke about his upcoming project: a @nike collaboration for back to school, with designs inspired by his childhood on the West Coast.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
