PICTURE THIS: Master illustrator Donald Robertson needed only 24 hours to draft colorful sketches of 15 members of the fashion, design and art establishment for Sant Ambroeus’ SoHo location. Thanks to manager Alireza Niroomand, Valentino Garavani, Naomi Campbell, Riccardo Tisci, Giovanna Battaglia and Leandra Medine are among the 15 fashion insiders who now have their likenesses on one-of-a-kind bags that are framed and hanging on the walls of the Lafayette Street eatery.
While the now-framed personalities are familiar faces to Niroomand and his staff, “Drawbertson” had a little trouble picturing every last one. But with a little help from Google, the artist was well on his way with the entire project done-and-dusted within one day. His “Friends of Sant Ambroeus” project is also meant to celebrate the eatery’s one-year anniversary.
