LONDON CALLING

with fashions elite. With New York Fashion Week in their wake, celebrities, fashion editors,
bloggers and digital influencers alike are marching into London
one pair of Jimmy Choo’s at a time.

London, its just got that live now die later attitude. With a seemingly infinite list of things to do and see, after a weekend in London you’ll need a week in the Bahamas to recover. So let’s get started, we’ve put together a list of things for you to squeeze into your schedule, perhaps between Burberry and Christopher Kane?  

It just so happens that Totally Thames, a festival that celebrates the history and culture of London’s River Thames with artworks and events staged along the river’s banks, coincides with London Fashion Week. Make sure you sneak a peak of “Floating Dreams” by artist Ik-Joong Kang. The colossal, illuminated box appears to float ethereally on the Thames while sporting hundreds of drawings completed by Koreans who fled south after the country divided.

If London Fashion Week’s got your inner shopaholic all rowed up, then start your Sunday at the Brick Lane Markets: you’ll find anything from cheap leather goods to stunning silk silhouettes. Be sure to grab breakfast on-the-go from one of the many Jewish bagel shops. If you’re looking for more of a fine dining experience, make a reservation at Dishoom. Inspired by Bombay café culture, Dishoom is an Indian restaurant that will have your taste buds wishing they were sipping mango lassies in Mumbai.

FCUK IT, LET’S GO TO NEW YORK

There is no denying that New York is no friend to those who fear the burden of choice.
Lucky for you, we have put together a list of NY’s finest hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars to help transform the Big Apple from an overwhelming concrete jungle to something shaken,
not stirred.

PILLOW TALK

Even devoted manhattanites are tempted by Williamsburg’s Whythe Hotel, a refurbished textile factory with an industrial, luxe aesthetic. This hip hotel sports one of the coolest rooftop bars in Brooklyn, with insta-worthy views across the East River to Manhattan. Perhaps The Ludlow Hotel is more up your alley. This boutique hotel, tucked away on the Lower East Side, is the perfect place to kick back by the fire and enjoy their speciality cocktail, the Chai Matsuda.

FORK OUT

For your morning dose of caffeine and acai, we recommend The Butcher’s Daughter;
a plant-centric juice bar and cafe in Downtown New York. Be sure to book yourself into Vandal, which has proved itself to be a popular dinner spot among manhattanites.

For all you sweet tooths out there, check out Momofuku Milk Bar for a Birthday Cake Shake and a piece of Crack Pie. If you’re looking for a mind blowing way to spend your Saturday in the city, catch the L train to Smorgasburg; an open air food market that is fast becoming the food mecca of Brooklyn. Make sure you try the Ramen Burger. You’ll have to see it to believe it.

LOUNGE AROUND

If there is one thing NYC is notorious for it’s rooftop bars. Sip on an Espresso Martini
seven-teen stories up at Pod 39, or wet your lips with a refreshing Margarita at Le Bain
on the top of The Standard Hotel.

CITY PLAYLIST

Theme Song from New York, New York – Frank Sinatra
New Dorp. New York – SBTRKT feat. Ezra Koenig

WHAT TO PACK

It’s all about the nonchalant look. New Yorkers celebrate the effortlessly cool.
Don’t over think it. Stick with your go-to denim, pair it with a 90’s inspired logo tee
and throw it back with a bomber.

BREAKFAST HOT SPOTS

After some lengthy, in-depth research involving lots of hot cakes, poached eggs,
a smattering of acai bowls and many, many servings of avo and toast,
we’ve tracked down the newest and coolest brunch spots across the country
(yes, it’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it….)
