This season’s uptown girl in New York

Uptown will be the place to go this New York Fashion week, as many designers like Rachel Comey (dinner at Met Breuer), Tory Burch (Cooper Hewitt Museum), Gabriela Hearst (the Pool Room at the Four Seasons ), Eric Schlosberg and Dennis Basso (The Plaza Hotel) will show their collections Upper East.

IRMA shares her favourite places uptown

ALBERTINE
This French booksshop uptown has everything that is going on in French literature, E-books, events, magazines and readings . The athmosphere is very St. Germain and you meet the Francophile living in New York. Love to dip into a little French mode even when in NYC

 

NEUE GALLERIE
This museum of early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design in the William Starr Miller House  is one of my favourite museums. I love the Museum shop for unique presents and currently  the Richard Gerstl retrospective is worth stopping by ,through September 25, 2017.

 

THE WUNDERKAMMER AT CREEL and GOW
Find fascinating and exquisite objects from around the world by Paris based Jamie Creel and former Sotheby’s expert Christopher Gow. This place is the perfect resource to embellish one’s life with originality

The boutique is located in the former stables of a historic, Grovenor Atterbury’s townhouse, which makes a perfect location to get into the mood for the Kunstkammer.

 

A CLASSIC, THE MET, but…
… The Frank Lloyd Wright Room which was originally the living room of the summer residence of Frances W. Little in Wayzata, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis is worth the visit again and again.

The room epitomizes Wright’s concept of „organic architecture which relaxes the eye and is a perfect break

PURE YOGA
If you prefer doing Yoga by your own with a private teacher but your hotel room is too small book a private session in a private room at PURE YOGA. An urban treat with relaxing lounges, eco-friendly locker rooms and Kiehl’s amenities.

THE FUEL STOP:
Just landed and feeling a little jet lagged stop by the Fuel Stop and dip into the „Urban Anti-Spa“ of 15 min „Optimize Yourself“ circuit an Instant Glow facial Cryo,  B12+D3 vitamin shots to boost energy and your immune system and a customized IV vitamin to push for energy and detox, exit this Cryo day spa with a Brain Floss cocktail instead of coffee for sustainable energy and focus. Off you go to the next show, dinner party or  your super important business meeting.

 

THE EAST POLE RESTAURANT
If you are tired of fancy finger food and opulent dinner parties visit The East Pole Kitchen & Bar, located in a landmark Upper East Brownstone which is a perfect for a farm-to-table dining experience. Simple homecooked food that tastes delicious and looks beautiful.

 

VICEROI Roof Top Bar
Is the place to go on a clear late summer night when the sky shines pink pink and it is still warm when the sun goes down. sipping regionally brewed craft bear and eating their signature burger is a perfect place for an early night.

KENTSHIRE,
because jewellery with a history is always more fun, “starred” in Sex and the City—and been seen on Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, and other famous fans of Edwardian, Victorian, and Art Deco

Designs this place is a must especially for this seasons XXL Earings trend.
