New York Guide

A constellation of hidden treasures

In a city that is constantly moving, we turn to the French art of flaneuring where we find ourselves wandering with intention, gravitating to places that offer a sense of calm, an endless abode of inspiration, mindfulness, and scrumptious delights. Enjoy the flaneur guide to our home city, New York. 


An intimate and serene oasis located in Long Island City, where form, nature and simplicity meet in a space designed to inspire a sense of tranquility. Noguchi was designed by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, one of the most innovative and influential sculptors of the 20th century. His use of natural materials like stone and wood, as well as man-made materials like steel and glass, creates a sense of harmony between the organic and the industrial.The museum features a minimalist aesthetic with clean lines and open spaces and is the perfect place for quiet contemplation and reflection. 


Located in New York’s oldest neighborhoods, The Ludlow embodies a romanticized take on the vibrancy and history of the Lower East Side, while also bringing in elements of European architecture and food. The bathrooms have to be one of our favorite parts of the hotel. From their sheer size, to their elevated essentials like the plush bathrobes and bathmats commissioned from Maison Margiela, you will surely find yourself spending your vacation in the incredible deep soaking tub while gazing out over a city that stretches out below you. 


Café Kitsuné’s origins began in Tokyo where Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki created a space that uniquely blended the classic Parisian café with Japanese traditions. A microcosm of a certain joie de vivre, Café Kitsuné is the perfect place to grab a coffee amongst the comfortably cultivated atmosphere that feels like a slice of Paris in New York. 


Nestled in the Lower East Side within the opulent Nine Orchard hotel is Corner Bar, an upscale American Bistro that makes you feel like you’ve just been transported into a Godard film. A comfortably elegant space with simple but thoughtfully prepared dishes by chef Ignacio Mattos, Corner Bar serves as a charming respite from the bustling city. We recommend trying their seasonal fresh sorbets like the that provide a balanced ending to a perfect meal. 


Located on Hester St, Bode, founded by Emily Bode is a clothing boutique that offers an intimate space where slow living meets slow fashion. Brimming with one of a kind garments created using unique fabrics and artisanal detailing, Bode welcomes you into a relaxed, intimate and welcoming atmosphere inspired by an old American hotel lobby.

Less is More

Skinmalism is all about embracing a less is more approach to skincare, using fewer products with higher quality ingredients. The cultural shift towards skinmalism is a reflection of our society’s need to simplify our routines, and focus on restoring and protecting our skin barrier. It’s a way to go back to the basics without sacrificing results.
