Soho, New York

In the years since Sarah Gittoes and Robert Sebastian Grynkofki founded their eponymous jewellery label, Sarah & Sebastian has reached cult status. The delicate, modern pieces, which are stocked in boutiques around the world, and have appeared on the runway at New York Fashion Week. “New York City is my favourite destination,” Gittoes says. “It’s an inspiring city brimming with all things creative.” She let us in on her idea of the perfect New York day.

Start the day with breakfast at

Friedman’s Lunch in Chelsea Market for a quick coffee and light breakfast of egg white scramble, followed by a morning walk along the High Line and checking out boutique galleries such as David Zwirner and Gagosian.”

The best shopping precinct for boutique fashion is

Soho – without a doubt! This area has everything from high street – Cos – to high-end ­such as Celine and everything in between, like Acne. I particularly love walking along the cobblestones of Mulberry Street, around to Mercer Street and, finally, visiting the famous Taschen Books on Greene Street.”

The best shopping precinct for vintage fashion is

“Arguably Greenwich Village and Brooklyn. However, I make a special trip to Erstwhile (Fifth Avenue) and Erica Weiner (Nolita) for their amazing vintage jewellery collections. The beautiful detail and craftsmanship of vintage jewellery always inspires the construction of my future collections.”

One shop you can’t miss is

The Apartment by The Line [Greene Street, SoHo] which approaches retail in a uniquely personal way, showcasing a combination of fashion, beauty and homewares in a carefully curated setting. I appreciate beautifully handcrafted objects and on my last trip I purchased a brass key ring designed by Carl Auböck; it’s simple and high-quality and speaks directly to the aesthetic of the The Line.”

Best market for a fashionable find is

“The Brooklyn Flea at Fort Greene for handcrafted goods from up-and-coming designers and artists. The mixed crowd makes for great people-watching, too.” 

The best beauty spot to indulge is

“The Aire Ancient Baths in TriBeCa which recreates the concept of Greek and Roman baths. I recommend booking a Flotarium (salt bath) session as the perfect cure for jet lag.”

End the day with…

“A cocktail at The Leadbelly in the Lower East Side, followed by dinner at The Fat Radish. The Fat Radish is intimate little restaurant with a focus on seasonal produce. It has a wonderful ambiance with an excellent playlist.”
