In New York with Alice Petit

We’re crossing the Atlantic again! After accessories designer Hugo Matha, it’s time for Frenchie Alix Petit to give us her top tips on the Big Apple. We couldn’t really say no, as who better than the designer of hip brand Heimstone to give us the low-down on all the unmissable spots in NYC? After the presentation of Bloom, Heimstone’s SS16 collection, in Paris last month, Alix is now back overseas, where she’s been based for a couple of years now. Golf with a view, cold beer and the tastiest Acai bowl ever – read on to discover New York with Alix Petit!

Breakfast: Two Hands, for a healthy and tasty breakfast. They have the best Acai bowl in NYC as well as delicious coffee, and everything is prepared with passion ! 164 Mott Street

Lunch: the eternal Café Mogador in the East Village. Everything is delicious, and a little bit Morrocan-inspired. 101 St Marks Place

Shopping: in the afternoon, go to Melet Mercantile on Wooster Street, the Aladdin’s cave of Ralph Lauren’s Vintage buyer. You have to book an appointment as the showroom has no direct street access. 84 Wooster Street #205

Relax: a spot of golf above the Hudson River on the Chelsea Piers, perfect on a sunny day. The location is incredible.

Drinks: always and forever the Bowery Hotel. I love the decor and the backpatio is so lovely. 335 Bowery

Dinner: I recommend Uncle Boons, an oustandlingly good Thai restaurant. The beer is always cold. A great New York atmosphere ! 7 Spring Street
