Maison Kayser – Eat like a Parisian in New York City

September 17, 2012

 

La célèbre Maison Kayser s’est invitée dans l’Upper East Side le mois dernier, alors comment résister ? Boulangerie-pâtisserie-café-restaurant, cet endroit voué au succès sent bon le pain chaud et l’espresso quand on y franchit les portes. Le design est très parisien et l’atmosphère bruyante : pas de doute, on est bien à New York.

NY Fashion Week – Streetstyle #5 / Prints

September 13, 2012

 

I can surely declare that this season, printed patterns took over the dominant solid black typically present at Fashion Week. There were prints on so many people running to shows that it was a festival of forms and colors at the Lincoln Center this September. Whether it was animal prints or geometrical prints, two color prints or more color prints, you could see printed designs everywhere: on dresses, pants, shorts, skirts, hats… Fashionistas mixed them with a plain piece of clothing or just wore the same pattern from top to bottom for a total look. Bold people even mixed different prints and wore them together. Oh man, you gotta love those prints!

NY Fashion Week – Street Style #4 / White pieces

September 12, 2012

 

Have you ever asked yourself the question: what will happen to me if I wear white after Labor Day? Probably yes, because this ¨no white after Labor Day¨ rule is known by everyone and keeps prospering every year. It is in everyone’s mind that white is considered a ¨no can do¨ after that day and that is why every year, on Labor Day, I see so many people wearing their favorite white pieces for the last time.

 

 
Multiple explanations come across to find a reason for such a strict rule. The oldest explanation says it was set by high society families in the early 1900s. It is also said that summer comes to an end on Labor Day, and after that, everyone is back to work or school. Wearing white helps keep you cool during the hot days but with the arrival of fall, there is no need for that anymore. If you are in New York, however, the weather can still be hot until the end of September. By the way, isn’t it the official end of summer on September 22nd?

Manger dans une Farmacy à Brooklyn

September 12, 2012

 

A New-York tout se fait et manger dans des endroits insolites fait partie de la vie quotidienne de tout bon New-Yorker. C’est pourquoi manger dans un endroit nommé Farmacy n’a rien d’étonnant. En fait ça l’est pour moi, car quand on me dit pharmacie, c’est l’odeur nauséabonde et la vue des médicaments qui me donnent tout de suite mal au cœur. Rien à voir avec ce qu’on connaît, ici la prescription phare est la crème glacée et le soda homemade. Tout de suite ça va mieux !

 

L’atmosphère est particulière dans cet endroit inspiré des années 1920 au décor mi-apothicairerie avec ses tiroirs au mini format, mi-diner avec son long bar et ses tabourets en cuir. L’ambiance est accueillante avec des serveurs et serveuses souriantes et la nourriture délicieuse.
