Hello Mr. Hoffman: East Hampton

Jun 16 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

Hello Friends! This week I’m writing after a lovely weekend spent on Long Island’s south fork village of East Hampton. I’m a year older and hopefully a bit wiser so I hope you enjoy my picks for what to eat, drink, and see while escaping New York. BOSTWICK’S CHOWDER HOUSE Best lobster roll in town! This seafood shack on the border of...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: Currently Coveting

Jun 09 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

A BIGGER SPLASH Director Luca Guadagnino’s erotic thriller set on a remote Italian island is the filmic equivalent of the perfect early summer beach read. The tale centers on a Bowie-esqe rock star played by the flawless Tilda Swinton (who never fails to look fantastic, even in the most compromising and unglamorous scenes) and her boyfriend vacationing while Swinton’s character...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: Nantucket

Jun 02 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

For the Memorial Day holiday I was lucky enough to decamp to Nantucket for a glorious extra long weekend. While the lion’s share of time was spent soaking up the sun and reading (I dare you to put down Sweetbitter once you pick it up) I did manage to get out of the house a bit. Herein lies my list of favorite ACK...

Lemonade Weeks after its semi-surprise release on a Saturday evening at the end of April (which happened to coincide with the second night of Passover; a coincidence that had me interrupting a Seder and causing a small scene to ensure that I didn’t miss a single moment of the premiere on HBO) I’m still sweet on what I believe to be Beyonce’s career defining...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: The Met's Mechanical Madness

May 04 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

The Met Gala/Ball/Red Carpet Extravaganza is something I look forward to every year, and this past Monday’s laughably unimaginable theme, Manus X Machina, was really no exception.  While I maintain that the team of curators, fashion historians, publishing executives, and anyone else involved in producing the mega-event that kicks off the spring costume institute could have dug a little deeper...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: Kapital Sock Diary

Apr 28 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

Trend setting Japanese brand Kapital and their line of visually impactful socks have long been a personal favorite on the site. So for this week’s edition of Hello Mr. Hoffman I decided to photograph my favorite pairs juxtaposed against the textures, patterns, and decor of my apartment (much of it sourced from C+L).  Herein lies my Kapital Sock Visual Diary.  If the mood...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: Brother Vellies

Apr 21 2016 Filed in: Designer SpotlightHello Mr. Hoffman

Behind the buzz, the TV show, and the plaudits from Anna Wintour Brother Vellies’ Aurora James is just a cool chick making socially responsible, design forward shoes. Designed in New York and manufactured by small communities of artisans in South Africa, Kenya, and Morocco – Brother Vellies is more about creating a product that champions community and sustainability rather than creating the next ‘it’...

Hello Mr. Hoffman: I’ll Follow You Anywhere

Apr 14 2016 Filed in: Hello Mr. Hoffman

@Simplicitycity Models, interiors, advertisements, Kennedys, travel – none of the photos showcased on Simplicitycity’s account are taken from our time, or even our millennium, but somehow they manage to be uncannily chic and almost startlingly of the now. Some of the faces featured are recognizable, others are less so, but all posts seem to stir something in me. They make me want to know...

For this blustery early spring week I bring you another edition of Currently Coveting… Long Lunch at Joseph Leonard While Joseph Leonard is an impossibly adorable spot for a meal any time of the year, as a recent visit for oysters and pate post-blizzard will attest to, there is something particularly magical about dining there in the warmer months. Situated...
