We head to the Big Apple with Studio w and fashion icon Bonang Matheba.
Studio.w is synonymous with urban life. With that comes style, travel and discovering new cities. And what better place to do this than New York where we go behind the scenes on the Spring/Summer 2016 campaign shoot.
Supermodel Andreea Diaconu is very familiar with the jet set life, having walked the runway for the likes of Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Prada. She’s also been the face of some top luxury brands from Balmain to Gucci. This Studio.w collection is the perfect capsule wardrobe for the urban lifestyle. Monochrome pieces mixed with pops of print in easy wearing fabrics making for an ultra-chic look.
Armed with Andreea's hotlist of what to do in New York, Bonang hails a cab and heads off to see where the fashion set hang out. First stop; craft coffee shop Everyman Espresso. This area of New York is Andreeas’ back yard - a historically creative hub and home to many artists and writers. It’s also the location of the next stop on her hot list, Mast Books, a regular with local fashionistas.
Spot number 3 on the list is Chef Jody Williams’, Buvette Gastrotheque – an old world café that’s Andrea’s favourite brunch spot. For a lazy afternoon on a hot Summer’s day in Manhattan, Central Park is the best place to grab a pretzel, Andreea’s top New York City snack. For dinner with a touch of class, spot no 4 on Andreea’s list is Freud. It offers a contemporary take on brasserie fare inspired by turn-of-the-century Vienna in the Heart of Greenwich Village. The dishes created by Austrian Michelin-star chef Eduard Frauneder.
