THE NEW YORK DIARIES – DAY 3


Another rainy day, on and off but not as bad as day 2. We headed to Soho for breakfast then to R by 45 RPM where D proceeded to try on every scarf in the shop before buying me a nylon puffa neck-warmer. As we were paying for it, in walked Lauren Hutton! I tried to keep my cool while frantically mouthing and head jerking to D. She was wearing lime green high top Cons, a denim knee length skirt, some sort of blue outdoorsy jacket (isn’t she a hiker?) and a straw (straw!) backpack. She looked amazing. And she tried on a neck-warmer thingy like mine.

Then to Prada where D wanted to buy a shirt he’d seen in London. Beautiful store, it was like being in a film and I don’t care if it’s fake, I just love being asked ‘how are you’ when I walk into a shop. Unfortunately they didn’t have his size but they did have a lovely little blue man-clutch which I just couldn’t resist for myself. Well, it’s an investment isn’t it?
After lunch, more meandering and yet more shopping, this time for a giant suitcase to carry all our wares home in, we went to the movies. I love seeing films in New York, I have fond memories of seeing my first Sofia Coppola and Miranda July films there. We decided on Wild Combination, a documentary about Arthur Russell (no, me neither), an experimental musician and disco producer who frequented the legendary New York Loft parties and died before his time in 1992. It was a great little film and quite moving at the end. There was only a bit of footage of the Loft parties – I would have loved to see more of that time – but lots of interesting characters and storytelling. Little did we know that there would be a Q & A with some of the participants immediately afterwards and it turned out D knew a couple of them so we chatted to them for a while after the Q & A session. D was pretty hyper all the way home and wore me out with his excitement so we had a quick bite to eat then straight back to the Bowery’s fabulous marshmallow pillows and 400 threadcount sheets.

    LOVE the blue man-purse. I often find that I prefer men’s satchels/messenger bags to the frippery that’s out there for us scholarly women . . .

    Lauren Hutton! Ah I would have not remained cool. Isn’t the Prada store on spring and broadway a dream. They are so nice to you in there always even when you don’t buy!
    Of course am loving the film bit – I had no idea who but the ambience sounded great.
