TASTEMAKER TUESDAY

 

RECYCLE

What pieces and/or designers in your closet do you find yourself wearing again and again?

I always try to buy something I really love so I can wear it over and over. I have multiple tunic dresses with bright, quirky prints from the Brazilian brand Neon that I really love and put on whenever the temperatures go up! I also love my chunky heavy long-knot cardigan from Yigal Azrouel and a kimono-like wool coat from H&M for when the temperature drops. Also, my newest crepe dress from W/// by Weltenbuerger that transforms into multiple different dresses depending on how you rearrange the straps. I’m so in love with it!

 

REFUEL

Favorite dining spots?

Marlow and Sons in Williamsburg is always wonderful. I also love Do or Dine in Bed-Stuy for their incredibly creative and savory dishes: their sweet potato Bibimbap is a serious mind-blowing dish. Barboncino is great for when I’m craving the style of pizza from my hometown of São Paulo.

  

RELAX

Where in the world do you travel to for peace of mind?

I definitely love the desert in the West Coast. It always makes me happy. 

  

READ

What’s currently on your nightstand?

My husband’s most recent graphic-novel Red Light Properties.

 

RUN

Workout regimen?

Pilates, dance and long walks in the city.

 

REINVENT

In terms of emerging designers, who is reinventing the wheel?

I don’t know if Stella Jean is an emerging designer, because I feel like she’s blowing up everywhere, but it’s all so new and fresh.

 

RITUALS

Any beauty rituals you swear by?

Sleep, facial massages and coconut oil.

 

REPEAT

What music are you currently listening to?

Francis Bebey, School of Seven Bells, Nicholas Jaar, old school Pet Shop Boys, sets from Mike Dehnert.

 

REMARQUE

Any art galleries you frequent? Who is hanging on your walls?

I find a lot of inspiration in galleries I wander into on foot around Manhattan and Brooklyn, the random finds that happen by chance. . I also loved Art Basel Miami last year and saw amazing work at the Pulse and Scope Art Fairs.

On my walls, I have some 1980s paintings of tropical birds I bought at a São Paulo outdoor antique market from my last trip there.

 

REFRESHMENT

Go-to libation?

Old Oak from Angel’s Share. Anything with smoky flavors will get my attention as well as Jura Wine.

 

REWIND

What film could you watch over and over?

Any of the Wong Kar-Wai and Alejandro Jodorowsky films. Recently, I’ve been obssessed by Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive. I’m normally not into the vampire subject, but this one is.
