When I leave, I want to take this picture with me. The Empire, the Chrysler, the reflections, the myriads of windows. The stories that go on behind them that I cannot even begin to imagine.

What could possibly ever top a talk with the rather marvelous and surprisingly funny Mr. Jon Hamm aka the Dapper Mr. Draper? Only another talk with the rather brilliant designer and accomplished gardener, the quietly elegant Mr. Dries Van Noten himself.

PS: I couldn’t resist
But I will generously spare you of yet another Valentine’s post and heart-shaped pink boxes and roses and such. Here is, instead, a message from a random guy, on a random wall, somewhere in Lower Manhattan, back in 2017.
I hope it helped him find joy – notice a piece missing?
Peace x Love,
I would have spared you of yet more photos of the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center had it not been for this exquisite costume designed for Birgit Nilsson, for the 1961 production of Turandot, by the multi talented Mr. Cecil Beaton.
I had ample time to be bedazzled as I used the intermission to join that familiar long line to the Ladies Room. Gazing at her headpiece, it thought it was matched only by the Sputnik chandeliers in sparkle.
But, while Turandot is my favourite opera (and Nessun Dorma my favourite aria of all times), that evening we were there to enjoy the ever so charming Die Zauberflöte. It was as grand as a Metropolitan Opera production was expected to be. Birgit Nilsson in Turandot, 1961. Photo from the Metropolitan Opera Archives
