1. The new Bergdorf Goodman handbag floor. Hayward just launched our Fall 2106 collection and couldn’t be more honored and delighted to be on display in such a beautiful newly designed space. Our Venetian brocade bag was made exclusively for Bergdorf’s.
2. The new restaurant on the Upper East Side, Cafe Americano, with it’s delightfully sensual interior design and delicious food and drinks. It is the place to have a bite this fall. Very atmospheric!
3. Design on Lex on October 13th will be the time to celebrate the biggest block party on the Upper East Side. Ranging from East 65th St to East 75th St – it promises to be a night to celebrate one of the oldest remaining historic areas in Manhattan that is renown for its unique spirit with its array of artisan shops, restaurants, galleries and florists – all who will participate. At Hayward House, we will not only be showcasing the new Hayward collection, but also the Hopper sunglasses, tee shirts, hats and Carl Aubock objet – along with a specially curated collection of vintage photographic books. We have invited designers and artists, hailing from California and New Mexico – from Natalie Martin and her beautiful collection of gorgeous soft suede clothing and printed dresses, and Haley Alexander van Oosten of L’Oeil du Vert fame, her seductive line of scented oils and fragrant feather pieces to exquisite pottery from artist, Logan Wannamaker. Jeweler, Anna Sheffield, will be launching her exquisite Heritage Collection of jewelry as well. It will be a night filled with fun and excitement!
4. The launch of the new photographic book “Colors” – which is the follow up to my father’s book, “Drugstore Camera.” This book will be the next chapter of his photographs where he discovers LA in a new medium as he visually prepares for his film by the same name. Very excited to be able to see this body of work highlighted. LA through his eyes. The best!
5. The new fall show of Josef Albers photo collages at MOMA. I have always been a big fan of Albers paintings and drawings from his iconic series “Homage to the Square”. This show will be most unique as it will include the hardly seen photo collages during his time as a teacher at Bauhaus 1928-1932. I am most excited and interested to explore this body of work at MOMA which has been carefully curated and collected by the museum.
