Imagine a grand, opulent historic space filled with a hundred influencers and the event industry’s elite enjoying curated bites and sips. The room suddenly goes dark, illuminated by a single spotlight, then filled with the rich sound of a solo voice — that of veteran opera singer, Sandra Piques Eddy. She stands in the circle of light against a stark, glam backdrop of white velvet draping, performing “Habanera” from the iconic opera, Carmen. When she reaches the piece’s crescendo, the drapes dramatically part, revealing an all-white dinner-in-the-round lit almost solely by flickering candlelight — beauty and surprise distilled into one breath-taking vision.

What does it take to get Anna Wintour, Condé Nast artistic director and editor of Vogue, to Brooklyn? Ten up-and-coming designers and a drive for diversity in fashion — which is to say, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards ceremony and dinner. This year, it extended its inclusivity from people to boroughs.
“I’m most excited to see Anna,” beamed Teyana Taylor, dressed in a body con minidress from former CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists Baja East at this year’s gala dinner—in Brooklyn!—at iconic landmark institution, The Weylin.

There aren't many places in New York, or anywhere else for that matter, that feel as cocooned from the outside world as the live room in Electric Lady’s Studio A. Designed to Jimi Hendrix’s specifications, the curvy space is stocked with shiny vintage gear, faded Persian rugs and a cosmic, wall-sized mural. On this Sunday night in September, a little after 9 p.m., the room’s sole occupant is a slight, strikingly handsome 24-year-
"We’re basically dating now.” A glistening, bathing suit–clad Bella Hadid is towering over the luckiest 12-year-old boy on the planet. He has just spent the last 25 minutes dancing his little heart out to ’80s electronic music with the model of the moment for her Teen Vogue video debut. “You better change your Facebook status,” Bella purrs playfully while hugging her dance partner goodbye. She slips away, leaving her tiny costar helplessly grinning behind Coke-bottle glasses, his red-hot cheeks betraying all attempts at playing it cool.
A Landmark Restored, From Mosaic Marble Floor to Grand Dome. As sumptuous as a jewel box suspended 110 feet over the mosaic marble floor, and as radiant as a peacock’s plumage, the great dome of the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank headquarters at Broadway and Driggs Avenue once again inspires awe.
When the Williamsburgh Savings Bank completed its headquarters in Williamsburg in 1875, Brooklyn wasn't yet a part of the City of New York, but it had a growing, bustling financial district that could rival Wall Street.
In 1875, George B. Post and Peter B. Wight designed the Williamsburgh Savings Bank in Brooklyn with exquisite interior decorations of tiling and mosaics, patterned wallpapers, a frescoed dome, carved wood and stone, and bronze and gilt work. After years of decay and decline, the building — which has been designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
This season, Balenciaga serves up mineral-inspired texture and prints, as well as sharp silhouettes that take on a surreal sensibility. For the Barneys lookbook, we chose to take the collection somewhere equally stately, with both classic and modern appeal: the Weylin B. Seymour’s building is on Broadway and Driggs in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Okwui Enwezor ha organizzato biennali in tutto il mondo, da Johannesburg a Siviglia, passando per Parigi e Gwangju. Nel 2002 ha diretto Documenta, la più grande rassegna d’arte contemporanea al mondo, e ora arriva a Venezia per inaugurare la “sua” Biennale.
“I would say the neighborhood has changed more in the last eight to nine months than in the last eight years.” So declares South Williamsburg resident Sarah Natkins, who moved to her apartment on Wythe and South Eighth Street back in 2006.
Two years ago when we first caught wind of the the launch of Shwick Market, it was still a dinky affair in out-of-the-way Bushwick. Since then, their effort to highlight made-in-Brooklyn goods has outgrown that location and evolved into a rotating pop-up more than 100 vendors strong, with about 80 percent of wares made right in the borough. (All the rest are still conceived of and designed in New York, even if the fabrics come from far away places).
A few weeks back we did a shoot at Weylin B. Seymour’s, one of the most stunning new venues in Brooklyn. When we first laid our eyes on this gorgeous space we couldn’t wait to come back with a truck full of stuff and snap some pics. We’ll show you how it all went down.
