I just love the pretty Fashion Insider’s Guides by Carole Sabas, the NY based journalist of Vogue Paris. They are pocket sizes and yet the addresses are essential to any fashionista travelling to NY, Paris or Miami (Miami The Fashion & Friendly Guide).
The restaurants are edited by type (girly lunch, japoneses, juices bar …) You can also find the fashion institutions and the secret addresses of fabulous vintage boutiques or even beauty spots and yoga and pilates centers. Even the phone numbers of coaches and fashion info which are so hard to find as a tourist like the best laundry that will not ruin your Celine coat or your red soles shoes.
The best part of the guides are the key addresses of the fashion insiders, such as Trattoria Sant Ambroeus one of Grace Coddington's favourite restaurant or a japanese place where you may bump into Marie-Amélie Sauvé and Mario Sorrenti .. Now I look forward to the LA Guide, so Carole if you read this!
