Inspiration: Conversations With Aerin

Home for the Holidays

Our Style Director and Founder and Creative Director
of AERIN shares everything to do, eat, see and smell
in New York City for the holidays.

THE QUINTESSENTIAL ACTIVITY
“Skating in Central Park is always fun with hot chocolate and a pretzel.”

MOST SATISFYING MEAL
“Via Quadronno is delicious for a fondue dinner. It’s a cosy Italian neighborhood restaurant that makes it feel like you’re in the mountains.”

CHICEST SWEETS
“Sockerbit has the most beautiful candies from Europe and the best Christmas licorice. Go to William Poll for the most amazing Christmas cookies and
gingerbread houses.”

GIFTS TO GIVE AND RECEIVE
“I’m loving the AERIN Leopard Pony Zip Pouch, our soap trio [featuring Lilac Path, Waterlily Sun and Amber Musk], travel gold hairbrush and comb, the Essentials Makeup Bag and the Weekender bag, which is great for men or women.”


MUST-SEE DECORATIONS
“57th Street is always festive—the snowflake outside of Tiffany’s and the Bergdorf Goodman windows are always magical. The Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue windows remind me of childhood.”

CROWD PLEASING PRESENT
“The new Disney book by Taschen is great for all ages.”

CULTURAL TOUCHSTONE
“There’s nothing more festive and nostalgic than going to see The Nutcracker and watching the snowflake dance.”

DINNER WITH FRIENDS
“The Bar Room at the 21 Club. I always get the Creamy Chicken Hash or the 21 Burger with their special sauce.”

COVETABLE SCENTS
“Amber Musk is perfect for this time of year. I’ll wear that during the day and then Evening Rose at night.”
