Misha Nonoo is a fashion designer with a truly international perspective. Born in Bahrain, she lives in New York, and studied in London and Paris.
As a frequent flier herself, she was the perfect partner for us to collaborate with when designing our Luxury Travel Essentials For Her and Luxury Travel Essentials For Him. So with her finger on the pulse and as an Englishwoman in New York, we asked her for her top destinations in two of the world’s greatest cities.
Favourite independent boutique
“My favorite independent boutique is Dover Street Market in both London and New York. The space itself is amazing and has the most innovative and creative pieces to shop.”
“Banter in NYC is this amazing café around the corner from my office and has this delicious Tangerine Ginger tea. Ralph’s in London is a great place to stop when you’re out shopping.”
“The bar at ISABEL is my favourite in London and I love going to the Bowery Hotel or Little Branch in New York. But in my opinion, the best bar is in my apartment because it’s always filled with my favourite friends and spirits!”
“The Palomar in London is outstanding, and I love the décor of Tutto il Giorno in New York, which also has spectacular food.”
Favourite hidden gem
“In London, I go to Daunt Books, which has a beautiful interior. I also love visiting the Dia:Beacon galleries in upstate New York. It’s the perfect day trip for New Yorkers to get out of the city and see some amazing contemporary art.”
