Dear friend of La Bagatelle,

I’m not a New Yorker, I’ve never lived in New York, and many people know it way better than I do. However, it is one of my favourite cities, and I have been coming regularly for over 25 years. For a decade when I had no children to take care of I went to New York for Fashion Week twice a year, I have been coming for work with campaign shoots and I have been coming for holidays. I have been there on a very sparse budget as well as a more comfortable one. So what I am sharing now is not the best guide you’ll ever find to New York, but it is my list of go-to-places when I am there. Places I would be sorry to miss. And remember that the best thing about guides is not neccessarily following them, it is that they inspirere you to dream.

Lots of love,
Malene Malling
