Where do you go for your inspiration?
Bouchra: Everywhere! I love the individuality and diversity of New Yorkers. I’m also inspired by the very unique architecture that can take you from a cobblestone street to a very tall and modern high rise. Sometimes I just sit in a coffee shop, sip my drink, and watch people.
Name three of your favourite brunch spots.
Sophie: Café Gitane, Standard East Café and Il Buco Alimentari.
What’s your favourite thing about the city?
Bouchra: How raw and real it is.
Which AUrate collection best sums up the spirit of New York?
Sophie: Definitely the Icon Edition. It’s cool, minimal, unique, has an edge but still feminine and elegant. Very New York.
What’s your go-to New York style.
Bouchra: Chic with an edge.
