I spoke with the advertising exec-turned-designer Geren Lockhart last week about why she has decided shutter her label—and what's next.
Designer Geren Lockhart, of Geren Ford fame, is traveling up a storm this autumn, and she's decided to tell Fashionista readers all. This installment of "Travels with Geren" takes us to London. When/Where: London November 22–26, 2010 Why: Outside of Los Angeles and NYC, I have more friends in London than anywhere else, and the art is the best on the planet right now. I saw more art in the days that I was there than I have collectively all year long: in small galleries, some of the best museums, and in the street. It’s sort of overwhelming how amazing it is. Best Meal: I was extremely lucky in London, each meal was the best because I got to sit down with friends I haven’t seen in forever.... Here’s a list of the great restaurants I visited while in London. From fancy to local, each meal was divine!
Designer Geren Lockhart, of Geren Ford fame, is traveling up a storm this autumn, and she’s decided to tell Fashionista readers all. The second installment of “Travels with Geren” takes us to Barcelona…. When/Where: Barcelona, November 17-21 Why: Meeting up with a chef friend who worked at El Bulli for four seasons and knows the city’s food scene inside and out. Best Meal: Deep breath…this one is hard to answer…. It’s every meal to be honest, BUT Dos Palillos was to date the best meal of my life: 23 courses of magic at every turn. And because I was with a chef who had worked with Albert, the owner and chef, when they were both at El Bulli, it was an amazing evening, to put it mildly. You'll find the best mojito on the planet at La Whiskeria just around the corner from Dos Palillos--if you’re there you might just see the staff of the restaurant joining you after they finish service for the night.
Designer Geren Lockhart, of Geren Ford fame, is traveling up a storm this autumn, and she's decided to tell Fashionista readers all. The first installment of "Travels with Geren" takes us to Hawaii. Next week, she's visiting New York City.... When/Where: Honolulu, October 29-31 Why: I love a quick getaway to Hawaii--Oahu is actually my favorite island. There are more tourists, but along with that comes a great deal more going on. Plus, it's the capital of the state, so there's a good bit of local fun to check in on. Oahu also has some of my favorite beaches in the world. Best Meal: Dinner at Town: They use mostly local ingredients and the menu that changes daily. Townkaimuki.com
