  • 3 On September 10th, FASHION, New York: A week to the starter of weeks, New York Fashion Week kicks off. Coffee cups will hit the streets pre and post the dozen of runway shows happening over the next seven days.

[Of note] the ceramic cups are custom-made by the American Memphis artist Peter Shire, and furniture is by Prouvé from Mr. Saraiva’s own personal décor.” Given that is known for combining forms of art together, this – art and coffee – it should be no surprise that both are also the other, art as coffee and coffee as art, lets visit Café Henrie Stat.
