Vogue catches up with six of New York's coolest (and of course offensively good looking) couples to talk style, onions and sharing clothes. To be honest it's all a bit of a wank, but the clothes are pretty which is the main thing right?
One | Vanessa Traina & Max Snow
“The cool thing about New York is that you can go anywhere in anything, as long as you look good,” says Snow, a photographer. Traina, ever the stylist, isn’t afraid of bending the rules. “I never treat pieces like they’re too precious,” she says. “The clothes that I wear to black-tie events get dressed down for casual cocktail parties.”
Two | Dree Hemingway & Phil Winser
Hemingway, a model and actress, had her first date with Winser at the Fat Radish, the farm-to-table gastropub he owns on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. “He was in huge ski goggles, chopping onions!” she says.
Three | Laure Hériad Durbriel & Aaron Young
The couple mix work and pleasure like a fine art, with the Manhattan-based artist himself usually in a uniform of jeans, Prada jacket, and battered boots while his fiancée, the proprietor of Miami Beach’s boutique the Webster, favors chic bohemian capes and long dresses.
Four | Rachel Chandler & Tom Guinness
Chandler, a photographer, shares an affection for Savile Row suiting with her model-turned-stylist husband and isn’t above swiping button-downs from his wardrobe—something Guinness almost seems to encourage. “There’s a sophisticated rebellion about her that makes everything look even better,” he says. “After all, it’s the woman that makes the clothes—not the opposite.”
Five | Jasmine Tookes & Tobias Sorensen
The pair—both models—met in a Manhattan nightclub over the summer, though these days they prefer to spend their weekends lounging at home with their dogs. When they do hit the town, certain standards apply. “I’d never go out without a great pair of heels on,” says Tookes, who wore Christian Louboutin Mary Janes on their first date, at the Jane hotel.
Poppy Delevingne & James Cook
Though the pair—she’s a British model living in New York; he works for his family’s aerospace business and lives in the English countryside—are rarely in the same place long enough for Delevingne to switch her Pucci dresses for his Dior jeans and Lanvin shirts, that will change when the pair marry next year.
