A Costume Master

Santo Loquasto

By Yona McDonough

You may not know the name Santo Loquasto, but you have most likely have seen his work.  Loquasto has designed scenery and costumes for some of the biggest names in the business, and his skill sets ranges from classical ballet to Broadway, and from live theater to film--with a healthy dash of opera tossed into the mix.  I met with Loquasto on muggy August day at the Margot Patisserie on 74th Street.  A modest man with a dapper beard and killer smile, he sips an iced coffee while we talk; every now and then, he flashes that dazzling smile.

The Hamptons in the City


Christopher Fischer Cashmere is all about being innovative and setting new trends. His pieces below are great transition pieces for the Upper Eastside customer who may have spent their summer in the Hamptons or elsewhere on a beach. They are stylish and sophisticated, but also have a penchant for luxurious comfort.  These are recommendations directly from Christopher Fischer for a Hamptons lifestyle in the city. Enjoy! •
