Pizza, vintage, art: a designer’s guide to NYC

E Nolan’s namesake, Emily Nolan, has an eye for design – her made-to-order suiting is high on our obsessions list, and her campaigns always ignite a desire to escape the city (or order McDonald’s french fries). Her travel list is equally covetable, and from vintage treasures to cheese pizzas, Nolan shares her tips and memories from a recent trip to NYC.
