About five months ago I stepped into Hayward House and immediately saw that it was a retail experience like no other. Hayward House is located in the Grosvenor Atterbury Mansion in the Upper East Side and contains the flagship store of the brand Hayward, founded by Marin Hopper (daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward). Part retail, part home, part old New York, Hayward House contains thoughtful details at every turn.
Yesterday I dragged Bogdana to the Upper East Side to photograph this beauty of a store, and she left with her jaw dropped, commenting it doesn’t get much more New York than that. While Bogdana snapped away, I sat down and chatted with Marin about how Hayward House came about and the family details she infused in every corner.
Shiny Looks That Are Perfect for the Holidays (and Every Other Day)
Easing myself into iridescent attire, I started with chunky, rainbow-like sneakers from Steve Madden and paired them with a metallic-flecked sweater by DEMYLEE. While I’m newly a fan of sneakers (you can read about my journey here), I felt completely at ease in this look. Perhaps my favorite pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans and vintage, oversized blazer (similar style here, at H&M) had something to do with it. I went with a brocade mini shopper bag by Hayward for a shimmering finish, which to me, felt like the perfect accent to the rest of my subtly shiny ensemble. This outfit barely garnered a head turn, which is not to say I didn’t enjoy it (or feel somewhat out of my comfort zone, because I did). To me, this look is the ultimate foray into iridescent life.
