Tastemaker: Eric Wilson’s Summer Getaway

“I go away to the Catskills. I love the peaceful quiet of the woods.” — Eric Wilson, InStyle Fashion News Director

Kate Gilman is looking to shake up the floral industry, one bouquet at a time. The New York native was on track to become a lawyer before she opted for a 180 and became a florist. And key to her new concern, which launched this spring: sourcing locally and being environmentally conscious. So all her blooms come straight from New York farms (no mileage racked up in coolers on planes) and are delivered straight to the client by bikes (further lessening the carbon footprint). Here, Kate talks to us about her business, Petal by Pedal, and shares a few insider tips on floral care.

“You could say that I am a student of photography, and I am,” photographer Garry Winogrand once said. “But really, I’m a student of America.” And, indeed, walking through his new retrospective at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is like time traveling back, getting a glimpse at Postmodern America from New York City to San Francisco and all points in between. Winogrand captured that era like no other — from the streets, cataloguing the every day, decades before street-style photography would be de rigueur. And the Bronx native was incredibly prolific, shooting some 26,000 rolls of film in his lifetime and an extra 6,600 rolls he himself had never seen, many of which are being printed for the first time for the exhibit. Garry Winogrand is on view till September 21.

Tastemaker: Cindi Leive’s Upstate Getaway

“My summer getaway is definitely my place upstate. We have an old farmhouse that’s about two hours from here, and there’s nothing to do, which is perfect. It’s just about food and drink and swimming and more food and more drink.” — Cindi Leive, Editor in Chief of Glamour

Here, discover all their summer loves.

Keeping with one color scheme as seen here — from the pillows to the hand-painted Mexican plates and cups — keeps the look simple yet chic.
