What's New

This week we’re highlighting a new pop-up shop, how to support the AAPI community with a bake sale, and introducing you to two cool new friends: Trinity Mouzon & Issey Kobori of superfood brand, Golde.

Culture Corner


Jewelry store, Muse x Muse is popping up in the West Village at 605 Hudson Street RIGHT NOW! selling truly iconic and unique jewels. What we love most about this pop-up shop is that there is another pop-up outside in collab with floral designer boo•kay. Head to Muse (today or any other Friday in April from 12-6pm ) to snag one of their colorful bouqs with proceeds going to the Actors Fund!


Beverly’s Shop, a new housewares popup just opened its doors in the Lower East Side and we haven’t been this excited for a new shop in a loooong long time. Go snag a bottle of olive oil and some other goodies before the short stint ends on May 31st...fingers crossed we’ll see a permanent location soon.

Brooklyn’s favorite film studio, Bushwick Community Darkroom, has the world’s best vending machine. The studio recently started a film vending machine outside of the darkroom that’s open alllll day. Need more film or a new disposable camera at 1 am? They got you. Head to 110 Troutman Street in the ‘wack to grab some for yourself.


West~bourne, the mission-driven & veggie-forward SoHo restaurant, is having a bake sale that you should definitely know about. They’ve created a custom olive oil cake (with bergamot & lavender) with all proceeds donated to support Heart of Dinner. This organization works to end food insecurity for Asian-American homebound elderly. The bake sale will run every Friday through the month of April, and all orders can be picked up at Essex Market on Delancey & Essex. Head here to purchase a cake & donate!!

We’re avid readers of the weekly artworld gossip column: Wet Paint by the ever-hilarious Nate Freeman (expect to see a lot of orange ‘Wet Paint’ hats around Dimes Square this summer). Among many things that caught our eye in last week’s column was news of a new gallery opening in Tribeca. Theta will open tomorrow, April 10 at 185 Franklin St.

Cool Friends:
Trinity Mouzon & Issey Kobori

Meet Trinity & Issey - the duo behind superfood self-care brand, Golde. After launching with just one product (their turmeric latte blend), Golde has expanded to offer a selection of products that celebrates superfoods and what they can do for your body. 

How did you begin your superfood self-care brand, Golde?
We started Golde 4 years ago from our Brooklyn apartment on a mission to make wellness fun and easy for all. Golde was really our answer feeling caught between the "crunchy granola" stuff we'd both grown up with Upstate, and the next wave of stuff that was so prestigious that it was totally out of reach. We worked with a couple of friends and taught ourselves how to do the packaging design, product photography, even the manufacturing. We were the only two full-time employees until last year. Now we're a team of ten, which is wild!

What’s your favorite part about the New York creative community?
A lot of the time New York feels like a small town. You can run into a friend while sitting outside of your favorite coffee shop, and catch up on all the awesome stuff they're working on. Everyone's always got something new to share, and they're always looking for ways to hype one other up. 

What’s inspiring you right now?
We've actually been back home in Upstate New York for the past few months, and that time with nature has been really nice. We're deep into gardening right now, and it's been cool to learn about how we can build sustainable little ecosystems in a backyard that support wildlife populations, plant diversity, soil health…we're wondering how we can bring that energy back to NYC too!
