New York Fashion Week – 8th – 15th September
Tribeca Loft, Tribeca
This quirky loft apartment boasts light-drenched, airy spaces, original modern artwork and all the mod-cons anyone could wish for. Tribeca, the local neighbourhood – the ‘Triangle Below Canal Street’ – was colonised by artists in the 1960s and 1970s. The area’s buzz and creativity certainly extends to the interior of this unique space, which is filled with incredible artwork from the owner’s personal collection. The expansive, open-plan interior and ‘conversation-starter’ artistic creations make it the perfect after party hangout and the numerous brunch hotspots on its doorstep give guests plenty of options for recharging batteries before hitting the shows again the following day.
Sleeps 4-6, Price from $12,250 (£9,450)* per week

Edgy décor and urban touches provide an ample dose of cool while delivering all of the luxuries you would expect from The Luxury Travel Book. Whether guests want to hang out with the young and beautiful in a trendy nearby bar, catch some rays on the building’s sun terrace or sample New York’s finest Michelin-starred cuisine, the choices are endless. But with a pad so plush, guests may just wish to spend a night in.
