Each week, Alexa is rounding up the buzziest fashion drops, hotel openings, restaurant debuts and celeb-studded cultural happenings in NYC.

It’s our curated guide to the very best things to see, shop, taste and experience around the city. 

What’s making our luxury list this week?

“Succession” star Jeremy Strong and “The White Lotus” alum Michael Imperioli face off on stage, the Whitney Biennial draws crowds of art lovers and Macy’s Flower Show is about to bloom.  

While members got access and Instagram bragging rights over a week ago, this week brought the much-anticipated opening of the 81st Whitney Biennial to the general public.

Whitney Biennial 2024: “Even Better Than the Real Thing” features seventy-one artists in a presentation of “the most relevant art and ideas of our time,” showcased in the museum’s gallery spaces, as well as a series of film and performance programs that will be made available online.

Diane Von Furstenberg has partnered with her granddaughter Tatiana (who also happens to be the co-chairwoman of DVF) on a collection for Target that drops tomorrow.

It of course includes several styles of the iconic wrap dress that catapulted the 20-something-year-old elder Von Furstenberg onto the fashion scene 50 years ago.

But it also includes a range of beauty (sheet masks, sleep masks) and home items, including furniture — benches, chairs, screens and a headboard — that will be made-to-order in a choice of the designer’s classic prints. 

Available tomorrow at Target


“A lot of us grew up skating in Gap gear in the 1990s,” says Lev Tanju, founder of London-based skate label Palace. “Gap is so cool to us.”

Tanju is no doubt stoked to launch a line of adult pieces, along with his label’s first-ever kids clothing line, with the decidedly American brand he idolized.

Palace Gap launches today with a 55-piece, ’90s-inspired collection — including preppy classics like a varsity jacket, oxfords, rugby shirts and the requisite track suits, plus board shorts, cargo pants and logo hoodies.

Available today at Gap


A new adaptation of the Ibsen classic “An Enemy of the People” (by Tony Award nominee Amy Herzog) brings “Succession” star Jeremy Strong and “The White Lotus” vet Michael Imperioli together on the Broadway stage.

Despite being written in 1882, the play’s storyline couldn’t be more timely: it involves a small-town doctor (played by Strong), polluted water and a potential lockdown of said small town.

Comedy it is not.

But the staging is relatively brief by recent standards (just over two hours) with no intermission — just a 10-minute pause in the action that we hear involves a shot of aquavit for the audience.

Beginning Sunday, thousands of blooms, plants and trees will transform Macy’s Herald Square for its 49th annual flower show — creating a larger-than-life garden on the department store’s main floor, balcony and windows.

This spectacular blooming-in-unison event is free to the public, and runs through April 7.

New this year: a fragrant pop-up with Christian Dior Parfums celebrating “Miss Dior,” the maison’s first fragrance, which originally debuted in 1947.

Legendary nose and Dior Perfume Creation Director Francis Kurkdjian has reinterpreted the historic parfum, “infusing it with today’s youthful spirit,” which guests can sample in the “Miss Dior” Gallery.
