Designer, Peter Som
What's on your holiday wish list?
"A Lemlem scarf — I love the colors, and it will keep me warm all Winter long. A trip to The Standard Miami — a mid-Winter getaway to the sun is what every New Yorker dreams of! And, a Brooklyn Cruiser (left, $499). I live near the West Side Highway bike path — this will get me to work and back in style."
What's the best gift you've ever received?
"For my 40th birthday last year, friends put together a video of old photos and messages — my life was flashing before my eyes; it was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. There wasn't a dry eye in the house — even the wait staff was in tears!"
What's the best gift you've ever given?
"One year for my mom’s birthday I surprised her by flying home to see her — she's pretty unflappable but she was very surprised!"
Any fun holiday plans this year?
"Christmas in my hometown, San Francisco, and then New Year's in Palm Springs at The Colony. Can't wait!"
