YEAR 02 | Travel Light

February 2010

A long weekend at the Chelsea Hotel NYC, the rest stop for rare individuals. Late nights and lazy mornings. Casual but elegant somehow; the perfect five-piece-wardrobe. All fits in a simple black bag. 

The philosophy of choosing your luggage well, and keeping it light - physically and mentally. To leave some space for new experiences. 

You're surrounded by history. Strange, mysterious sounds and smells coming from the other rooms. Chilly marble floors in the corridors and the stairs, coloured walls with paintings and photographs from the past times. Dusky thick air and nostalgic tunes from inside another room. 

Room number 221. The wintery, desaturated skyline of the big apple outside the old windows. Whilst the sun sets: a drink on the bureau, an unmade bed, reflections of all tomorrows parties. 

The Chelsea Hotel is a historic New York City Hotel and landmark located on 222 West 23rd street. The hotel has been the home of numerous writers, musicians, artists and actors. The first collection of 5preview was produced this year and was inspired by the motto – “Travel Light”, with 5 pieces the collection was wearable with its simplicity. The editorial was shot by Paola Ambrosi De Magistris for 5 PIECE PAPER nÂș 2.
