Hotel Chelsea

The Hotel Chelsea is being renovated and turned into a luxury hotel. Host to famous artists, writers and musicians all the way back to Mark Twain, and too many more to mention here, the Hotel Chelsea is a New York institution, and the change to a luxury hotel seems somewhat scandalous. In memory of the seedy art haven of the past, I put together some outfits befitting some of the more notorious residents.

Nancy Spungen - troubled teen, sufferer of mental health issues, punk scene fixture and (often demonised) girl-friend of Sid Vicious.
  1. Striped sweater, Marks & Spencer
  2. Leather shorts, Iro at Net-a-Porter
  3. Jose pyramid bracelet, Philippe Audibert at Farfetch
  4. Flame calf stiletto sandals, Camilla Skovgaard at Cocosa
Janis Joplin - needs no introduction, really. I'm curious about the upcoming biopic in part due to the surprise casting of Amy Adams as Joplin, but mostly because of the costumes.
  1. Glitter dress, Maje at Vestiaire Collective
  2. Rosarietto gold-dipped agate necklace, Rosantica at Net-a-Porter
  3. Stacking rings, Astley Clarke
  4. Prasiolite ring, Federica Rettore at Farfetch
Patti Smith - the musician's androgynous style perfectly suits this season's masculine tailoring.
  1. Black jacket, Stella McCartney at Net-a-Porter
  2. Black trousers, Stella McCartney at Net-a-Porter
  3. White shirt, Thomas Pink
  4. Suede mary janes, Miu Miu at My Theresa
  5. Tie, Reiss
Viva (Janet Susan Mary Hoffmann) - socialite, Warhol Factory actress, and mother of Gaby Hoffmann.
  1. Silk blouse, Closed at Stylebop
  2. Velvet mid rise skinny trousers, J Brand at Flannels
  3. Boots, Lodi at Zalando
  4. And, because she's a socialite, I've included a fab, way expensive necklace by Ippolita at Net-a-Porter
