Claire Distenfeld

Claire Distenfeld’s incredibly curated boutique, Fivestory, is no doubt an Upper East Side staple. However, rows and rows of Acne, Roland Mouret and Peter Pilotto are not the only thing filling Distenfeld’s days. On the contrary, her personal story involves five stories of food, as well as fashion.

We shot Distenfeld in her realm of style amongst five of her favorite things in food: Caviar, Tequila, her dining standby Le Charlot, a collection of trinkets she’s ‘borrowed’ from around the world, and smoked fish (which – due to the mess – we replaced with a to-die-for Alexander Wang smoking jacket that is just as salivating). Peruse, shop the shoot, and get inspired for your Wednesday lunch, which we now expect you to make far more interesting…
