My NY: Leigh Lezark's Local Hot-Spots

leigh-lezark-my-ny-main
We wouldn't immediately peg Leigh Lezark, one third of the DJ trio The Misshapes, as a Matthew Williamson kind of chick. While the stylin' spinner seems more at home in black than bright, Lezark is changing up her look by serving as an inspiration to the British designer, a collaboration that resulted in a limited-edition silk caftan commissioned by Belvedere's newest offering, Pink Grapefruit. The high-end vodka-maker is known for bringing on fash-forward folks to create one-of-a-kind creations, and this summery confection is no exception, with a dreamy shape that's perfection for a night on the town or a day on the shore. We thought nothing could be more fun than to celebrate this partnership with a look at the Lezark's fave places in the city, from the coolest dance party in town to vintage good enough to display behind the turntables.
