Introducing our latest series of Move With Lee, shot on location in New York.
We took on the city that never sleeps first hand and spent a few days getting to know a bunch of local legends to find out more about how they survive the concrete jungle, their fave neighbourhood haunts and how they like to style their Lee denim.
First up is one of our fave stylist and artists – Kate Carnegie. Born in Melbourne, Kate trained at Central Saint Martins in London where she completed an internship at British Vogue. She is currently based in New York where has been honing her skills as an artist, fashion stylist, photographer and creative director amongst other things. We shot Kate at her local Bodega in Chinatown.

Meet Eddy, one of the city’s hottest restaurateurs and former personal mixologist of Justin Timberlake. This former Melbournian, who takes the word “charismatic” to a new level doesn’t do things by halves, having recently opened a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown of all places. A bold move by New York standards but one that has certainly got the tick of approval from the likes of The Kardashian clan and top models Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge who have all been spotted at Chinese Tuxedo.
