NYC According To Ariane Goldman

In honor of Hatch’s fall collection (inspired by that effortlessly chic Parisian style), we asked founder and mom of 2 for her favorite French haunts in NYC.

arianeAriane Goldman is the founder and designer of Hatch Collection, every stylish pregnant woman’s dream come true. But what we love most about the line is we still reach for those pieces on the regular years later – and not because we haven’t lost the baby weight. It’s because the silhouettes look beautiful whether you’re pregnant or not. It’s that magic – spun with cozy, rich fabrics – that makes Hatch pieces the second-best parting gift from pregnancy.

Hatch’s fall 2016 collection is inspired by that effortlessly chic Parisian style – think airy blouses, embroidered trims, and luxe jacquard fabrics. That Parisian vibe seems to be second nature to Ariane – when we see her around town she’s projecting it in a graceful, I-want-to-be-her way, whether she’s at a work event or hitting Central Park with her kids.

We hope to channel the NY-based designer and mom of two, starting with her favorite Parisian-inspired spots around the city. So throw on a flattering jumpsuit, and read on for her favorite haunts!
