Bianca Pratt is an ultra-stylish New York jewelry designer, who creates simple elegant fine jewelry collections inspired by her Brazilian/Canadian Heritage. Based in downtown New York’s hip TriBeCa district, her idea of the ultimate luxury is a five-star hotel and spa escape in the French or Italian Riviera.
Share your ultimate global travel destination?
Italy, especially Capri and Positano. And I love Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the south of France. I stay at the Four Seasons Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, it’s like a palace.
Where have you ventured this summer?
I’ve enjoyed local getaways. I recently stayed at Twin Farms Vermont, they have these luxe farmhouses and cottages and the nature and food is spectacular. The cuisine is fresh farm-to-table and they specifically curate all of your meals. I also visited Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut, it’s a gorgeous country retreat and the spa is excellent. I’m about to head to The Point Resort in The Adirondacks for hiking and boating on the lake. It’s owned by the Rockerfellers and has a traditional rustic log cabin vibe.
What is your idea of luxury?
Staying at top hotels in incredible destinations with an amazing spa and restaurant.
Describe your signature personal style?
Classic with a sexy edge. I love Gucci, Balmain, IRO, Saloni, Proenza Schouler, and Gianvito Rossi shoes. And of course, jewelry. I wear these pieces from Bianca Pratt Jewelry: Sparkle Chain, Franco Chain, which I layer, and the Libra Zodiac Ring because I am a Libra. My most treasured possession are my diamond earrings.
Tell us about your beauty routine and products you can’t live without.
I’m obsessed with May Lindstrom skincare, especially the Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm, The Clean Dirt Exfoliant, and The Youth Dew Serum. I also like Mineral Fusion makeup, they are beautiful and free of fragrance and chemicals so perfect for sensitive skin.
Divulge your favorite spa and treatment?
The Ritz Club at The Ritz Hotel in Paris. It has a gorgeous mosaic-tiled pool and all of their signature treatments use Chanel skincare. I love their massages and body scrubs. I also love the treatments at Spa Nice at Four Seasons Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, how can you not love being pampered on the French Riviera.
What’s your go-to culinary hotspot?
Jean-Georges, the famed French restaurant on the Upper West Side overlooking Central Park. I always order the shrimp salad. For cocktails with a killer view, Jean-Georges Nougatine. I also love the Drawing Room at The Greenwich Hotel in my neighborhood.
Describe your interior design style?
I live in a classic TriBeCa loft and so I mix traditional with modern. I like New York based interior designer Victoria Hagan for her elegant New American classic style. You’ll find photos, orchids and crystals on my coffee table.
Do you have a favorite artist?
I love the old masters, Rembrandt and Johannes Vermeer.
What’s on your listening/reading playlist?
I’m reading Grow young with HGH by Dr. Ronald Klatz, it offers a medically proven plan to reverse the signs of aging and elevate your health and wellness. It’s fascinating. I love self and relationship empowering meditations and podcasts by Oprah & Deepak Chopra and psychologist Tara Brach.
