#85: Beverly Nguyen
Beverly Nguyen on Piaule Catskills Hotel, Dr Clark’s, Maggi Seasoning, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked cool person Beverly Nguyen to come on Perfectly Imperfect & redistribute her good taste.
Beverly Nguyen is a freelance fashion stylist and brand consultant based in New York City and Los Angeles. She got her start as an intern at Vogue and eventually worked her way up to becoming a stylist at Kate Young Studio, but her most recent endeavor is Beverly’s, a beautiful space in Chinatown selling an impeccably curated selection of household essentials. It’s a great spot to go whether you need the perfect Martini glass or cast iron pan, linens produced by her parents, or a bottle of Olive Oil she’s producing in collaboration with a family-owned farm in California. She even has a brand new store opening at Rockefeller Center on June 25th! Beverly clearly has great taste and lucky for us, she’s here to talk about what she’s been into.

🏕 Piaule Catskills hotel opening July 2021
The most quietly elegant hotel is opening up next month with a spectacular spa and views tucked in the deep Catskills forest. Piaule launched as a home interiors line- glassware, ceramics, towels all brilliantly useable and now will be for sale on site at the hotel. You’d be playing yourself not to reserve a room now.
🧵🪡 Cafe Forgot
The best thing to come out of fashion retail in a minute. The people behind cafe forgot have great taste, a unique vision for clothing, and a youthful but intelligent way that gets people inspired to spend time in their space and want to spend money.
I love the attitude at dr Clark’s. Designed by a couple of geniuses, the food and the interiors is delicious and beautiful. It’s a perfect neighborhood spot.
I have been going here for years but the pandemic really made me miss large scale art forms. Isamu Noguchi is one of my favorite artists and you can experience his love for sculpture and respect for space through the entire museum.
💼 OFF-SITE.STUDIO presents SIZED LA
An exhibition of art and home objects curated by Alexander May who has gathered some of what I would consider the most exciting artists and designers together to occupy a space that will inspire you and make you want to spend all of your money.
I’m obsessed with this account on Vietnamese refugees who redefined their identities through new wave. The documentation and references are incredibly preserved. Not to mention the photography and style is serving major attitude. My parents were apart of the same period and region so I’m loving the celebration.
I’ve recently been reconnected to a childhood household ingredient that was commonly used in my Vietnamese upbringing . We put it on everything- eggs, rice, vegetables, soups. I thought it was soy sauce but recently found out it originated from Switzerland! The taste is super rich in umami and can turn any dish into a delicacy and the packaging is not to be overlooked.
