Curriculum Vitae Q&A with Métier London's founder and designer.
Astrological sign? MM: Taurus
Lucky number? MM:5
Favorite color? MM: Green
Morning, noon, or night? MM: Morning. I am definitely at my best first thing in the morning.
Uptown, midtown or downtown? MM: Downtown (and Brooklyn).
Oscars, Tonys or Grammys? MM: Oscars
Met, MOMA or Movies? MM: The Dia Beacon and Storm King are my two favorite places to check out art in NY… also love visiting all the galleries.
Football, baseball, or basketball? MM: Tennis actually! I grew up playing and still love it.
Green tea, black tea, or herbal tea? MM: Green. Obsessed with Matcha.
Sugar, Splenda, or Stevia? MM: None! If its good quality, sugar isn’t needed.
Red, white, or rosé? MM: All… depends on the season. I love to follow the seasons with food and wine. It keeps it fresh – literally.
Spicy, salty, or sweet? MM: Salty then sweet and repeat. Also not averse to combining the two – chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite.
Sandwich, soup, or salad? MM: I am on a real soup kick at the moment. So easy to make and very comforting for winter…
Black, white or color? MM: All black or all white. Very little color!
Is your closet messy or neat? MM: An organized mess. I have different systems to help keep me organized with minimal effort – similar as to how I have designed my bags. Everyone imagines I am super organized, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. I try to create ways to keep myself in one piece with minimal effort.
What’s your favorite room? MM: My bedroom.
What do you collect? MM: Vintage watches
Dream dinner guest? MM: Michelle and Barack (completely uncensored). I would have so many questions.
Sunday ritual? MM: Pilates in the morning, visit an art gallery in the early afternoon, then make an early dinner and hit up my yin yoga class. As much as I love to travel, I am equally a home body. My Sunday routine definitely sets me up for the week.
MM: Favorite ﬂower? Sunflowers. They are tall, strong and bright.
Cheat meal? MM: My mom’s grilled cheese (with American cheese and white bread…)
Talent you’d like to have? MM: I wish I could sing… I am sadly hopeless.
Quality you want to be remembered by? MM: A blend of polar opposites. I am a walking dichotomy, which is reflected in my work. I worked tirelessly to have each of my pieces balance being equally lightweight as durable; organized yet effortless, perfected craftsmanship yet relaxed. I double majored in sculpture and business – I love art as much as math. I want things to make sense, but in a completely effortless and authentic way.
Best thing about New York? MM: The energy – there’s absolutely nothing like it anywhere else.
What does Considered Luxury mean to you? MM: Thoroughly perfected, timeless, purposeful, authentic, uncompromising.
