The Five at Five: Naomi Gunther
5 May 2022
From hidden-gems to places to people-watch, from bookshops to beauty spots – here is some inspiration, celebrating the independents in our local neighbourhoods around the world.
This week’s selection has been curated by Naomi Gunther, the founder and designer of GUNTHER PARIS. After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York, Naomi launched the luxurious yet contemporary, eponymous brand. Her vision? To dress the modern man, in chic yet relaxed clothing crafted from responsible materials.
All of GUNTHER’s designs are manufactured in Parisian workshops, and Naomi ensures the brand works towards her sustainable and ethical ethos. The use of organic, natural or recycled raw materials, as well as short-circuit production cycles, are part of an approach that aims to be as eco-responsible as possible.
“Carbone in New York City is my favourite Italian restaurant in the world, and also the place where my boyfriend proposed to me. So, it holds the best memories.”
“The most inspiring place in the world to watch people would be the Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo. The energy, the organisation mixed with the frenzy is so unique in the world.”
“I love Smith & Son in Paris, located on Rue de Rivoli. You can find amazing and rare fashion books and magazines there.”
“My favourite spot would be Scorpios, in Mykonos. You can rest on the beach, have an amazing massage hearing the sound of the waves and get delicious detox drinks.”
“The best city to shop in would be Paris for me. You can find all types of styles, brands and inspiration and mythical department stores.”
