From the Upper West Side of New York, Batsheva Hay has reimagined prairie dressing for the world over. Her use of floral prints, metallic and vintage fabrics has meant it's unlike anything you might imagine and everything you want to wear. Here she shares some of her favourite films, books and comforts for these weeks of being at home.

Films to Watch

I have shown my kids all of my childhood favourites. Also, any old movie with a big star - Gilda, for example - hits the spot right now. Seeing a modern movie is not what I want right now; I want to go to the past.

Books to Read

I have read zero books. I blame my kids. Actually, I started Hunger by Roxane Gay and I love it, I love her. I am reading a lot with my kids; Madeleine and lots of Doctor Seuss.
