Part Proust, Part Vogue's 73 Questions, and Part Colbert Questionnaire, Elyssa Zerelli, F.P. Journe's Advisor and New York Events Manager, answers The Daily Grail Questionnaire.
What’s your favorite time of day?
For a summer in New York, 7pm - usually the time I go home and start cooking dinner. On vacation and out of the city, anytime when the UV index is at its maximum - so usually 11.30am-3.30pm!
Last meal: where, what, and with who?
My dad’s pasta, back home in Marbella, with my family and my partner!
What is your greatest extravagance?
Way too many of them…But the one I am (almost) not ashamed of would be Chanel.
Song on repeat?
My partner would argue that I play ALL of my songs on repeat; but more seriously: for a night out - Stone Flower by Namito (Satori Remix). During the day - Inner City Blues by Marvin Gaye.
What is your most treasured possession?
A material one would be my Daytona 116520; but my actual most treasured possessions would be my multi-cultural background (call me cheesy)!
My Ashai bag or any fun strap that I can add to any watch!
What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
I once started a harissa brand called Halyssa - still a work in progress!
Best action movie?
Kill Bill all the way.
FPJ Centigraphe in red gold is one of them but the list is long.
What is your motto?
“No problems, only solutions!”, to myself; and “good things take time” to my clients!
Aureta, she’s the only influencer I follow and she would make me wear a trash bag if I see her wearing one. She’s my fashion and lifestyle guru.
What do you want to be remembered for?
Being a good friend/partner; and not caring about people’s judgment.
