Meeting Adam Aleksander is itself an experience. He dresses like a modern New York City revision of a 19th-century flâneur, and the scent of his cologne, which is noticeable but welcome, smells like you’re skipping through a British flower garden.
Adam is soft-spoken and kind, but he gets giddy when speaking of his many inspirations and projects. He has low blood sugar, so the day we sat with him, he was snacking on a grapefruit, which enhanced his sweet-scented charm. It was a delight to chat with him, and it’s impossible not to admire the man’s commitment to experience.
Read on for Adam’s tips for catching inspiration, his love for the hospitality industry, and his favorite part of any party.
