Peter Davis is as New York, as well, New York. Growing up on the Upper East Side Peter quickly made the city his own. Eventually landing at Paper Magazine, where his style really came to life. Since then Peter has made a name for himself reporting on the people, places and things he loves most. And with one of the most unique closets we’ve ever seen, it’s only natural that we’d asked him to share his style list with us.
