At just sweet sixteen, Manon Macasaet stands out in the downtown NYC cool kid scene. An integral part of an up-and-coming group of creatives (re: Lily Rose Depp, Luka Sabbat and Sabrina Fuentes), we’re not surprised the New York native has been featured in Mass Appeal, frank151, DIS and more. With a sun-drenched room full of skate decks and stuffed animals, we got a peek at the life in the life of the coolest teen we know.
