The May issue of fashion bible W magazine features the Tribeca apartment of one of today’s hottest designers, Alexander Wang. It comes as no surprise that the 2,200 square foot downtown loft is the epitome of cool. It’s modern and sleek with rich, lush and luxe accents, plus hints of seventies disco.
According to the story by New York Times style writer Holly Brubach (who was the previous tenant in Wang’s apartment), the interior was designed in collaboration with decorator Ryan Korban and outfitted in black and white — “white walls, black velvet couch, black Karl Springer coffee table, black crocodile dining chairs, black Serge Mouille floor lamps, a pair of dining chairs covered in black goat fur, zebra rugs, a black fox throw,” Brubach writes. “An entire black menagerie seemed to have given their lives for the privilege of a place in the home of New York’s hottest downtown fashion designer.”
You can see the reflection of his home (and overall supercool aesthetic) in his fall 2011 collection:
It is clear why fashion fans — from Park Avenue princesses to East Village hipsters — are clamoring to dress in his designs: he knows style.
