‘Toronto is having what the fashion world lovingly refers to as a “moment,” and—splitting her time between the Canadian city and New York—Vogue.com contributor and budding design entrepreneur Sophie Young is perfectly poised to experience it in the city’s epicenter… [The] tight-knit family of six travels via floatplane from Toronto regularly on weekends to their cottage on a fir-lined island in Georgian Bay. The cedar interiors and faded furnishings conjure summer nights filled with good food and great conversation—a haven in which to recharge before heading back to Toronto’s ever-increasing hustle and bustle.’

AD | GILLES MENDEL’S GRAPHIC NYC APARTMENT

Category: Fashion, Spaces

EXCERPT:

In his personal life, however, Mendel has been downsizing. He and Kylie Case, his partner and muse, have shoehorned themselves into a high-rise apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood that measures an intimate 732 square feet. There’s one bedroom. One bath. Two closets. But the walls are glass, the views are unobstructed, and at night, when they look out at the city and the sparkling Hudson River, the lack of square footage doesn’t really matter. In fact, this is exactly what they want.

Downtown beckoned. Case and Mendel found an imperfect home in the right location: overlooking the High Line, the celebrated park that occupies a former elevated railway on Manhattan’s west side. They rented, planning to move on to an apartment with a spacious terrace, their dream, once they discovered it. Then a unit came up for sale on their floor. It was vanilla, to be sure—white Sheetrock walls, bamboo-color floors, generic decor—but it had magical views and 11-foot ceilings. And it represented a new ideal for Mendel. “We travel so much,” he says. “Why not live in the ultimate hotel suite?” So they snapped it up and enlisted David Mann, the president of MR Architecture + Decor and the designer behind Mendel’s boutiques, to create some drama and give the place a minimalist luxe the equal of any five-star retreat.

EXCERPT:

Krakoff’s office is just as much a cabinet of curiosities as it is a stylish work space. Part of artist Allan McCollum’s 384 Plaster Surrogates, a cluster of models of black monochrome paintings, fills the wall behind the desk. Designers Elizabeth Garouste and Mattia Bonetti’s reflective Ring table, made of stainless steel and glass, anchors a sitting area with Laarman’s Bone Rocker, which, though almost delicate and lacy in form, was cast in black marble resin following an algorithm originally developed for the auto industry. “I don’t in any way ‘decorate’—it’s just a mix of things I’m interested in,” says Krakoff. “It’s about creating a dynamic between things you wouldn’t usually put together. They interact, and each one changes the space a little.” And as with a clothing collection, it’s hard to go wrong with a foundation of basic neutrals, in this case minimalist, raw-edged chairs, sofas, and console tables that he and his Paris-born decorator wife, Delphine, designed for Reed Krakoff stores in the brand’s signature gray felt—a nod to the work of German post-war artist Joseph Beuys.

After 25 years of keen acquisition, Krakoff has amassed an enviable range of pieces that he and Delphine rotate between his office, his eponymous boutiques in New York, Las Vegas, and Tokyo, and the couple’s homes in Manhattan, Palm Beach, and East Hampton. “To me, collecting is not just about acquiring, but also about getting to know things better by living with them,” he says, adding that every purchase is agreed upon with Delphine. “We would never buy something because it’s an investment or a good price,” he says. “Either we like it or we don’t.”

VOGUE STUDIO TOUR | MARCHESA

Category: Fashion, Spaces

In the Marchesa studio in Chelsea, cofounders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s dresses take action. No bridal sample Chapman brings out is described as just “white” or “pretty”; in the designer’s words, they are falling, blooming, and growing. And they look like it. Gold-dipped feather trim waves as Chapman walks by (“Every day is a feather day!” she says), and bunches of tulle would explode off the dress form if it weren’t for well-placed pins. The showroom is like an enchanted forest, with lace ivy and sequined blooms everywhere you look.

Chapman’s office is less lush and more practical, however; her desk is a hand-me-down from her husband, Harvey Weinstein, and the only “natural” ambience comes from the spectacular sunlight that filters through the wall-length window. Among giant mood boards covered in photos of fresh flowers with neon pistils and sunny petals, Chapman’s black leather leggings and spiked Louboutins are a breath of city air. “I don’t have a green thumb at all!” Chapman admits, but her creative process is definitely organic. When it comes to design, her philosophy is simple: “When something speaks to you, you know.”

VOGUE STUDIO TOUR | RAG & BONE

Category: Fashion, Spaces

Upon entering Rag & Bone’s bustling, industrial-style studio in the Meatpacking District, you almost expect someone to toss a rugby ball or break out a vintage Ping-Pong table. The staff pads around in jeans of as many colors as in the jar of Jolly Ranchers on the showroom table.

Designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville moved into this space five years ago, bringing their matching black-lacquered desks from their first studio on West Fortieth Street with them (the two have shared an office since 2006). Memorabilia lives everywhere: a basketball signed by Carmelo Anthony during last year’s Fashion’s Night Out, a letter Ralph Lauren wrote to the team when they won the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2010, and a small canvas tote bag that Wainwright made in 2002. (“That was probably the last thing I sewed,” he says.) On top of a shelf sits a New York license plate that reads RAGBONE, a birthday gift from Wainwright to Neville, as well as a supply of liquor that would impress Don Draper. “The guys we work with in the Garment District always give us whiskey for Christmas!” Neville says.

Samples are made on the first floor of their space in the design studio, where boards of soft denim, intricate crochet, and colorful zippers are lined up next to shoe samples and a rack of pieces from Resort 2013. The only relics hinting at the building’s past are the meat hooks on the ceilings—now used to drape curtains.
