{at home with: alexander wang}

Flipping through a past issue of domino and happily came across Alexander Wang's NYC apartment {above, styled by Lili Diallo} and remembered completely falling for its perfect mix of rock + refined -- a Terry Richardson photo hangs above the bed and beside a fantastically pretty flea market dresser about which Wang has said, "People are so self- conscious and afraid of things that might make them look cheesy. The coolest people are the ones who aren't afraid to look like dorks."

above + below: images of the bedroom from decorator and friend Ryan Korban's porfolio


above: amazing leather handbag {definitely on the fall shopping list} and shoes with see-through heels from the fall 2009 collection + a sexy, body-conscious dress from the resort 2010 collection

above: home office with perfectly arranged and framed portraits of models styled as oil-field workers, drifters and miners

above + below: bright and spacious new office space photographed by Todd Selby



above: a perfect mix of rock + refined

above: among the coffee table books is the work of iconoclastic photographer Helmut Newton

above: an all-time favourite
from the resort 2010 collection -- assymetrical + blue sequins

Black/ivory/metal is such a great palate cleanser...with a touch of vintage and fur thrown in for softness. Love all the photos...
