What happens when the amazingly fabulous @kendowningofficial
, Senior Vice President and Fashion Director of @neimanmarcus
, is given the opportunity to design a unit in the new luxury residence 15 Hudson Yards in New York? Like everything his colorful hand touches, he made a point to diverge from the norm. “Model condominiums have a tendency to be sterile, they have a tendency to lack color and I wanted there to be a very eclectic, eccentric, unexpected quality when the door opened,” he explains of his two-bedroom, 1,464-square-foot creation on the 25th floor of the @diller_scofidio_renfro
building. “As opposed to something that would appeal to everyone, I wanted something that had a very singular sensibility to it that might take people beyond their comfort level with what you would expect to find in a high-rise condominium in Manhattan.” Downing outfitted the residence with furniture and pieces from the Neiman Marcus Home collection, all of which are available on an exclusive digital platform. For those who prefer to make their purchases in person, they can also head to the new Neiman Marcus store, New York’s first, when it opens at the Shops at Hudson Yards next March. To which I say: I’ll be the first in line to see. Words: @vwlawrence
