As the first day of New York Fashion Week officially kicks off, Luxury Listings NYC too makes its fashion debut.
The fall issue of Luxury Listings NYC, which is now live on the web, offers a peek inside the homes of two high-profile players with two very different roles at this year’s fashion week.
First, LLNYC opens the doors to the sprawling Manhattan home of longtime fashion designer Nicole Miller, who tomorrow will be debuting her new spring line at Skylight Clarkson Sq in Soho. Miller, who splits time between her Tribeca co-op and her Sag Harbor home because she doesn’t “really like the mainstream people,” does all of her own decorating (which is perhaps the reason why she has more art than available wall space.)
Next, we travel a short distance to the Tribeca loft of Jennifer Blumin, Skylight Group founder and the “urban Indiana Jones” largely responsible for moving Fashion Week from beneath the tents at Lincoln Center to its new venues. The 2,000-square foot home Blumin shares with her two kids as well her partner, architect James Ramsey, is filled with exotic artifacts, like Mesoamerican ceramics, a 16th-century wooden horse from India and vintage guitars.
Also in this month’s magazine, LLNYC ganders northward to the ritzy enclave of Westchester County, where luxury home prices top those of other nearby suburbs. We explore the county’s most expensive listings, and some of the area’s more well-heeled homes.
Keep an eye out for LLNYC‘s ranking of the priciest schools in the city, a look at why buyers sometimes bid on apartments they don’t really want and, of course, so much more. Enjoy the issue! — Kerry Barger
