Architectural Digest recently paid a visit to the New York City home of Alexander Wang. Years prior, the famed designer had been all about his artsy loft, but he has since traded it all in for a more refined space located in a starchitect–designed building by the Hudson River.

“It was time for a grown-up apartment that had a view, separate rooms, and a little outdoor space—something more cozy and intimate,” Wang insists.

Upon entering his West Chelsea apartment, you’ll immediately be drawn to a number of eye-catching pieces ranging from Kate Moss portraits by Gene Lemuel to sculptural R&Y Augousti tortoiseshell chairs, handmade Eric Schmitt pendants, and a large photo of a horse’s backside by Steven Klein.

“This is my favorite piece and really gives you the first impression of the apartment and what you’re getting into.”

Much of Wang’s NYC residence is the result of work by his longtime friend and interior designer, Ryan Korban.

“It’s a real love/hate relationship, but I wouldn’t have it any other way—it’s like working with family,” the 33-year-old designer admitted when speaking on Korban, whom he has worked with multiple times in the past.

But to hear from the man himself, as well as to tour his New York City digs, press play underneath.
