Inside Jason Wu’s Midcentury-Modern-Inspired Home
His apartment is so flawless, it inspired his new fragrance.
If you expected Jason Wu—the man behind some of the most beautiful clothing being made today—to have a home that is anything less than stunning, allow us to correct that misconception. The TriBeCa space is just as pristine and elegant as his collection, even with two sweet, very fuzzy cats running around—Wu matched his grey cats to his grey furniture to keep things looking neat.
Both his home and line are heavily inspired by the ’50s, and not coincidentally, the same era influenced his fragrance, which launches tomorrow. In fact, Wu, whose background is in product design, enlisted his interior designer, Andre Mellone, to conceptualize the bottle—a project unlike any other Mellone has worked on. Sleek and modern, it fits perfectly into Wu’s personal collection of brass objects. The main thing we were struck by after visiting with Wu is how totally seamless his personal universe is, and it’s one we undoubtedly want to live in too.
If smelling like Jason Wu’s vision will help us live his vision, count us in.
