Once we had finished checking in at the front desk of designer Silvia Tcherassi’s condo, we turned around to take in our surroundings—the interior looked like the inside of a yacht. As her private elevator doors slid open, we stepped inside to find ourselves “underwater”; makeshift portholes on the ceiling and floor played videos of swimming fish, and speakers blared sounds of bubbling water instead of elevator music.
Tcherassi’s velvet wallpapered front hallway and bright, open-concept apartment were just as impressive—although far from the nautical theme of the rest of the building. Fun fact: The fashion designer lends her interior design talents to two of her very own namesake hotels in Colombia. But let us regress to Tcherassi’s dreamy apartment. Almost every single wall was home to art (we’ll get into detail on that later), floor-to-ceiling bookshelves showcased an array of fashion, art, and design books, and strewn across the table were the designer’s favorite possessions: everything from Balenciaga shoes to a Margiela jacket, a Tom Ford clutch, No.21 pants, and, of course, a handful of pieces from her namesake line.
Her sartorial excitement peaked as she showed off a few pieces from her new collection. A one-shoulder velvet bodysuit hung perfectly from a hanger, and a velvet-and-silk jumpsuit seemed to scream “holiday party!” See for yourself by clicking through the below. Plus, shop her closet here.
