Inside Jason Wu’s Midcentury-Modern-Inspired Home

His apartment is so flawless it inspired his fragrance.

Alec Kugler
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. In fact, Wu, whose background is in product design, enlisted his interior designer, Andre Mellone, to conceptualize the bottle—a project unlike anything else 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.

“I worked with Andre Mellone on my apartment, and I also worked with him to design my store at Saks. We’ve been working together for a few years and became good friends. He’s just someone with really good taste, and he has such an eye for furniture and objects, we just speak the same language when it comes to visuals. [When it came to the bottle design] I was like, ‘Do you want to take a crack at doing this? I don’t want to go the traditional route.’ I wanted someone with a point of view that wasn’t from the perfume world.”
