Last we heard Zac Posen was drawing inspiration from lesbian proms, so we’ve got to admit we’re curious about what “thing that is actually happening,” is behind his latest endeavor. And now our inner voyeur is eating up a peek at Posen’s interior turn, a definite hold-over from times when bold-faced names added up to smart investments. (You know, back before Zac was caught wheeling a red cart around Tar-jay.)
Of course, now that the economy is inching its way back, it seems an apt time to unveil the Posen-decorated, super-luxe Flatiron digs in all of their over-the-top glory, complete with floor length curtains, floor to ceiling mirrors, a fur-encrusted trunk and wallpaper that might make you sick if you stare at it for too long. Well, Zac has always been nothing if not dramatic.
Anyway, according to the real-estate versed over at Curbed, the model apartment is available furnished — except for the nudie artwork from Posen’s personal collection — and prices on all the units range from $1.8 million to $6 million each. Yowsers! And to answer your question, yes, there are still people that have that kind of money.
In fact, reps for the exclusive address claim, there are about 500 of ’em currently vying for a private showing before the units hit the open market. Can’t say it’s exactly our taste, but if lacquered furniture and purple sleigh beds are you thing, we vote go for it! It will pay for itself in conversation starters — though you’ll have to throw in a few extra bucks for the floor length gown.
