{at home with: alexander wang}

Flipping through a past issue of domino and happily came across Alexander Wang‘s NYC apartment {above, styled by Lili Diallo} and remembered completely falling for its perfect mix of rock + refined — a Terry Richardson photo hangs above the bed and beside a fantastically pretty flea market dresser about which Wang has said, “People are so self- conscious and afraid of things that might make them look cheesy. The coolest people are the ones who aren’t afraid to look like dorks.”
