Thoroughly Modern Milly
It almost seems like a bigger more grown up version of the apartment of Jessie Randall and Brian Murphy of Loeffler Randall. Michelle describes the mood as young and sexy, “like moving into Grandma’s apartment and making it modern and whimsical, but still classic.” She also said she knew it was the perfect apartment when she realized the Christian Louboutin shop was just across the street. Spoken like a true fashionista!
The vintage chairs above are upholstered in a yellow and white zebra-stripe silk by Jim Thompson and flank the marble fireplace topped with a 1940’s mirror.
The common thread in the apartment is the “unexpected flourish or sparkle.” It’s something that can be said of her clothing designs as well. So many Milly designs are classic but with a twist, like shiny gold buttons or a fun bold print. I think it’s so fun to see how fashion designers translate their design sense at home and it’s clear that her experience working at such venerable houses such as Hermes, Dior and Louis Vuitton have made their mark as well. In fact, I think I might like her apartment more than I like her dresses now!
