Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing Designs Flashy Interiors for Model Residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards

DOWNING BY THE RIVER: For those who have wondered what it’s like to live like Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing, wait no longer.
Through a Related Cos.-Neiman Marcus effort, Downing has designed and styled the interior of a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards. Downing’s 1,464-square-foot model residence has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a price tag of nearly $ 4.3 million. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, Fifteen Hudson Yards has 285 condos varying in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms.
As a veteran member of the four-fashion-week pack (and the air miles to prove it), Downing gleaned inspiration from the world’s fashion capitals for his at-home curation. His fondness for art collecting was another factor in the final edit. There is also an abundance of color throughout the apartment including pink walls and ceiling, a Venetian-style glass chandelier in purple, a multicolored geometric style rug and a vibrant column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green in the master suite, not to mention the turquoise floor-to-ceiling interior in the condo’s library. Reflective surfaces are meant to bring the West Side view indoors.

Hemant and Nandita to Retail in Neiman Marcus

EXPANDING STATESIDE: Indian designer duo Hemant and Nandita have hit what they call “a benchmark”: being picked up by Neiman Marcus. Their collection will be carried in 20 Neiman’s stores this month, as well as on the retailer’s Web site. “We see it as a big opportunity,” said Hemant Lalwani, adding that it would also open the window for other Indian designers and help build their “label into a brand.”
He said the retailer will carry 1,200 pieces of the resort collection, ranging from tunics to short dresses and maxis and retailing for $ 220 to $ 430.
“The resort line gives us a huge scope for design,” said Nandita Raipurani, who oversees design for the brand, which was launched in 2009. The label, which often uses silks and had a recent collection with Neoprene with Indian prints, has worked with light cotton and embroidery for the resort collection, along with silk.
The brand, which has been sold in the U.S. at retailers such as Anthropologie for the last five years, also launched on Amazon in the U.S. in July with  loungewear, including embellished sweatshirts, shorts and sweatpants, at prices ranging from $ 207 to $ 357.
