Alexander Wang: Inside The Designer's Apartment (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Former New York Times Style editor Holly Brubach took a look inside designer Alexander Wang's TriBeCa loft, incidentally where she used to live, for W magazine's May issue.

The oft-referenced residence reportedly has a price tag of $2 million and it took eight months for 26-year-old Wang to properly redecorate upon Brubach's departure. Brubach describes her return to the pad:

"Welcome to your apartment!" Wang greeted me, as if I were just returning from a long vacation and he had redecorated in my absence. In fact, I had sold him my loft eight months before. Standing in the place where my pantry used to be, I took in the scene: white walls, black velvet couch, black Karl Springer coffee table, black crocodile dining chairs, black Serge Mouille floor lamps, a pair of chairs covered in black goat fur, zebra rugs, a black fox throw. An entire black menagerie seemed to have given their lives for the privilege of a place in the home of New York's hottest downtown fashion designer. "Well," Wang corrected himself, "my apartment."

And Wang discussed what he wanted from his new home:

"Having lived in New York, where you're always out and your friends are always out because no one has enough space to entertain, I imagined an apartment where I could have my friends over and on the weekend not have to leave because I feel claustrophobic. Where I would learn how to cook or do crafts projects."
