This isn’t just an outrageoulsy expensive home. Listed for a staggering $80 Million, Tommy Hilfiger‘s New York penthouse has something unique about it, something that really catches one’s eye: a rich and unique decor inspired by the early 1900′s glamour.
Born the second of nine children in Elmira, New York, Hilfiger’s career in fashion began as a high school student in 1969, when he opened a small chain of stores called People’s Place with just $150. His goal was to bring “cool big city styles” from New York to his friends in their small town in upstate New York. Hilfiger soon began designing for the boutiques he had always admired, and in 1979 he moved to New York City to pursue a career as a full-time fashion designer.
Hilfiger and his wife Dee Ocleppo listed the home last year for $80 million, which at the time made it one of the most expensive homes on the market in America.
This is the beauty of old world charm with a modern twist at its best. Contemporary art is every where! “I think that if you surround yourself with things you love, then it makes for a great home design”.
