NEW YORK — Matthew Williamson’s new 2,600-square-foot flagship at 415 West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District here could make a person forget the world is in the grips of a recession.
The Prussian blue-hued VIP room with its light box installation comprised of fuchsia, royal blue, turquoise and white fluorescent bulbs coursing behind a glass frame, recalls a high-end disco circa 1980. “It’s a moment of pure indulgent extravaganza,” Williamson said. “It was inspired by a Nick Knight image.” The dressing room is lined with hand-painted de Gournay silk-backed wallpaper designed by Williamson and covered with vintage brooches.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
