Our new Fashion Issue gives DECO an excuse to delve a little deeper into the world of fashion and find inspiring cross-sections between catwalk and couch, including the envy-inducing loft apartment style of photographer Mark Borthwick and fashion designer Maria Cornejo.
Should you wonder where one of the coolest couples in New York City live, pick up our Fashion Issue and become as enamoured as we were with the loft apartment style of this creative couple. Mark Borthwick shoots large-scale fashion campaigns such as Missoni and Margiela, while Maria Cornejo is the designer behind the Zero + Maria Cornejo label (worn by the likes of Michelle Obama and Tilda Swinton). Their lovely, authentic home is their ‘sanctuary’ and a world away from any facade of glitz and glamour.
Like generations of New Yorkers we came to the city to make a new life.
It feels like it might be somewhere offbeat, upstate and rural, but we now have Norah Jones as a next door neighbour.
This house is our sanctuary. It’s where I find clarity for my work.
When we lived in Paris, I always missed London, but when we moved to Brooklyn I didn’t miss it anymore. We might still feel like foreigners in New York, but we’re home.
