Imagine having an apartment so spacious, you could host a runway show in it. That's what designer John Bartlett's doing in his West Village duplex on the morning of September 4th. "The space is as aesthetically pleasing as his men's wear; it was designed by Bartlett's partner, interior designer John Esty. 'In today's day when everything is so overhyped and overproduced, it's better to keep things smaller and personal where you can see the clothes,' said Bartlett. 'With men's wear, everyone knows each other and it can be kind of like a party.'" That actually sounds really fun. [FWD]
