MY LONDON APARTMENT IN TELEGRAPH







High fashion meets children’s playroom in an east London warehouse, home to the stylist and creative director Nicola Formichetti.
By Francesca Gavin. Photographs by Andy Sewell 

In less than a decade, Nicola Formichetti moved from the shop floor of the boutique Pineal Eye to become one of the world’s most in-demand men’s fashion stylists. He is currently the creative director of Dazed & Confused magazine, a senior editor at its sister titles AnOther and AnOther Man and has worked with fashion brands ranging from Issey Miyake to Uniqlo. Half-Italian and half-Japanese, he divides his time between New York, Tokyo (where he has his own store, Side by Side) and his large warehouse space near Hoxton Square in London. The latter is filled with artworks collected from fashion shoots, junk-shop and retro furniture and a soft toy collection, which spills on to surfaces with plush abandon. It is a space put together by a highly creative individual – someone with the aesthetic confidence to place a Jack-in-the-box next to a Diptyque candle.

How did you first become interested in fashion?

Both my parents had a strong interest in it, especially my mum, and it just rubbed off on me. Living in both Italy and Japan as a child, I saw different ways of wearing clothes; going shopping with Mum was always exciting.

What connections are there between your work and where you live?

Living, playing and working are all so closely tied together for me that the buzz of where I live has always suited my needs. I have been living in Shoreditch for 10 years. It’s where I feel comfortable, close to the Dazed office and all the photo studios. All my friends live close by. It feels more like a community than anywhere else to me.

How long have you been in the flat?

I’ve lived here two years. My best friend used to live here. It was just a natural progression that when he moved out, I’d move in.

How did your toy collection begin?

I’ve been collecting since I was a child. It’s Japanese culture. I don’t have any specific toys that I like more than others, but I seem to have a lot of freaky-looking stuffed monsters.

Pedal extenders are an ingenious UGG Nightfall addition to the piano. At first sight, they look like a footstool and can serve the purpose of giving a child a place for the feet so they do not dangle freely, but UGG Nightfall Boots they also have piano pedals. Piano pedals sit on the top, and underneath are posts that sit on the pedals of the piano, so that when nightfall uggs the child pushed the pedal on the footstool, the piano pedals are pushed by the extenders. With an adjustable piano bench, the child can be at the ugg 5359 correct height to play the piano comfortably.As a beautiful piece of furniture a sheet music cabinet can take place with other pieces of furniture. But its real purpose is to keep the many pieces of music organized and out of sight. Most piano benches ugg 5359 can hold music, but this storage space is limited.
