You’ve got designer jeans, a designer bag, designer shoes, designer sunglasses–a designer condo seems like the next logical step, right? Luckily this dream can become reality if you’ve got $82,000 to spend and would like to relocate to the Philippines. That’s where a Missoni-designed condominium tower is set to open in 2015. So far 25 percent of the units are sold, and while the lobby, pool, and gym will all sport the signature Missoni stripes, apparently you’ll have to pay extra if you want them in your own condo.

Yes, that’s a shot of the late Yves Saint Laurent‘s former “country home.” But really, would you expect anything less from one of the most luxe fashion designers of all time? The mansion in Deauville, France, is dripping with extravagance, and now you can get a look inside and even own a piece of it — Christie’s is auctioning off the wares inside. Granted, you have to be pretty wealthy to take part (sigh, as always).
But the eclectic collection of furniture and decorative accents makes for entertaining viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on an elk chandelier, Grecian urns, and tons of Rococo furniture. Our favorite item, however, has to be a collection of porcelain bulldogs. So random! (Yet weirdly chic as well.) Some more pics after the jump! [Paris By Appointment Only] Keep reading »
