Coco Rocha and James Conran dream of moving to Brooklyn
By Bennet Marcus
James Conran said his fashion education began out of necessity soon after he met his model wife of five months, Coco Rocha. “I had to have a crash course in fashion. About two years ago I didn’t know anything, but then I was like, I better get to know what this girl’s doing for work,” Conran said at last night’s WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala. By this point, Rocha thinks her husband knows more about fashion than she does, but she still has more clothes, and she hogs all the closet space in the house. “She has her closet and my closet,” Conran said; in fact, the flannel shirt Rocha wore to the party is her husband’s. “I couldn’t even find my own clothes; I was like, give me your clothes,” she said.
Meanwhile, the couple is hoping for more closet space soon: “We want a house with a garden,” Conran said. “We’re talking about Brooklyn Heights or something.” If they lived there, he went on dreamily, they’d only come into Manhattan for work. “You’d never see us again,” Rocha added. There’s one problem, though: “No one wants to buy our apartment,” she sighed. (The apartment was recently featured in Vogue.)
