Fashion faves Bessie Afnaim and Oliver Corral list $2.5M NYC penthouse


Looking for some Zen in the city?

While renovating their Greenwich Village duplex penthouse during the pandemic, fashion design power pair Bessie Afnaim Corral and Oliver Corral launched Arjé Home, an extension of their cult fashion line, Arjé, where celeb fans like Hailey Bieber sport their shearling jackets.

Now, the couple’s home is on the market for $2.5 million.

The duo — she’s from Turkey, he’s from Spain — made their name co-designing Donna Karan’s Urban Zen line for seven years before launching their own luxury lifestyle brand via global pop-ups.

That earthy vision of understated elegance has extended to home pieces and furniture in neutral tones and natural surfaces — from art to shearling chairs, bedding, ceramics and even curated books, and it’s all in their home, which has been featured Harper’s Bazaar and the New York Times Magazine.

The 10th-floor, one-bedroom, two-bath spread is around 1,900 square feet and comes with an outdoor terrace with views of the Empire State Building.

The listing brokers are Hayim Nommaz and Michael Johnson of Compass.
