Iconoclastic designer Betsey Johnson has found a buyer for her Upper East Side condo at 30 East 85th Street. The zany fashionista with a passion for pink purchased the 850-square-foot pad at the top of the market in 2008 for $1.85 million and listed it for $2.25 million in May. With no takers, the price was chopped to $1.8M in October, and the home recently went into contract according to the New York Observer.
Fashionistas got an unusual treat this past weekend when Betsey Johnson held a giant yard sale at her East Hampton home. The Post noted that the punk-rock-meets-bubblegum-pink fashion designer was unloading around 10,000 items from her personal collection, “including her own designs, one of a kind runway pieces and vintage couture.” The sale coincides with Johnson listing her home at 25 Grape Arbor Lane for $1,995,000. And while the clothes outside may be wild and crazy, the designer’s cottage-like residence is much more subdued, save for the girly, flowery wallpaper, vintage accents, and glitzy chandeliers.
