It’s no secret Coco Rocha is a force to be reckoned with in the modeling world — especially when it comes to her many poses — but did you know the self-proclaimed “tech geek” is also gifted when it comes to interior design?

For its December issue, InStyle stepped inside the home Rocha shares with husband James Conran and their 8-month-old daughter, Ioni. Nestled in White Plains, New York, the quaint cottage “looked like Ireland, not Westchester,” the model tells the magazine.

While the couple overhauled the three-bedroom, stone home’s kitchen and bathrooms, its overall vibe saw the most transformation with the addition of bright color palettes, which replaced the abode’s dark interior.

“James actually helped with the design of my very first New York apartment, when I was 18,” Rocha said. “We were just friends at that point, but designing together is what brought us closer.”

Something else that impacted their design taste? Parenthood. Once Ioni entered the picture, Rocha and Conran decided to introduce more whimsicality and “to be more fun, less stoic.”

Ioni’s nursery is filled with artwork by Downtown and Donald Robertson, among others, and much like the rest of the home, is made up of unique pieces —most notably, a lacquered-maple crib purchased from a furniture-maker in Aspen. “It’s hard to find one that’s interesting-looking and not dated,” says Conran.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
