Forty-two-year-old Luca Orlandi, the celebrity-friendly founder of Luca Luca, will have a nice new nest to feather now that his fall line has finished exhibiting at Fashion Week.
According to city records, the designer has bought a duplex penthouse co-op at the Gramercy House at 22nd Street and Second Avenue for $3.345 million.
In August 2005, Mr. Orlandi married the Nigerian-born supermodel Oluchi Onweagba; recently, his firm moved its offices from above the store to an office building closer to Bryant Park.
