Valentin Yudashkin, the fashion designer who lent his spin on Russian military uniforms in 2008 – and was kicked out of Paris Fashion Week after failing to speak out against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine – is under contract to sell his penthouse on the Upper East Side.
His last asking price was $8.17 million, down from his ticket price of $8.37 million in 2021.
Yudashkin, who has been battling cancer since 2016, posted her new collection on YouTube instead.
His work appeared in the pages of Elle and Vogue, and more locally at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – and he was the only Russian banned from attending Fashion Week.
“Our team wanted to verify the position of Valentin Yudashkin,” Ralph Toledano, president of the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion, told Women’s Wear Daily. “If he had had doubts about the war in Ukraine, it would have been difficult to remove him from the program. This was not the case.”
Yudashkin’s place is inside the Curzon House, a boutique condo consisting of two turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts-era townhouses at 4 E. 62nd St.
Yudashkin bought the penthouse in 2008 for $5.7 million, property records show.
The piece de resistance is a 2,000 square foot rooftop terrace with views of Central Park.
The two-bedroom condo measures 2,500 square feet and is completely remodeled.
The house opens onto a private elevator landing which leads to a large living and dining room, as well as a stylish kitchen.
The sky-lit master bedroom and adjoining marble bathroom, plus a second bedroom, are at the end of a gallery hall at the rear of the apartment.
The rooftop lounge also has an enclosed veranda and a dumbwaiter.
Building amenities include a concierge, resident manager and porter.
The listing broker is Gennady Perepada of One and Only Realty.
