The visions that designers send down the runway each season may be ephemeral, but the ones they create in their own homes (and, you know, yachts) are, on the other hand, more permanent. Check out the pads that reflect fashion's top brass' exacting tastes. You wish you lived here.
Raf Simons' Antwerp Home Key selling points: A description of a room in Dior creative director (and head of his own namesake menswear brand) Raf Simons' home reads like a who's who in the art world, with works by Mike Kelley, Brian Calvin, Mark Leckey, Evan Holloway, and even the odd Picasso piece. There are also pieces from Los Angeles-based Ruby Sterling, whom Simons has collaborated with on the past two seasons for his eponymous line. Listing: via The Wall Street Journal
Giorgio Armani's Saint Tropez-docked Yacht Key selling points: We can't imagine boat decor chicer than Armani's teak-and-titanium pairing, with seaworthy extras like bed-linens in nautical stripes and a crew in (of course!) custom Armani uniforms. Listing: via Architectural Digest
Tom Ford's Santa Fe Ranch Key selling points: For a man who's helmed not one but two legendary fashion houses, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, before starting an empire under his own name, a Tadao Ando-designed ranch in the southwest is as rough as it gets. Listing: via GQ Australia
Thom Browne's Manhattan Apartment Key selling points: The creator of his visionary eponymous line enlisted architectural designer David Biscaye to create a mid-century modern haven complete with chic bar carts, '60s Jaques Adnet furniture, vintage Steubben and Baccarat glassware, and '50s nightstands by Gio Ponti.

Ralph Lauren's Manhattan Duplex Key selling points: Ralph Lauren livened up his spacious Fifth Avenue duplex's stately entrance hall, polished cherry floors, and simple white walls with extras like an original Star Wars storm trooper figurine, a Batman painting, quirky vintage extras, and plenty of Ralph Lauren home pieces, of course.
