The 32-year-old fashion designer has reportedly put his luxurious pad on Worth Street, Manhattan, as he has decided to up sticks and relocate to West Chelsea, according to The New York Post.

It had been reported Alexander bought the 2,550 square foot, one bedroom, third floor loft, in 2010 for $2 million.

The abode boasts a large dressing room, as well as two bathrooms, with pre-war decor including restored tin ceilings, exposed white brick walls, and ebony stained hardwood floors.

The home also has oversized windows that look out across the American neighbourhood, a chef's kitchen, as well as a large living room, dining and entertainment space.

Meanwhile the creative mastermind - who was the former creative director of the fashion house Balenciaga - has revealed he decided to embark on a career in the fashion industry, which saw him move to New York aged 19 to attend Parsons School of Design, because he didn't like sport.

Speaking previously about his career, he said: "There's no, like, my mum was a seamstress, or anything like that.

"I never really played sports after school like the other kids did. So instead I discovered fashion and magazines, and I kind of filtered everything through that. Even then, I knew fashion wasn't just about designers. I loved Japanese street style magazines, and I was a big fanatic over models. I can still remember how excited I was when MTV did a show, 'A Day in The Life of Gisele', or something."

Despite his collections frequently containing vast amounts of sportswear including mesh T-shirts and tracksuit bottoms, Alexander's shunning of sport continues, as has confessed he never goes to the gym.

He said: "A lot of people find that surprising, but to me the point is that sportswear has a functionality to it. It's what you see people wearing in the street, carrying in their bags. It has a very direct connection to our lives and that's what I love about it - it's not so much about being sporty as about being active and functional and easy."
