In 1947, the Black Star Agency sent him to the United States to photograph machines but he preferred fashion and decided to start a new life in Los Angeles. Max Corre, with whom he had with collaborated at France Dimanche, called him to announce that Jean Prouvost was creating a magazine in Paris, which lead to him returning and meeting Hervé Mille.

In 1968, he married Elsa Martinelli and lived in Rome where Willy began designing objects for his personal needs. According to him, Scandinavian furniture was neither comfortable nor simple.
