"Some of the most important people in fashion--Chanel, Alai;a, Yves Saint Laurent, Pucci, Kenzo, and Missoni--are known for their public image and their iconic designs. But what kind of world have they cultivated behind closed doors? From France to Italy, from England to Morocco, come along on a private visit to the remarkable homes of couturiers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities. Photographer Ivan Terestchenko shows the de;cor, works of art, and the personal collections of these legendary designers. Some interiors, such as Chanel's apartment at 31 rue Cambon, are mythic, while others like those of Giorgio Armani's châlet or Vanessa Seward, Azzaro's head designer, are completely unconventional. From minimal (Nicole Farhi) to exotic (Franca Sozanni), to a deceptively simple French farmhouse (Loulou de La Falaise), this book explores the spaces and places created by some of fashion's biggest names"-- Provided by publisher.
"Chanel, Ala̐a, Courr̈ges, Pucci, Kenzo, and Missoni ... but also Yves Saint Laurent, Manolo Blahnik, Franca Sozzani, and Christian Louboutin. From France to Italy, from the UK to Morocco, with stops in the Egyptian desert and the Aegean islands, we are invited on a private visit to the remarkable homes of couturiers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities. Far from the pressure of the catwalk and atelier, Terestchenko shows the dčor, the works of art, and the personal collections of these highly talented designers. Some interiors, such as Chanel's apartment at 31, rue Cambon, are mythic, while others like those of Victoire de Castellane, the designer of Dior's jewelry line, or Vanessa Seward, the designer of Azzaro, are completely unconventional. Minimal (Nicole Farhi), exotic (Franca Sozanni), and deceptively simple (Loulou de La Falaise) Beyond Chic is for anyone who loves fashion, interiors, and design"-- Provided by publisher.
