In The Selby Is in Your Place, Selby showcases some of his favorite visits in a raucously artistic collection sure to inspire oohs and ahhs and more than a little house envy.
Synopses & Reviews
Some of the most important people in fashionand#8212;Chanel, Alaand#239;a, Yves Saint Laurent, Pucci, Kenzo, and Missoniand#8212;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 dand#233;cor, works of art, and the personal collections of these legendary designers. Some interiors, such as Chaneland#8217;s apartment at 31 rue Cambon, are mythic, while others like those of Giorgio Armaniand#8217;s chand#226;let or Vanessa Seward, Azzaroand#8217;s head designer, are completely unconventional. From minimal (Nicole Farhi) to exotic (Franca Sozanni), to a deceptively simple Frenchand#160;apartment (Loulou de La Falaise), this book explores the spaces and places created by some of fashionand#8217;s biggest names."Photographer Ivan Terestchenko is known for his work photographing the homes of some of fashion's most notable names. Their iconic designs are well known, but what kind of style do they have behind closed doors? Take a peek into some seriously fashionable houses." -MarthaStewart.com

"Manolo Blahnik's house is like a pair of his shoes: elegant, well-proportioned and far more comfortable than it might appear. And it is appearances that are often at stake in Mr. Terestchenko's 19 beautiful photo essays on the homes of designers as varied as Azzedine Alaia, Vittorio Missoni, and Reed Krakoff." - Wall Street Journal
"Terestchenko opens doors to the homes of an extended collection of notable names in fashion....Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home invites readers into the private homes of these very public tastemakers and a lustrous list of equally-inspiring courteriers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities." -Veranda
"Terestchenko draws parallels between the aesthetics of renowned fashion companies and their creators' interior stylings. The visual study is more than just a discussion about decor." -Lonny
"Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home by Ivan Terestchenko may just be the most beautiful book of the past few years." -From the Right Bank to the Left Coast
"People love to see the homes of fashion designers. In Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home...Ivan Terestchenko takes readers into the private spaces of the late designers Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, as well as Azzedine Alaia and Vaness Seward, to name just a few." -Habitually Chic
"A fascinating look into the private residences of some of fashion's most influential designers, tastemakers, and stylists from photographer Ivan Terestchenko. This volume of eye candy spans both the globe and a wide array of dand#233;cor styles, highlighting the diversity of the residents and their corresponding brands." --Domainehome.com
The next installment in the bestselling and#147;Selbyand#8221; series, Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of todayand#8217;s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Chapters on individual artists bring readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes, and include Selbyand#8217;s signature photographs and watercolors of not only the artists and their environments, but also the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces. From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashionand#8217;s biggest names, rising stars, and best-kept secrets.
The Selby Is in Your Place was conceived when fashion and interiors photographer Todd Selby began taking portraits of dynamic and creative people—authors, musicians, artists, and designers—in their home environments and posting them on his web site. Nosy by nature, he wanted to see how personal style was reflected in private spaces. Lucky for us, he found his answer in the color-rich and eclectic quarters of a diverse group of subjects, including Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, Faris Rotter, Andre Walker, and Olivier Zahm, in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, and London. Each profile is accompanied by Selbys watercolor portraits of the subjects and objects from their homes, and illustrated questionnaires, which Selby asks each sitter to fill out. This book consists of over thirty profiles, many of which have never-before-seen, selected exclusively for the book. The result is a collection of unique spaces bursting with energy and personality that together create a colorful hodgepodge of inspirational interiors.
