Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, Peopleby Hamish Bowles
Synopses & Reviews
This unique book of thirty-six spectacular houses and gardens—whose owners come from the worlds of fashion, music, art, and society—draws not only on stories that have appeared in the pages of Vogue and Vogue Living over the past two decades but also on images that have never before been published. Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People takes you to these style-makers private realms around the world, captured by such celebrated photographers as Miles Aldridge, Cecil Beaton, Jonathan Becker, Eric Boman, Oberto Gili, François Halard, Horst P. Horst, Annie Leibovitz, Sheila Metzner, Mario Testino, Tim Walker, and Bruce Weber, among many others. Their dazzling photographs bring to life interiors and exteriors, modern and classical, that are both inspiring and transporting. Writers like Hamish Bowles, Joan Juliet Buck, Dodie Kazanjian, Eve MacSweeney, Julia Reed, Marina Rust, and Vicki Woods take us behind the scenes to give us an intimate view of the owners and how they live.
Here are Madonnas romantic rural retreat in the depths of the English countryside and the Oscar de la Rentas coral-stone Palladian mansion on the coast of the Dominican Republic; Michael and Eva Chows epic Los Angeles manse and shoe maestro Christian Louboutins magical houseboat on the Nile; Donna Karans Zenlike Manhattan aerie and legendary tastemaker Marella Agnellis enchanted villa and gardens in the Palmeraie of Marrakesh; Julian and Olatz Schnabels operatic downtown loft and childrenswear designer Rachel Rileys miniature château on the Loire; celebrated landscape gardener Fernando Carunchos innovative Spanish gardens and Houghton, David Cholmondeleys magnificent English stately home; Janet de Bottons idyllic Provençal estate; and four decades of Karl Lagerfelds endlessly surprising houses, both innovative and palatial.
Lavishly illustrated in full color, Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People is an irresistible voyage through some of the worlds most beautiful and private gardens and interiors.
Lavishly illustrated with 400 color photographs, this book profiles 36 spectacular houses and gardens--whose owners come from many different creative worlds--as they appeared in the pages of "Vogue" over the last two decades.
