Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Praise for "Beyond Chic"

"Photographer Ivan Terestchenko traveled the globe--from Ottavio Missoni's Venetian Manse to Christian Louboutin's adobe home in Luxor, Egypt--to capture the more than 200 images in this lush and inspiring bit of voyeurism." — Details

"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

Synopsis:

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.
