Fashion As The Art Of Being
Frida Kahlo was not only an iconic artist, she was also a bold beauty and an avant-garde fashionista whose timeless sense of style continues to inspire and influence the worlds of fashion, media, and art today. Fashion is an optical effect that Frida employed with shrewd artistic intention. Frida knew that life is theater, and fashion was her costume. Frida understood the importance of image and attitude, no matter who you are. The canvas was Frida’s mirror, and she was the painter, the model, and the painting—author, subject, medium, and object. Frida was her own best work of art.
Chanel 3-Book Slipcase
Chanel Fashion, Jewelry and Perfume
Self-inventor extraordinaire, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel revolutionized the lifestyle of her time by inventing a modern concept of luxury. She set her stamp on the 20th century, promoting a new feminine silhouette both sophisticated and discreet. This modern attitude of understated luxe thrives today thanks to the creative talents of Karl Lagerfeld, artistic director since 1983, who has reinvigorated the house by reinventing its famous signatures season after season. Assouline’s completely updated trilogy unfolds the spirit and heritage of the house of Chanel, from Coco’s revolutionary designs to Karl Lagerfeld’s present innovations. This elegant slipcase set includes three Mémoire volumes celebrating Mademoiselle’s revolutionary style: Chanel Fashion, Chanel Jewelry, Chanel Perfume
Dinner with Georgia O’Keefe
Recipes, Art & Landscape
Georgia O’Keeffe chose New Mexico as the vibrant backdrop for the second half of her boundlessly creative life. She purchased homes in Ghost Ranch and Abiquiú, handcrafting and refinishing them with special emphasis on the kitchen and garden spaces that would prove to be fundamental to her artistic process. She reveled in being able to forage and gather the natural bounty of her environment. For Georgia, food was elevated to an art form, not only in her works but in its preparation and consumption, in its purposes of carrying on beloved heritage and guarding against sickness.
The Light of Paris
Photographer: Jean-Michel Berts
As King Francois I once said, “Paris is not a city, it’s a world.” Long after the swarming crowd has deserted it, after the hum and buzz of traffic has subsided, Paris still resonates with a discreet life of its own. Working before sunrise and after sundown, photographer Jean-Michel Berts has created these dream-like black-and-white images, including Montmartre and the banks of the Seine. Following the Grands Boulevards and the footprints of Baudelaire, Brassa•, and Huysmans, the deserted streets of Paris take on a poetic, ethereal quality. Featuring beautiful text by the French novelist Pierre Assouline, this book is a moving homage to the city of lights.
