BEYOND CHIC. Great Fashion Designers at Home

di Ivan Terestchenko

Some of the most important people in fashion—Chanel, Alaïa, 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 décor, 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 apartment (Loulou de La Falaise), this book explores the spaces and places created by some of fashion’s biggest names.

> Of Ukrainian origin, Ivan Terestchenko was born in England and educated in France. He studied art history at the École du Louvre and was a painter until the age of thirty, when he switched to photography and landed his first assignment with French Vogue. He soon gained international recognition documenting the private homes of high-profile fashion and interior designers for magazines worldwide, including W, The World of Interiors, Elle Decor, Casa Vogue Italy, Departures, Wall Street Journal, and Architectural Digest. An avid surfer, he lives in southwestern France near Biarritz.
