Books: {Beyond Chic} Ivan Terestchenko


Ever wish you could peek inside

the homes of legendary fashion designers

to see where they dream?

Stefano Pilati’s gym…could you die?

What objects do they collect?

Which artists do they love?

How do they decorate?

Ivan Terestchenko shares images

shot over the years of

homes belonging to high-profile

designers in:

Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home

(Vendome Press, 2013)

I knew Terestchenko’s photography would be brilliant,

but oh my, Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home offers more breathtaking

moments than I expected.

Ivan Terestchenko’s Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home

A few reasons Terestchenko’s new book delivers:

1. The pads of Calvin Klein’s Kevin Carrigan and Saint Laurent’s Stefano Pilati!

2. Very few words to read…a boon for us lazy visual types.

3. Getting lost in lush pages feels like a vacay escape

yet involves no baggage checking.

4. The ‘unexpected’ is gorgeously captured.

5. It truly spotlights the beyond chic.

This is a beautiful book!

Peace to you right where you are.

    Ha! Michele, I voted for #41 not even knowing that it was your photo! I can't think of a better place to spend a crisp autumn afternoon than a bench in the Jardin du Luxembourg, so of course it said fabulous fall to me! Wish we were there now sharing a box of macarons! This book looks fabulous (that pink ticking sofa!), would love to add it to my out-of-control stacks! Have a lovely weekend, XO
