وصف كتب مصر
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 Madonna’s romantic rural retreat in the depths of the English
countryside and the Oscar de la Renta’s coral-stone Palladian mansion on the
coast of the Dominican Republic; Michael and Eva Chow’s epic Los Angeles manse
and shoe maestro Christian Louboutin’s magical houseboat on the Nile; Donna
Karan’s Zenlike Manhattan aerie and legendary tastemaker Marella Agnelli’s
enchanted villa and gardens in the Palmeraie of Marrakesh; Julian and Olatz
Schnabel’s operatic downtown loft and childrenswear designer Rachel Riley’s
miniature château on the Loire; celebrated landscape gardener Fernando
Caruncho’s innovative Spanish gardens and Houghton, David Cholmondeley’s
magnificent English stately home; Janet de Botton’s idyllic Provençal estate;
and four decades of Karl Lagerfeld’s 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 world’s most beautiful and private
gardens and interiors.
