Maison. Parisian Chic at Home

Серия: "-"

A duo of high-profile tastemakers invites readers inside fifteen homes that are infused with the blend of vintage-contemporary style that is the essence of Parisian chic. Style icon Ines de la Fressange and globetrotting dilettante Marin Montagut share a uniquely Parisian sensibility for interiors that combine a variety of design traditions into a harmonious living space. The authors take readers inside fifteen Parisian apartments including their own that demonstrate how to imbue a home with a sense of well-being through a mix of vintage and contemporary styles. Each owner is passionate about home decor whether in a studio, loft, or duplex and they continually evolve their interior with new treasures uncovered in flea markets, on their travels, at design fairs, or in artisanal workshops. Natural materials - wood, wicker, bamboo, cotton, and linen create warmth and personality. Vintage suitcases, vegetable crates, and jewel-toned pharmaceutical jars transform into charming storage containers. Embroidered cushions, terrariums, and fresh flowers enliven a room with pops of color. Collages, original art, or humble objects displayed in a series add a signature style to each residence. With extensive photographs, watercolor illustrations, and practical advice on the indispensable objects that incarnate each maison, this exquisite volume is rich in inspiration for creating Parisian chic at home.

Inès de la Fressange

Inès Marie Lætitia Églantine Isabelle de Seignard de la Fressange (born 11 August 1957), is a French designer of fashion and perfumes.

She was born in Gassin, Var, France. Her French father, André de Seignard de La Fressange (b. 1932) (a marquis), was a stockbroker, and her mother, Cecilia Sanchez-Cirez, was an Argentine model. She grew up in an 18th-century mill outside Paris with three brothers. Her grandmother was Madame Simone Jacquinot, heiress to the Lazard banking fortune.

In the 1980s, she modeled for fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, becoming his muse. However, in 1989, Lagerfeld and De la Fressange had an argument and parted company. Likely this argument was, at least in part, regarding her decision to lend her likeness to a bust of Marianne, the ubiquitous symbol of the French republic. Lagerfeld reputedly condemned her decision, saying Marianne was the embodiment of "everything that is boring, bourgeois, and provincial" and that he considered dressing an historic monument "vulgar."

In 1990, she married Luigi d'Urso (d. March 23, 2006), an Italian railroad executive, with whom she had two daughters.

Currently, De la Fressange does not model very often. Instead, she is a businesswoman with a chain of clothing boutiques, a designer, and a consultant for Jean-Paul Gaultier.
