Ever wonder where some of your favorite designers rest their heads at night? In September, Assouline and the CFDA will give you an intimate look at the homes of some of today’s most important American designers with the publication of a 115-page coffee table book: American Fashion Designers At Home.
“This is the ultimate voyeuristic journey,” author Rima Suqi told WWD. “If you are a New Yorker, and like me, are always looking into people’s windows if the lights are on, this will feel very similar, except that they are all the homes of fashion designers.”
Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren: for $65 you can see where these geniuses and others sleep, shower, sketch, relax — you name it. Although some of the photographs may look familiar (many have been previously published), the anecdotes throughout the book keep it intriguing.
So if you caught a glimpse of Jenna Lyons’ brownstone in that episode of Oprah a while back and have been dying to see more (we have!) — or you just want to see if a designer’s aesthetic translates from the runway to the bedroom — you’re probably as excited as we are for this book.
