Valentino… Table settings and object d'art

One of the joys of editing and working in magazines is reviewing new books.
 Every so often a book arrives that is simply breathtaking. 


This gorgeous new book, published by Assouline, arriving in a couple of weeks (28th October) is an invitation into the refined world and graceful living of Valentino Gavavani.  The remarkable collection of table settings and objets d’art housed in his five residences, in Gstaad, London, Rome, New York, and Paris, as well as on his yacht, evoke the grandeur in which he lives and are presented in this first-ever edition with photographs by Oberto Gili and introduction by André Leon Talley Recipes by Mr. Garavani’s personal chefs are also included and bring readers one step closer to discovering his extraordinary surroundings.

All these delicious images - Oberto Gili
