Author(s): Hamish Bowles; Guido Taroni (Photographer); Allegra Caracciolo Agnelli (Contribution by); Marella Caracciolo Chia (Contribution by); Sofia Gnoli (Contribution by)

Interiors | November 2020 | New Art & Design

Through his long and crowded life, the polyglot designer Federico Forquet has been by turns a couturier who learned his craft at Cristóbal Balenciaga's side and whose creations for his eponymous house exemplified the Rome of the Dolce Vita era and clothed the best-dressed women of the day; a decorator of interiors of singular atmosphere, style, and charm; a discriminating collector of rare and beautiful objects, furnishings, and pictures; and a creator of magical gardens. For the first time, the many worlds of this creative visionary are brought together in a richly illustrated celebration of style. Edited by author and Vogue's Editor at Large, Hamish Bowles, this sumptuous volume takes readers through Forquet's dazzling world: from imagery of his lavish, haute couture gowns featured in Vogue, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar and worn by stylish icons like Sophia Loren, Diana Vreeland, and Marella Agnelli to picturesque scenes of verdant Tuscan gardens, and opulent, old-world Roman villas and palazzos, decorated by Forquet. Every page captures his true artistry and appreciation for the exquisite things in life. Accompanied by insightful texts from the design world's authoritative voices including Debra Needleman, Umberto Pasti, Marella Caracciolo Chia, and Sofia Gnoli, this inspiring and utterly enchanting tome will appeal to readers fascinated by fashion, style, gardens, interior design, and Italian interiors.
