Hamish Bowles & Guido Taroni
The aesthetic vision of Frederico Forquet has no bounds. The Italian couturier learnt his craft with Balenciaga; his haute couture gowns worn by Sophia Lauren and Diana Vreeland. Yet, as A Life in Style reveals in gorgeous photography and fascinating essays, he also created divine interiors and magical gardens.
Curated by way of fifty items significant to the art and design of Paul Smith (including the cloth-bound cover, reminiscent of yarn wound around card), this illuminating insight reflects a unique creative mind. From the specifics of tailoring to the power of British wit and eccentricity, this is an inspirational portrait of the artist.
