The Beauty of Experience: “At the Emperor’s Table”

At the Emperor’s Table, the last book published by Assouline for Valentino, is not just a book about beautiful mise-en-place, dream homes, or excellent food.

Valentino’s book proves to be a voyage for the sense. It showcases his personal style of living defined by proportions, emotions, and surprise, which, in Valentino’s own words, define elegance.

Each page is a treat for the eye: a collection of fine china, crystals, and unique treasures that playfully awaken the senses.

It was a pleasure to receive his book last evening at the new Valentino store on New York’s Fifth Avenue. I experienced first-hand how the finest elements of life dance in his presence: beauty, passion and the surprise of a genuine smile when he heard me whispering “Grazie Maestro”.
