At the Emperor’s Table is an exclusive invitation into the refined world of Valentino Garavani. This gorgeous book features his remarkable collections of table settings and objets d’art in his five homes in Gstaad, London, Rome, New York, and Paris, and on his yacht (publisher: Assouline; photographs by Oberto Gili).
Also featured are recipes by Mr. Garavani’s personal chefs.
Beauty and entertaining have long been passions of Valentino. “I am in love with beauty,” he admits in the book’s opening. “I have always loved beautiful objects.”
Friend and fashion editor, André Leon Talley writes in the introduction, “Valentino Garavani designs his luncheons and dinners, in all of his homes, the way he has created crescendos and allegros vivace throughout his forty-plus-year career as one of the greatest haute couture designers and high-fashion leaders in the world.”
The emperor not only of fashion but also of l’art de vivre, Valentino Garavani’s excellence is most known for the warmth and joy he creates for others.
