THE MOST SOPHISTICATED BOOKS IN THE WORLD
“We created this company to be the first luxury brand on culture. We wanted to supply everything for a contemporary library; we started working with top perfumers for scented candles, with Goyard for a book trunk, with Chanel on a quilted leather slipcase, and so on. Now we are expanding the Assouline lifestyle brand in stores in the most important cities of the world.
We love and believe in books more than everything else, but we also want to extend our vision to create all that can be expected in a chic and personalized library, from beautiful books and special editions to luxury gift items, unique library accessories, and now a complete turnkey collection of stylish furniture.
Our digital world goes faster than ever and nothing remains of it, but books are the solid part of our past and present. They also are beauty. For us, books are a matter of intellect and emotion, of heritage and innovation. Because information is not only about today, and the past is a sensational source of inspiration.”
-Prosper & Martine Assouline
The best stories. A village that caresses the eye and attracted a host of artists at he turn of the twentieth century. A village whose heyday came in the middle of the 1950s, when a young Franco-Russian filmmaker brought cameras and crew to its sun dazzled beaches to make his first feature film: And God Created Woman. The shock wave created by Roger Vadim revealed a resplendent creature, a leg-end: Brigitte Bardot, rocketing to fame in the village she chose as her home, which would bask in the glory of those years forever. In its pearly haven, artists, film stars, playboys and top models would spend sun-soaked days and starry nights in affairs and adventures that have since entered the pages of history. In the Spirit of Saint-Tropez is illustrated with numerous previously unpublished photographs.
