Assouline est arrivé!
08 . 02 . 08
The only thing that makes up for the fact that it doesn’t seem like Ladurée is moving into the refurbished Plaza is that Assouline has and is already open! It’s a small space on the mezzanine but it’s packed with the beautiful books that we’ve come to expect from the the fashionable firm. Other offerings include vintage books, candles, prints and luxury editions. Oh, and I’ll let you in on a little secret…they currently have in stock, Axel Vervoordt: The Story of a Style, which is a very rare find!
Just make sure you don’t try to visit them on Sunday. They are only open Monday through Saturday until 6:00pm or give them a call, (212) 593-7236. I’m sure they’d be happy to send you something. Bon shopping!
I really enjoyed ur blog thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures of the best designs i ever seen 🙂
damn, the axel book is already out of stock. lucky find. good book, though, as are the old catalogues if you ever come across them (mine are from 2000)
Assouline is always chic. I’ve enjoyed reading about the publishers as much as I have their publications. Lucky you to have the boutique nearby.
How did the Plaza hold up? I’m afraid to ask….
