Customer Reviews:
Highly recommended book for coffee table or reference! Kagan's New York Collection is stunning, but the Classic pieces are simply awe inspiring. Vladimir Kagan should be respected not only for his legendary furniture designs, but for his extremely kind and grounded personality. To know such a person is a rare occurance. Buy his book, buy his furniture.

Book Description:
(Introduction: Tom Ford)
When a premiere magazine runs a story about a high-profile celebrity, there is only one photographer they call: Nigel Parry. His brilliant lens has captured the most powerful politicos, the most famous celebrities, and the most beautiful beautiful people of our day. His in-your-face style and exacting precision yields portraits like one has never seen.

The first section of this unique book is written by David Hicks' son, Ashley. Ashley gives a personal biographical account of the development of his father's work; descibing his influences, how he got started, his first commission, trials and tribulations in America, the peak of his career, success and finally the later stages of his life. Ashley describes for us his family homes, which his father decorated, mixing antique and modern with a command of style and colour that was made hugely influential by the publication of his nine books on interiors. These have become style bibles for many of today's designers, both young and old, including Gucci's Tom Ford. The second section of the book uses over 200 original colour photographs to illustrate the full range of the designer's vision and talent. These stylish images show a design oeuvre that ranged from apartments for Helena Rubenstein and the Prince of Wales, through yachts and private jets to the surprisingly glamorous offices of British Steel in New York. In addition, the book features his sculptures, drawings, sketches, furniture and fabric designs, photography and famous geometric carpets. David Hicks: Designer is a fitting tribute to a glittering career and a uniquely charismatic man.
