Gifts for no particular reason are the absolute best! Yesterday, the bf surprised me with a beautiful collection of books from luxury bookstore, Assouline. It was the sweetest gesture to represent the re-launch of my website and included my most favorite topics: food, fashion and travel.
With its origins in publishing, visiting an Assouline boutique is more like walking into a museum of culture and art than a bookstore. From rare and classic titles, unique sculptures and vintage bookends to the elegant gift wrapping with Assouline's signature red wax seal...no detail is left untouched.
After all, if you're going to buy a book...why not make it an experience. No one says it better than Assouline themselves, "we favor things that are rare and precious not for their price, but because they enrich our lives."
I can't wait to dive into the pristine pages of my new Assouline books and with shops in New York, Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Paris, Istanbul, Lima, Seoul as well as many shop-in-shops and worldwide delivery...I'm sure you won't be too far behind.
