We're Over the Moon about Miles Redd...

... and "The Big Book of Chic"

We adore this book and have been waiting for it … well, forever. Exuberant, clever design sensation Miles Redd whizzes us away with The Big Book of Chic (Assouline, $75) to ‘20s Paris, witty salons, inky-blue libraries and curious follies. Oversized, lush and filled with his very quirky, cozy glamour, this book shoots shards of cherry red, French blue, cerulean and Venetian pink into NY high-rises and country Georgians, rich with important details such as nickel-plated nail studs, coral door pulls and exuberant trims. Shades of Cecil Beaton, Diana Vreeland and Grès! Plug in Cole Porter, pour a Scotch and fly away. Signed copies are available through curatebooks@papercitymag.com.
