Blasblog From Paris: Cool Book From Cold Country-------
Assouline hosted a party for its latest coffee-table tome, Russian Style, at its Saint-Germain store in Paris last night, which drew the likes of Dasha Zhukova, Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Olympia Scarry. Beyond pics of a few military jackets and posses of girls in head-to-toe Balmain, which are two dominant influences over there (trust me!), the book is a more complete look at the many ways the country has inspired fashion. Think Fabergé, Erté, et al. “It’s more a full panorama of styles and techniques, and how Russian style has evolved from the ages,” explained its author, Russian L’Officiel‘s editor in chief, Evelina Khromchenko. Fun fact: The editrix is the voice of Meryl Streep’s Miranda Priestly in the Russian version of The Devil Wears Prada.
