Yves Lavallette & Antoinette Desjardins
With concept stores thriving in many European capitales and in the USA, Yves
Lavallette and Antoinette Desjardins propose through ASIAN, a moment of "trendy"Asian life mixing delicacy and originality through certain aspects of
the fashion, decoration, beauty or culture which stood them out.
At the bend in a street of Paris, a journey in Asia: in China, in Tibet, in Vietnam... the
authors present photographs taken at the chances of a meeting, some shots of
unusual object, photographs of sumptuous Lu Yan...
All these moments lived
and retranscribed by the image evoke the modernism, the purity, refinement,
and, sometimes the avant-garde of a marked Asian culture also in France.
ASIAN is a true testimony of the idea that a journey can start right from
Paris, and is, above all, the suggestion of a certain atmosphere...
personal original approach, the book appears to be a singular and poetic "tendency notebook" which invites the reader to get lost in a delicious
crossing between Asia and France.
