From Abbé Pierre to Zidane, French history abounds with artists and intellectuals, music and screen legends, literature, inventions, and, above all, chic. French Style exports the country’s best—innovations from universal human rights to the bikini, archetypal fictional characters from The Little Prince to Amélie, scientific and literary luminaries from the Enlightenment to Existentialism, gastronomic delights and nouvelle vague cinema.
With rich and dynamic photographs juxtaposing concepts from haute couture and scientific advancements to pop stars and popular culture, French Style is as sophisticated and chic as the nation it celebrates. This lavishly illustrated, fun and informal yet surprisingly informative compendium brings to life the savoir faire and joie de vivre that is French Style.

The illustrated market has become integral to the worlds of luxury, fashion and design. Assouline has actively contributed to this growth by creating the highest quality book-objects whose distinctive graphic identity and editorial savoir-faire have captured imaginations, addressing new themes in a contemporary manner. The brand, with its style and vision, is a true pioneer. Beginning in the mid-90s, Assouline brought the illustrated book market to life with products that were modern, luxurious and creative. Today, the luxury book market has become an indispensable tool for luxury brands. Because of decreased visibility in print publications whose distribution has dramatically plummeted and the rise of digital media and “influencers,” luxury brands need a “tangible” product to define their DNA and position themselves in the marketplace. This presents an opportunity for brands to describe their heritage, define their style and bring their creations to life for their international clientele as well as the business world.
