Marie-Hélène de Taillac: the book

In 1996, Marie-Hélène de Taillac invented a style, with her colored stones, Jaipur-based production in India and a gold that was almost pure, unlike the kind used in the West. Now her first book provides a taste of her world, with iconic photos of her designs and texts by Nathalie Rykiel, Inès de la Fressange and Jean-Philippe Delhomme.
