Jenna Lyons. Chris Benz. Michael Bastian. Jonathan Adler. Lorin Stein. The workspaces of today's creative elite are revealed in Habitually Chic!
Habitually Chic is author Heather Clawson's wildly popular blog about the finer things in life—high fashion, fine art, interior design, and arresting architecture. For Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work, Ms. Clawson has narrowed her vision and using the good will generated by her blog has found her way into the workspaces of the world's foremost cultural generators. The studios, workshops, offices, and creative sanctuaries of top designers, artists, editors, architects, and more are captured and presented in detail.
Those featured include Jenna Lyons and Frank Muytjens of J.Crew; fashion designers Peter Som, Chris Benz, and Michael Bastian; jewelry designer James de Givenchy of TAFFIN; landscape designer Miranda Brooks; artist Jeremiah Goodman; John Truex and Richard Lambertson of Tiffany & Co.; antiques dealer Joel Chen; interior designer Bunny Williams; potter and designer extraordinaire Jonathan Adler, and many more. It is a chic mix of uptown, downtown, young, old, established, and up-and-coming creative elites.
The never-before-seen images taken by Ms. Clawson will be complimented by the inspiring stories of these talented individuals. Those featured delve into how they got where they are and what keeps them going as they navigate each day at their dream job. Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work is an indispensible and intimate approach to deciphering what it takes to dictate the style that propels the world.
Heather Clawson grew up visiting museums, playing with Barbie's Dream House, and watching Style with Elsa Klensch. It's no wonder that she majored in art history, moved to New York, and became an interior designer who's obsessed with fashion. Since its inception in 2007, Heather and Habitually Chic have been featured in Elle Décor, House Beautiful, Domino, Lonny, Fast Company, and Amica magazines. She has also been profiled on HarpersBazaar.com, 1stdibs, Barneys The Window, Tory Burch Blog, The Huffington Post, and many more sites.
