Coveteur, the fashion and lifestyle web site founded by Stephanie Mark and Jake Rosenberg in 2011, is entering the print game with a new hardcover photography book.
Launching today on amazon.com and coveteur.com, “The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style” examines the closets and lifestyles of 43 celebrities, influencers, editors and designers, including Christian Louboutin, Olivier Rousteing, Cindy Crawford, Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba.
“Since day one, people always said what we were doing online would be perfect for a book,” said Mark. “Once we felt like the brand was in a strong place and we could dedicate time to a project as big as this one, there was no question that we wanted to do it.”
Of the closets featured, about half were shot by Rosenberg exclusively for the book, with the remaining narrowed down from those existing online. “The tricky part was organizing and scheduling the shoots all over the world,” said Rosenberg. “When it came to choosing people from the site, we tried to narrow it down to the people that we felt were a well-rounded representation of the types of profiles and personalities that are most true to Coveteur.”
Mark picked up a few tips and tricks in her five-plus years of shooting fabulous homes. “All Coveteurs have lots of candles — Diptyque and Le Labo are favorites — [in addition to] little knick-knacks with personal stories behind them,” she said. “And the number-one way to make your closet look outstanding is to have the same hangers throughout.”
The coffee table book, priced at $35, will be celebrated tonight with a private event at Bergdorf Goodman.
