I grew up on a healthy TV diet of "Dynasty," so it's no surprise that Gianni and Marella Agnelli loomed iconic in my childhood references. He, the chic Italian titan of industry, and she — one of the most glamorous women in the world. When I moved to Italy in my 20s to work at Benetton, I started to hear more about their homes and style. That's why MARELLA AGNELLI: THE LAST SWAN is such a style bible. Agnelli collaborated with the best artists and designers of her day, using her many residences as her palette and medium. From Italian interior design legend Renzo Mongiardino, who worked on her New York apartment alongside a young Peter Marino, to Gae Aulenti, the important Italian architect, who built her homes in Turin and Marrakech, Agnelli created a series of extraordinary houses and gardens, full of timeless elegance, invaluable art, and groundbreaking decorating ideas. Here she's photographed in 1967 by Horst in her main salon with a sofa designed by Stephane Boudin and panels of antique Chinese wallpaper.
