A Feel For Fashion: Alexandre Assouline
A Frenchman in New York to vaguely quote Sting's famous song. Alex Assouline was born in Paris but he moved to the Big Apple in 2007 where he learned everything about digital marketing at Columbia Business School. In 2016 he joined the family company and has been Chief of Operations, Brand & Strategy since 2021. Twenty years ago, his parents, Prosper and Martine Assouline, founded their namesake publishing House in Paris, bridging luxury and culture, and their catalogue of titles reflects their always impeccable, sometimes playful taste. Assouline books signal a unique aesthetic, much like the venerable fashion Houses. In this week of Haute Couture, Assouline’s ongoing fashion collaborations with Maisons such as Chanel and Dior have resulted in beautiful and timeless times, while Azzedine Alaïa, a great friend of the family, is the godfather of Alex.
