A while back I noticed that ASSOULINE had opened up a small shop here, Bebek to be precise. 2 weeks ago I went there with my lover and I was blown away by the beauty and visual quality of all their books, the shop itself is just as beautiful. It made me want to sit in there the whole day! my favourites were the Chanel limited edition leather-bound box set, the Windows at Bergdorg Goodman and the Proust Questionnaire book, to name a few.
They would all look perfect on my coffee table! Unfortunately I have to be realistic, therefore the lover and I have decided to buy 1 book every 2 months..lets see if we manage to keep it up!
Check them out at http://www.shopassouline.com and if you live in Istanbul then you MUST visit the shop.
