From the iconic Parisian couple that is Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, to the mysterious Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe, author Angella Nazarian offers an insightful journey into the most intimate moments in the relationships of legendary painters, filmmakers, philosophers, and even the Queen in her book, Creative Couples.
Diving into the stories of 15 couples who motivate one another, work together, and change lives as a team, Nazarian explores the various forms a couple can take and how differently they can operate, from living on separate continents to being artistic collaborators.
Each text takes into account the history of both halves of the pair, how they impact each other’s work, and what makes them stronger together.
As the book traverses historical milestones and cultural change, be it in France, Chile, or Japan, it consistently returns to the importance of strong duos and how two people and their individual talents merging can be incredibly powerful. Nazarian tells timeless tales with impeccable attention to detail and manages to weave singular lifestyles with the thread of the inimitable bond between two human beings.
