About the Book



Like its predecessors, "Once Upon a Time" and "A Place in the Sun," this collection offers images of jetsetters and the wealthy, beautiful people living the glamorous life. Yet this new catalogue of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected has a new twist.



Book Synopsis



From the Caribbean to Italy and Mexico to Monaco, the photographs featured in the extravagant Poolside with Slim Aarons whisks the reader away to an exclusive club where taste, style, luxury, and grandeur prevail.

Introduction by William Norwich, fashion and interior design editor, Phaidon Press

Like its predecessors, Once Upon a Time and A Place in the Sun, Poolside with Slim Aarons offers images of jet-setters and the wealthy, of beautiful, glittering people living the glamorous life. Yet this new collection of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected "doing attractive things" in their favorite playgrounds has a new twist.

The main character is pools, and everything that goes with them--magnificent, suntanned bodies; well-oiled skin; bikini-clad women; yachts; summer cocktails; sumptuous buffets; spectacular locations; and most of all: fun. Poolside is not so much a Who's Who of society, aristocracy, and celebrity--although C. Z. Guest, Lilly Pulitzer, Cheryl Tiegs, Peter Beard, and many who have appeared in the previous books are here--as it is about leisure time and how the rich make use of it. This is a more intimate peek into very private lives, to which photographer Slim Aarons was given unprecedented access in the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties.
