In EuropeÂs most fashionable clans, commerce may be king, but family comes first. Yaffa Assouline, along with her brothers Prosper and Michel, form a well-known fashion trilogie. As a Parisian journalist, Yaffa Assouline worked for publishing giant Filipacchi on such magazines as Elle, French Playboy and Paris Match where she was introduced to fashion bringing her brothers in. On the side they started their own magazines including La Mode en Peinture and the publication for the nightclub of the time, Le Palace. Leaving Filipacchi in the 1980Âs, the trio formed their own company focusing on custom publishing for luxury hotels, champagne and fashion brands. They started by launching new concepts in journalism and publishing such as Air France Madame, the first in-flight magazine and then developed magazines for luxury brands including Chanel, the Dorchester Group, Veuve Clicquot. Thirteen years ago Prosper Assouline expanded to book publishing. Assouline books are works of art capturing culture and bringing it to life. Renowned for its highly original graphic concept, Assouline is the first luxury brand in the world to use its publications as a medium, bridging the gap between life and style.

ÂLuxuryculture is a word I've coined to respond to the diluted, mainstream definition of luxury. It's a new expression, a new definition of luxury that decodes the term by exposing the great creative dimensions behind it, and shares the experiences of those that live it daily. I chose the Internet to develop this new concept so that it could be communicated spontaneously everywhere in the world. Everyone has their own definition of luxury, but its values are universal. I believe that Workhouse Publicity shares our conviction to develop a unique, coherent voice for contemporary luxury which is why we are excited that they will be the Agency of Record for Luxuryculture.Â stated Yaffa Assouline, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief

We look forward to elevating luxuryculture beyond its online position and literally create a new category for luxury, one thatÂs a step ahead of trends, yet always sophisticated and stylish.Â stated Adam Nelson, CEO Workhouse Publicity.
