Adopted by prestige magazines from day one of his career — from Vogue, Elle, Self, Marie Claire, l’Officiel, InStyle and Madame Figaro, to New York Times Magazine, New Yorker, Town and Country, WSJ or Travel & Leisure – he has become an icon for many of his peers in the design world, as well as for his ever-growing list of fans in New York, Tokyo, Paris and more. But the only praise he is after is the smile in the eyes of the next face he will draw today.
