This collection of conversations on the subject of time between a legendary couturier and leaders in the worlds of art, design, and popular culture will inspire readers to take greater control over their life and develop their creativity. One of the characteristics of modern-day life seems to be that we are doing more and more at an ever-increasing rate. Uncompromising couturier Azzedine Alaïa hosted salon-style discussions between creative luminaries on this subject. The result is a collection of never-before-published conversations between some of the most famous minds of our generation about time–an increasingly valuable commodity in twenty-first-century society. Taking Time presents musings from some of the world’s most respected figures in cinema, music, and design: Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson discuss time as the first ergonomic product; Julian Schnabel and Jean-Claude Carrière consider it in respect to art and film; and Robert Wilson and Isabelle Huppert speak about the importance of time in theater and acting. You will discover ways of appreciating and managing time that are helpful and will embolden you to manifest your creativity and enjoy life to the fullest…and truly to take your time.
