On January 21, 1971, couturier Yves Saint Laurent presented his Spring-Summer haute couture collection. Inspired by the garments of the war years, the collection included short dresses, platform shoes, square shoulders, and exaggerated makeup. The show caused an outrage among the public, the critics, and the press alike, earning it the title of “Paris’s ugliest collection.” Nevertheless, the haute couture designs of the runway made their way to the boulevards, giving full sway to the “retro” trend that quickly conquered the streets. Yves Saint Laurent: The Scandal Collection, 1971 offers a behind-the-scenes look at the influential collection that “drew fire in the fashion world”—from the collection’s inspiration to the press coverage that followed. Beautifully illustrated and documented with well-researched essays, this book is enriched with personal interviews and archival photographs of the show, the models, the designs, and the textile and print samples, as well as sketches and international press clippings.

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Picture a late-May morning in 1918, a time when Montgomery wore her prettiest spring dress and finest floral perfume - same as I would wear that evening . . . Thus begins the story of beautiful, reckless, seventeen-year-old Zelda Sayre on the day she meets Lieutenant Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald at a country club dance. Fitzgerald isn't rich or settled; no one knows his people; and he wants, of all things, to be a writer in New York. No matter how wildly in love they may be, Zelda's father firmly opposes the match. But when Scott finally sells his first novel, This Side of Paradise, Zelda defies her parents to board a train to New York and marry him in the vestry of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Life is a sudden whirl of glamour and excitement: Everyone wants to meet the dashing young author of the scandalous novel - and his beautiful, perhaps even more scandalous wife. Zelda bobs her hair, trades in her provincial finery for daring dresses and plunges into the endless party that welcomes the darlings of the literary world to New York, then Paris and the French Riviera. It is the Jazz Age, when everything seems new and possible - except that dazzling success does not always last. Surrounded by a thrilling array of magnificent hosts and mercurial geniuses - including Sara and Gerald Murphy, Gertrude Stein, and the great and terrible Ernest Hemingway - Zelda and Scott find the future both grander and stranger than they could have ever imagined.

Sorority , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 507min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Prep meets Girls in White Dresses in Genevieve Sly Crane's deliciously addictive, compulsively listenable exploration of female friendship and coming of age that will appeal to anyone who has ever been curious about what goes on in a sorority house....  Margot is dead.  There's a rumor she died because she couldn't take the pressure of being a pledge. You may not ask what happened to her. It's not your business. But it wasn't a suicide, if you're wondering.  Spring Fling will not be cancelled. The deposit is nonrefundable. And Margot would have wanted the sisterhood to continue in her absence, if only to protect her sisters' secrets: Shannon is the thinnest girl in the house (the other sisters hate her for it, but they know her sacrifice: She only uses the bathroom by the laundry room); Kyra has slept with 29 boys since she started college (they are all different and all the same); Amanda is a virgin (her mincing gait and sloping posture give it away); and while half the sisters are too new to have known Margot, Deirdre remembers her - she always remembers.  With a keen sense of character and unflinching, observant prose, Crane exposes the undercurrents of tension in a world where perfection comes at a cost and the best things in life are painful - if not impossible - to acquire: Beauty. A mother's love. And friendship...or at least the appearance of it.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Davies. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/008264/bk_sans_008264_sample.mp3.

Grandpa Rules: Notes on Grandfatherhood, the Wo...
9,95 € *

This series of reflections on the role of a grandfather will be an inspiration and a pleasure to all grandparents. Fourteen years ago, Mike Milligan learned he would become a grandfather for the first time. He was surprised to find that there was little or no information available on what it means to be a grandfather, how to make the most of the experience, and how to be the best grandfather possible. Sure, there were shelves of books dedicated to grandmothers - all with cuddly covers depicting spring bouquets or gentle little lambs. But there was not a single book that spoke to him, a 64-year-old grandfather-to-be. It struck him that there were countless other grandfathers out there experiencing this same feeling of neglect. With over a decade of grandparenting under his belt, Milligan is thrilled to offer his Grandpa Rules. Over the years, Milligan has discovered some universal rules that apply to grandfathers everywhere. For example, the "let it slide" rule has taught him to take it in stride when he hears one of his grandchildren say, "Grandpa sure dresses funny." Imbued with Milligan's humor, honed during his career in comedy writing for television (The Jeffersons, All in the Family, etc.), Grandpa Rules will entertain and delight millions of grandfathers, as well as those who will soon earn the exalted title of "Grandpa". It's the perfect gift for a special grandfather, for Father's Day, a birthday, the birth of a grandchild, or just for a grandpa to read and enjoy during one of his many bathroom visits. 1.
