“Fashion changes, but style endures.” Coco Chanel knew what she was talking about: she used the transience of fashion to her advantage, revolutionizing traditional women’s fashion styles at the dawn of the 20th century. Since then, styles have changed and evolved with every passing season. But what is style, and what kinds of style are there? These are precisely the questions we answer in For the Love of Style. We showcase the best-known and most exciting trends, from boho to preppy to the boyfriend look. Where did these trends come from, who influenced them, and who perfected them? This style guide explains all of this and more, with inspiring pictures and detailed texts by Corinna Williams and Nina Zywietz. We also tell you how to build the perfect wardrobe: For the Love of Style shows the must-have pieces, from trench coats to sailor shirts, for every body type and budget, and shares styling tips to help you get in touch with your inner fashionista.

The concept of clean eating is becoming increasingly popular among adults, however it is children who are the most vulnerable to additives and nasty toxins such as sugar, found in unhealthy, processed, and fast food. Because children are still growing and developing, it’s important they consume adequate vitamins and nutrients through their diets. Children are, after all, our future. The concept is simple: using fresh ingredients in their most natural state. We say goodbye to gluten, wheat germ, refined sugar, and genetically modified oils, as these can be addictive, acidic, deplete energy, and can cause sluggishness, mood swings, and hyperactive behaviour in children. Feeding the Future is a glossy lifestyle/cookbook filled with inspiring recipes that all children—from those aged two to grown-up “kidults”—will love. These recipes are clean, nutritious, and delicious, as well as being easy to make. The book is the perfect tool for health-conscious and time-poor parents.

Niçoise cuisine is the food of the Mediterranean. It is not only a delight to the palate, but is known to have many health benefits. Its recipes are in tune with the natural cycle of the year using in-season fruits, herbs and vegetables, as well as plenty of fish. But the majority of the recipes are merely guides – unless you are baking – offering a relaxed flexibility with ingredients and seasonings suited to cooks of all levels of experience. This, Jacques Médecin’s legendary book, first published in 1972 and now reissued for the first time in hardback offers an infectiously enthusiastic guide to the cookery of his city.
