A full-scale retrospective of Oscar de la Renta’s work, this magnificent volume features the designs that defined the fashion icon’s long career. In this fabulous book, readers will be immersed in the designs that made Oscar de la Renta one of fashion’s most influential designers, who dressed celebrities, American First Ladies, and socialites from around the world. Thematic sections will trace de la Renta’s journey, from his upbringing in the Dominican Republic; the rise of his career in Spain, where he gained his first commissions; his formative years spent in the world’s preeminent fashion houses; and the eventual creation of the company that bears his name. Luxurious color illustrations include images from his historic 1973 fashion show at Versailles, his designs worn from the red carpet to the White House by glamor icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Taylor Swift, along with state dinner–worthy creations made exclusively for Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. In addition, historic images from de la Renta’s archives illuminate both the breadth and depth of the designer’s work. André Leon Talley’s heartfelt introduction looks back on a long and treasured friendship, and the authors examine the designer’s artistry and technique, as well as the historical and cultural influences that fostered his visionary work in this elaborate tribute to a singular individual.

The new trend is green: matcha is top-quality green tea that is ground into a find powder. Originally used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha is now inventively used in other dishes as well. And now we are going to make this neon-green ingredient our very own: with its tart-sweet taste, Matcha gives ice cream or smoothies its own special kick. Other than the color, what is so special about this powder? The entire tea leaf is ground to make matcha powder, which means all of the beneficial ingredients in green tea--like anti-oxidants and phytochemicals-are preserved. It is a great reason to take a closer look at this green trend!

Creamy puddings are back on the table! Have you ever tasted a real homemade custard pudding? And no, we don’t mean the one that comes from a packet, but a beautiful, trembling cream dessert made the old fashioned way with eggs, sugar, milk and cream. In Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings you will find recipes for both classic puddings such as vanilla, almond, chocolate and wonderful contemporary versions such as salted caramel pudding with caramel popcorn and white chocolate pudding with jasmine tea. And much, much more. Sounds difficult? It is not. A real pudding just requires a little time at the stove and some hours in the refrigerator. And the reward – a quivering cream artwork that makes children quiver and adults sigh.

Private paradises nestled in the backyards of homes. Rooftops that act as community gardens. Edible patches of beauty hidden within city blocks. Evergreen shows the verdant aesthetic statement that allows city dwellers to bring nature back into the every day and quenches urban gardening desires. Living with plants is mutually beneficial; beyond the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, leaves, flowers, and stems bring a warm and individual charisma to any space. Throughout this engaging collection of projects, urban gardening is complimented by a softer side: balconies that add an extra relaxing touch to a morning cup of coffee, flowers that provide calming fragrances throughout the home, or romantic blooms that feed the soul rather than fill a plate. Evergreen also inspires those who already live in the midst of lush horticultural and sustainable oases. Straightforward plans and examples illustrate how to transform unused spaces, both indoors and out, into flourishing and functional patches. Sketched floorplans visually detail a myriad of projects including which plants thrive in dark living room corners or which foliage enjoys the damp environment of a bathroom. The profiles of both professional and hobbyist plant lovers provide an engaging guide to productively getting one’s hands dirty; herb gardens on fire escapes, greenhouses that double as living spaces, and community gardens atop roofs all awaken growing curiosities. From cactus farmers and florists to shop owners and activists, let Evergreen’s cast of characters guide you in making and maintaining a green utopia and in quenching gardening longings.

The following pages show a wide variety of sustainable and ecological resources: from recouping traditional architectural solutions like cross-ventilation and taking advantage of natural light to new insulation and self-supplying energy systems.
