Set aside those think-pieces on how 24-hour access to Lego creates the happiest nation on earth and start learning why the Nordic nations are just as messed up as we are. Unless you've had your head buried in Stieg Larsson books or have been trapped in the bedroom department of Ikea for the last couple of years, you will have noticed that all things Scandinavian are getting a lot of love right now. Sure, the residents of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden may enjoy excellent public services, top most World Happiness Reports and possess chiselled cheek bones that would make even Mick Jagger look twice, but have you seen the price of a beer out there, or tried to stomach a slice of brunost cheese, or ever attempted shopping on a Saturday afternoon when EVERYTHING is shut? And don't get us started on the weather: seemingly endless freezing winter days where the sun never rises and there's only the Ingmar Bergman back catalogue to entertain you-it's bleak! Suffice to say, being Scandinavian isn't all it's cracked up to be, so ignore the newspaper articles exalting the latest subtitled crime drama. Turn your back on the online features promoting a hygge lifestyle - this fire-brigade-taunting combination of strong schnapps, cosy blankets and candlelight will only end in tears. Give up your hopes of securing a table at whatever the latest Michelin-starred restaurant is that serves live ants and reindeer moss ice cream. Instead, put down that Ace of Bass album and pick up this guide to discovering why adopting the Scandi lifestyle won't make you a better person.
Why are Scandinavians constantly topping the happiness table? How do you get more Scandi-style in your life? Just how do you use lagom? Whether you want your apartment to look like it belongs in Copenhagen, to workout like a Norwegian or to make cinnamon buns like a Swede, this is the ultimate insider's guide to the countries of the north. Full of inspiration and ideas, how-tos and recipes to help you experience the very best of Scandinavian design, philosophy, cookery and culture, this honest behind-the-scenes look at the culture provides an invaluable insight into the wonderful and visually stunning world of Scandinavia. Like her viking ancestors before her, Bronte Aurell left Denmark to explore the world beyond home shores and in her travels has come to understand the fascination with her kinfolk, as well as seeing the idiosyncrasies of the Scandinavian lifestyle that locals take for granted. With a signature wit and a keen eye for detail, she takes you on a journey through fjords and mountains, farmlands and cities to better understand these three nations and what makes each one so unique. So get outdoors, learn the life lesson that there's no such thing as bad weather (only bad clothing) and you may discover your inner Scandi sooner than you think.

A selectively curated overview of the little black dress in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, organized by Vogue contributing editor and fashion force Andre Leon Talley and published on the occasion of an exhibition at the SCAD Museum of Art (Savannah College of Art and Design), Andre Leon Talley Gallery. Featuring an impeccably selected group of about sixty dresses from many of the most eminent fashion houses, the book is a celebratory tribute to the iconic little black dress and its deeply resonant cultural and social significance in the modern era. Defined by the simplest parameters--color and shape--yet voluminous in possibility, the little black dress is personalized by the designer who imagined it and the woman who wears it. In one silhouette it can capture a woman's allure, and in one evening worn provide her with a reservoir of memories. It can sum up in one wardrobe reconnaissance the way you wore the way you were. A little black dress in any other color could dent a reputation; in black it can only elevate one. Whether made from the most superior fabrics, or designed in cutting-edge neoprene, the little black dress maintains its status as the game-changer, the free spirit and pleasure-seeker (Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy in Breakfast at Tiffany's), the career-launcher (Elizabeth Hurley in Versace), the going-for-broke risk-taker (Virginie Gautreau as Madame X), inevitably revealing truths about the women who have chosen to wear one. Three original essays offer personal histories in praise of the little black dress. An introduction by Andre Leon Talley and a foreword by Paula Wallace complete this exquisite volume. Together with a stunning collection of images, this book presents a singularly elegant portfolio.
