20 great agriturismos and farm stays in Europe: readers’ tips

The agriturismo movement started in Italy but readers have had breaks on working farms from France to Iceland and Croatia to CreteThis country is dotted with amazing organic farm stays but we love Pri Plajerju in the Trenta valley. There’s something pure and timeless about Slovenia and this farm. It has self-catering apartments, but we sleep in the hayloft – it’s incredibly good value. The hay beds are warm and cosy and it’s magical after a day walking the Soča trail. The mountain scenery is min...

Fantasy Epics Are YA’s Next Big Trend — Here’s Where To Get Started

Fantasy books have always been popular in YA and children's literature — long before Harry Potter. But lately, the genre has given authors the opportunity to create rich worlds that draw from culturally specific mythologies or historical periods. In two 2019 books, for example, authors dive back into 18th and 19th century Paris and supernatural twists.In a way, YA fantasy offers a chance to rewrite history, in addition to letting imaginations soar. Through the lens of these YA fantasy books, hi...

Seaside sisters: Tranquil towns snuggle on the Franco-Spanish border

Along the western Mediterranean coast, two easygoing — and easy-to-enjoy — beach towns stand like sister cities on each side of the border between France and Spain. Both Collioure, in France, and Cadaqués, in Spain, are off the grid when it comes to glitzy resorts.

The Importance of Environment

I have decided that I do not like exercising in the gym in our building in Las Vegas anymore. The facility itself is very nice and new, and it has excellent equipment. It is also very clean and well maintained; in fact, it is one of the nicest gyms I have ever seen. The window views of the stratosphere outside are also pretty cool. However, it is what is going on inside the gym that bothers me. Almost every time I have been to the gym I have seen men running with their shirts off on the treadmil...

Improve When Others Are Not

-->One of the more interesting experiences of my life occurred when I was about 13-years old and I was on an airplane headed to Spain to study for the summer with a group of high school students. The airplane had literally been held up about 20 minutes because of me. I was so much younger than the other travelers that no one was too interested in spending much time with me. Consequently, I had mostly been left to my own devices up to that point in the trip. We were traveling from Detroit to New ...

Sculptural Heels Are The Work-Of-Art Shoe Trend You Need For Spring

Nine times out of ten, if you start seeing a certain accessory over and over, it's probably a Jacquemus original. Just look at what happened with his ubiquitous mini bags. The French designer, whose loyal followers include Jeanne Damas, Marta Cygan and Caroline de Maigret, has a knack for knowing exactly what we want before we even want it. And from where I'm sitting (at my desk scrolling through Instagram), it looks like the man from the south of France has done it again — this time, in the sh...

You Always Need a Backup Plan

--> Being in the asphalt business in Detroit taught me very early on that things frequently go wrong. In fact, things go wrong so frequently, it is difficult to believe: Pumps break. Tanks break. Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and mater...

Grand Palais in Paris transformed into a winter wonderland for late designer’s last catwalk collectionAt Paris fashion week, there was only one show in town. Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection, designed shortly before his death last month, was both Chanel catwalk show and a moment at which the fashion world said goodbye to the designer.

Sarah Burton repays Alexander McQueen’s faith in classic style

Deeply personal Paris fashion week show highlights brand’s support for designerLee Alexander McQueen died in 2010, but not before he had predicted the trajectory of fashion this decade with extraordinary accuracy. He believed fiercely in fashion as armour for women, had an unsettling instinct to needle into the dark heart of sexual politics, and an impulse to celebrate female strength. It is uncanny, in hindsight, to note the extent to which McQueen predicted a reckoning in gender politics that ...

Eau de Givenchy: With Spring At Heart

  “Never refuse unexpected offers," as Boconon says: "Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God,” do you remember the sentence from Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle?

31 Looks We're Trying This March

Normally, we'd bet our favorite pair of mules that March weather will be all parts winter. But considering how absurdly warm (not that we're complaining) temperatures have been lately, we're hoping that Punxsutawney Phil was right in predicting an early spring.Will we miss our giant puffers and extra warm blanket scarves? Absolutely. But would we trade them in for shoes that don't cover our toes, and approximately three fewer layers than January and February tend to require? In a heartbeat. Tha...

What Does Rihanna’s Fashion Line Have To Do With Her Loud Album?

Last month, news broke that Queen Rihanna would be releasing something a little bigger than Fenty-branded sunglasses. The mogul is working with French luxury conglomerate LVMH to launch a house under her name. It would be the first time LVMH has debuted a new label since Christian Lacroix in 1987. No word on an official launch date, but thanks to Business of Fashion, we do know how the brand is referred to internally.“Now it appears that the venture — dubbed 'Project Loud France,' a nod to Rih...

What Ivanka Trump Was Really Like In High School
