Assouline: French Style

"Fashion has to due with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
- Gabrielle Chanel

From Abbé Pierre and Brigitte Bardot to Yves Saint Laurent and Zidane, French history abounds with artists and intellectuals, music and screen legends, thinkers and inventors, et bien sûr, chic. French Style exports the country’s best—innovations from universal human rights to the bikini, philosophical and literary luminaries from the Enlightenment to Existentialism, gastronomic delights and Nouvelle Vague cinema. With dynamic photographs juxtaposing concepts from haute couture and scientific advancements to pop stars and popular culture, French Style is as sophisticated as the nation it celebrates. This lavishly illustrated, fun and informal yet surprisingly informative compendium brings to life the savoir faire and joie de vivre that is French Style.

Arethusa Farm: The Dairy Built in Stiletto Shoes

"Much Like in the Fashion World, There's a Great Deal of Jealousy and Rivalry in Dairy Farming"

George Malkemus, the CEO of Monolo Blahnik, gave that quote to The Wall Street Journal, which just published an expose of one the greatest secrets of the fashion world: Malkemus and the other top-ranking executive at Monolo Blahnik, vice-president Tony Yurgaitis, run a diary farm. Called Arethusa, it produces milk that's allegedly finer and certainly costlier than most. Its 23 retail accounts include Whole Foods, where you can buy a half-gallon for $4.49 - or more than twice the national retail average. 

What you're paying for, as with Manolo Blahnik shoe, is quality. This isn't fast milk produced without thought or imagination by ripping off another dairy farmer's design - this milk comes from well-bred, very well-cared cows that are treated like ladies.

Arethusa cultivates an aura of haute-living heifers. A sign above abode reads: "Every cow in this barn is a lady, please treat her as such."

They munch on the finest, protein-enriched hay and rest upon soft wood shavings from Canada. Workers vacuum their bodies on a daily basis in a spa-like room. ("There's not a single fly" on any cow, boasts Mr. Malkemus.)

To plump up their coats and tails, cows are treated with some of the same beauty products used by ladies who lunch. Brands like Artec shampoo are slathered on dark-haired cows, while Pantene is a preferred for the blonder bovines.

One dairy farmer sneers that, while his barns may not be like the Ritz, Arethusa's milk isn't even organic since the cows get antibiotics when they're sick. So he passes Arethusa's milk off as "conventional". Fine. We all know there's nothing conventional about a cow that pays more attention to its choice of shampoo in relation to its hair color that the average human.

Where the Fashionistas Sleep

Coco Chanel said, "fashion is in the sky and in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." Today, she could add "in a hotel room" to that list, as the fashion world turns into exacting eye to hotel design. Jetsetter has selected five high-style properties from some of the fashion's greatest tastemakers, including Moschino's surrealist gem in Milan, a 15th-century Verona villa transformed by Byblo's founder and Sra. Rosita Missoni's colorful city hotel in Edinburgh. Or, if you have designs on a beach escape, hang up your heels and head to Oscar de la Renta's Dominican Republic resort or Ralph Lauren's Jamaican escape. Whatever you taste, these designers destinations promise style in spades.Modern
