The Stylish Life: Yachting
Since time immemorial, people have been taking to water in search of thrills and relaxation. Defined by glamour, sleek design, and wealth, yachting is the ultimate in dolce vita leisure-- a floating world elegantly captured within this volume's stunning photographs and informative text. A blend of craftsmanship, innovation, and fine materials, these refined vessels are as posh as they are practical. From the crowned heads of Europe and business moguls to Hollywood screen legends and socialites, readers gaze at some of the most noted names in the world as they display their nautical prowess. Dreamy locales such as Monte Carlo, Mykonos, and St. Barths provide the perfect backdrop to the lavish yachting lifestyle. As you browse the pages of this breathtaking tome, you're bound to drift away to where everyone is rich and attractive--and it's always the height of summer.
The Stylish Life: Tennis
More than "just a game," tennis has always been a sociable pursuit where whom and where you play defines the whole experience. An entire culture has developed around this chic pastime. Witness a whole pantheon of tennis legends who combine athleticism with stylish flair while experiencing the charisma of such modern stars as Maria Sharapova and the charm of all-time great Arthur Ashe. From Wimbledon to other prestigious venues around the globe, tennis courts are a place to see and be seen--and admire the skill of the players, of course! Crisp, sporty tennis outfits by the likes of Lacoste and Fred Perry--beautifully showcased here--epitomize a relaxed yet active life. The Stylish Life - Tennis will inspire you to brush off your volley--or at least dream about taking part in this leisurely, sophisticated world.
The Stylish Life: Golf
Golf is a sport with an illustrious pedigree. From the "home of golf," the Royal and Ancient St. Andrews, it has migrated from its Scottish homeland to the globe's most fashionable corners. Defined by a distinctive and quirky dress code, golf is as much about good-natured wagering that accompanies each round. For this very reason, it attracts socialites, captains of industry, and prominent celebrities looking to relax in sylvan surroundings. Access to clubs is highly coveted for the prestige it grants--as well as the sporting pleasures. But readers can bypass the pesky membership committees as they embark on an illustrated tour of the world's finest courses and clubhouses--not to mention glimpses of the stylish players who consider the fairways "a home away from home."
The Stylish Life: Football
What do the Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Franz Beckenbauer, Albert Camus, Diego Maradona, Elton John, and David Beckham all have in common? They all cross the borders from football to pop culture. They are football-obsessed pop musicians, singing footballers, Nobel Prize in Literature winners who play football, footballers who write books, pop stars who buy football clubs, or footballers who become pop stars (and want to buy a football club). They breathe life into the phrase "football" culture" while simultaneously ensuring that football garners even greater mass appeal. Football is much more than "11 people, 1 goal." It's a beloved big-screen theme--just think of Stephen Frears' The Van or Victory with Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, and Pele. It is the subject of hundreds of books and immortalized in hundreds of songs, so it's only logical that we devote a volume from our new The Stylish Life series to football: Here's to the fashion whims of the footballers on and off the pitch, the Cristiano Ronaldo-ization of football, 'rock-n-roll, and the glamorous life.
