From Voltaire and Brigitte Bardot to Cézanne and Yves Saint Laurent, French history abounds with artists and intellectuals, music and screen legends, philosophers, inventors, and bien sûr, elegance and luxury. "French Style" exports the country's best-innovations from universalism to the bikini, archetypal fictional characters including the Three Musketeers and the Little Prince, scientific and literary luminaries from the Enlightenment to Existentialism, not forgetting gastronomic delights, fashion statements, and Nouvelle Vague cinema.
Dynamic photographs juxtapose concepts from haute couture and scientific advancements to pop stars, politicians, and popular culture, making "French Style" as paradoxical and sophisticated as the nation it celebrates. This richly illustrated, fun and informal yet surprisingly informative compendium brings to life the savoir faire and joie de vivre that is French style.
