There are books and there are coffee table books. Love x Style x Life by Garance Doré* definitely belongs to the later category. It’s one of the most beautifully illustrated books out there and, in my opinion, should be part of every fashionable women’s stack of coffee table books. Here’s why:
Love x Style x Life by Garance Doré
Garance Doré is one of the most successful and famous bloggers in the world. But she’s not only an extremely talented blogger, she’s also illustrator, fashion consultant and just recently published her very first own book: Love x Style x Life. In it she talks about growing up in Korsika, moving to Paris to work as an illustrator and her journey of becoming one of the most influential and important women in nowadays fashion world. She shows off her incredible illustrations and gives advice on love, life and style.
But is the book actually worth its money? Well, first of all it’s beautiful. On the inside as well as the outside. When I first saw the book on an Instagram picture I decided that it needed to be mine one day. I absolutely fell in love with the gorgeous cover. And it’s incredibly beautifully designed and illustrated on the inside as well. If you’re looking for a beautiful book to put on your coffee table than this is what you should be looking at.
Because that’s what it is, a coffee table book. They’re more about looks than content. Even though this one is very very helpful, tells you much about style and sometimes hilariously tells the reader about the differences between Paris and New York, it’s not much of a content book. Don’t get me wrong, Love x Style x Life is a beautiful and quick reader and to me, much better than the praised “How to Parisian“. And it’s the perfect gift for a fashion-enthusiast! But if you’re looking for something with more content, life-lessons and more of a “story” then I’d suggest you to steer clear of that one.
