Little Book of Chanel
Responsible for some of the most ground-breaking fashions the world has ever seen - such as the little black dress, boucle jacket, fake pearls and two-tone cap shoes - Coco Chanel was a revolutionary of her time, siexing the opportune moment to give women what they wanted, just before they recognized the need. She took the basis of a man's wardrobe to create feminine power, providing a democratic dress code that ultimately delivered freedom, equality and understated classicism.
Little book of Chanel celebrates the life and life's work of this hugely influential couturier, charting her rise to success from a humble background through the global phenomenon of the brand as it expanded into perfume, jewellery, and accessories to the legacy that continues today. Even now, many years after her death, the designer remains the immovable figurehead behind the House of Chanel.
