Coco Chanel on the balcony of her Ritz Apartment in 1935
Mademoiselles's beautiful dressing table 1937
I was given this lovely book for my birthday a while back and when I was thinking what I would share with you today, I thought a few photos from inside the book might be nice.
This beautiful book ~ Chanel Collections and Creations, written by Daniele Bott, shares a lush visual selection from the Chanel archives.
Here the fashion house opens its private archives revealing a galaxy of brilliant designs created by Coco Chanel from 1920 onwards.
Fabulous clothes, intricate accessories, beautiful Models and timeless design, that leaves not a doubt as to the lasting fame of her name and embody everything that has come to symbolize the magic of Chanel.
This book explores five themes ~ the Suit, the camellia, jewellery, makeup and perfume,
the little black dress and past and present. It also includes many previously unpublished archive photographs.
Essential reading for the fashionistas and design aficionadoes.
The Quote in the front ~
'Luck is a way of being
Luck is not a little person
Luck is my soul'
