Chanel – Her Life
Chanel – Her Life explores every facet of Chanel’s universe: her fascinating private life as well as the famous icons of her fashion empire – the tweed jacket, the little black dress, N° 5 perfume, the pearls, the camellia… The result is a comprehensive biography that reveals Chanel’s style to be the outcome of rigorous elegance, resolute self-belief and a determinedly unconventional stance.
Picardie was granted access to Chanel’s archives and is the first author to have examined previously undiscovered private archives in the United Kingdom and France; and this unique knowledge underpins Chanel – Her Life. The book, designed and with drawings by Karl Lagerfeld, is the definitive biography of the tantalisingly elusive Coco Chanel.
