Living with Coco Chanel : The homes and landscapes that shaped the designer Hardback

Part of the Living with series

Description

Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel was one of the most influential and ground-breaking fashion designers of the twentieth century.

This beautifully illustrated biography tells her remarkable story in a unique and accessible way, examining how the homes and landscapes of her life relate to her work. From her childhood at the convent at Aubazine to her boutique and apartment on Rue Cambon in Paris and her villa, La Pausa, on the French Riveria, Chanel's style was inspired and influenced by her environment.

Emerging at a time that allowed women to be more independent, she designed clothes that let them be free.

As she found fame, love and success, she used the memories of her past, and the way that she lived, to forge her own independence. Featuring designs, drawings, archive imagery and contemporary photography, Living with Coco Chanel provides a fascinating insight into Chanel's life, work and legacy.
