Description


A compact, illustrated collection of quotations on fashion, women, love, and life by one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century, Coco Chanel.


One of the most recognizable and revolutionary names in twentieth-century women’s fashion, Coco Chanel created an empire that continues to be one of the biggest names in the industry today. Famous for innovations such as the Chanel suit, shoulder bags, and the iconic “little black dress,” Chanel’s timeless and elegant style reflected her ideas of what a modern woman should be—ideas she was never shy about expressing.


This thematically organized collection of quotations by Coco Chanel pays homage to the legendary designer, sharing her witty and wise views on matters of fashion, style, women, and life. Bold, amusing, and unapologetic, Chanel’s insight is impossible to ignore.
