The World of Coco Chanel

The World of Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel not only changed the face of fashion, she changed the history of women in the process. "She stripped women of their corsets and feathers, bobbed their hair, put them in bathing suits and sent them out to get tanned in the sun. She introduced the little black dress; trousers for women; costume jewelry; the exquisitely comfortable suit that became her trademark." (via: yoox.com) Understanding Coco means understanding how fashion influenced our own history. The stunning photographs, beautiful writing, and amazing fashions are just icing on the cake.
