    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.

    Have read other books, not this one specifically... But there is something about Coco's quiet style, lots and lots of pearls and the lack of fear that has enchanted my world. I wish I could dress my teen in mini Chanel - she will have an immediate understanding of my love of clothes.
