'Gripping... In the deftest prose, Picardie plots one of the most extraordinary lives of the 20th Century. The book is lavishly illustrated, too, with images of iconic outfits and intimate photos from Chanel's private albums.' Mail on Sunday 'Fascinating. Chanel was a tragic figure of almost Shakespearean aspect - hugely successful, fiercely strong-willed, yet fatally flawed and eventually filled with regret.' Sunday Times 'The French fashion icon finds a shrewd and sympathetic interpreter in Justine Picardie... this handsome volume cleverly blends the life and afterlife of the enigma who became a brand.' The Independent 'Justine Picardie's vividly told account of Coco Chanel's life has all the elements of a novel: the mystery, the sense of loss, the quest for fame and fortune, the distinguished lovers... in the style of Chanel herself.' Daily Mail '[An] elegant book...The Chanel uncovered by Picardie is a storyteller [who] spun her own myth... Coco has, in these pages, come out of hiding.' The Telegraph 'A detailed and captivating read' Red Magazine 'A brilliant biography' Grazia 'Picardie sheds new light on the intensely private designer... Impressive' Stylist Magazine 'The darker facets [of Chanel] are subtly and carefully revealed by Justine Picardie.' Wall Street Journal 'Justine Picardie sheds new light on the darker truths behind the glossy myth... Guaranteed to be the most well-read accessory at London Fashion Week.' Daily Express 'Justine Picardie's thoughtful and beautifully illustrated Life ... illuminates the iconoclast who might justifiably be said to have invented the twentieth-century woman.' Times Literary Supplement
Sleek. Chic. Notoriously guarded. Welcome to the secret world of Gabrielle Chanel.
The story of Chanel begins with an abandoned child, as lost as a girl in a dark fairy tale. Unveiling remarkable new details about Gabrielle Chanel's early years in a convent orphanage, and her flight into unconventional adulthood, Justine Picardie explores what lies beneath the glossy surface of a mythic fashion icon.
Throwing new light on her passionate and turbulent relationships, this beautifully constructed portrait gives a fresh and penetrating look at how Coco Chanel made herself into her own most powerful creation. An authoritative account, based on personal observations and interviews with Chanel's last surviving friends, employees, and relatives, it also unravels her coded language and symbols, and traces the influence of her formative years on her legendary style.
Feared and revered by the rest of the fashion industry, Coco Chanel died in 1971 at the age of eighty-seven. But her legacy lives on. Justine Picardie brings Gabrielle Chanel out of hiding and uncovers the consequences of what Chanel covered up, unpicking the seams between truth and myth in a story that reveals the true heart of fashion.-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
