At the beginning of the twentieth century, she stripped women of their corsets, bobbed their hair, and sent them out into the sun to get a tan.
She designed the first-ever couture perfume—No. 5—whose square-cut, cubist bottle became a symbol of art deco style, and which remains the most popular scent ever created.
Her ideas on elegance and what it meant to be a modern woman created an immutable sense of style that still resonates today.
Published to accompany a landmark exhibition in Paris, Gabrielle Chanel chronicles the designer’s life from birth through the evolution of her timeless style. Specially commissioned photographs by Julien T. Hamon showcase her designs, while essays from fashion historians complemented by rare archival documents, including pictures of Chanel herself, paint a portrait of the designer in her time.
