the world according to coco
the style icon!
a little book full of an elegant collection of legendary french couturiere coco chanel's maxims on style women and life. Turns out she had a lot to say
surrounded by the leading wits, artists and writers of her day including jean cocteau and poet pierre reverdy, coco chanel was fierce and uncompromising in her pronouncements of fashion. She believed for example that luxury is "the opposite of vulgarity" and that "fashion changes but style endures: and then there was this one: "a woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future"
much like her successor, karl lagerfeld, coco never shied away from controversy, declaring one day of her detractors:"i don't care what you think about me. i don't think about you at all". this little black book of coco-isms might simply be considered a handbook for a chic life.
