The controversial story of Chanel, the twentieth century's foremost fashion icon. Revolutionizing women's dress, Gabrielle "Coco'' Chanel was the twentieth century's most influential designer. Her extraordinary and unconventional journey-from abject poverty to a new kind of glamour- helped forge the idea of modern woman. Unearthing an astonishing life, this remarkable biography shows how, more than any previous designer, Chanel became synonymous with a rebellious and progressive style. Her numerous liaisons, whose poignant and tragic details have eluded all previous biographers, were the very stuff of legend. Witty and mesmerizing, she became muse, patron, or mistress to the century's most celebrated artists, including Picasso, Dalí, and Stravinsky. Drawing on newly discovered love letters and other records, Chaney's controversial book reveals the truth about Chanel's drug habit and lesbian affairs. And the question about Chanel's German lover during World War II (was he a spy for the Nazis?) is definitively answered. While uniquely highlighting the designer's far-reaching influence on the modern arts, Chaney's fascinating biography paints a deeper and darker picture of Coco Chanel than any so far. Movingly, it explores the origins, the creative power, and the secret suffering of this exceptional and often misread woman.

There's hardly a woman in the modern world today who hasn't heard of the Chanel brand. Yet, somewhat 50 years after Coco Chanel's death, her products and brand become more luxurious and expensive for those who can actually afford them. Coco Chanel's "simple, but sophisticated" fashion approach in the industry paved her way through difficult times of World Wars and depressions. Coco Chanel was not just a French fashion designer, she was a fighter who has mastered the art of advertising and self-promotion. Even though there was always somebody who helped her to open Chanel stores and distribute Chanel products, her talent and dedication to what she was doing was the obvious reason for her worldwide recognition among royalty families and businessmen. However, Coco Chanel was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth as she actually came from a very poor family background. That's why in this biography, you'll learn who Chanel was at an early age, and how she got up the ladder to a worldwide fame. It's a process that does not happen overnight and not easy to do, because of World War I, II, Nazis and the economic depressions in Europe and the United States. For few years Chanel was out of business, not because she failed bankruptcy, but because of the war and its dangers for Paris, France at this time, but just few years later she proved her "staying power" in the industry, and after a huge come back there was quite a demand and thirst for her products when things settled down for good. Perfume Chanel no. 5, Little Black Dress, Chanel Diamonds, Chanel Hats, Suits and Costumes were just a few of the most significant creations of the fashion designer. In fact, people like the former First Lady of the United States Jackie Kennedy wore a pink Chanel suit after the John F. Kennedy Assassination in Dallas, Texas. Chanel became a symbol of pain and horror after the terrifying events of the US President's assassination. Chanel also expanded her use of black colors over the years she felt that black was not only a symbol of mourning, but it also stood for a classic simplicity that was the hallmark of good taste and privilege. Chanel was also about elegance. It defined the fashion industry at this time as she invented completely different product lines and styles. She will forever have a place as an immortal icon in the fashion world. In this biography, you'll also learn more about Chanel's love affairs, relationships and some details of her personal life. Who really Chanel was as a person and what influenced her work to become extremely successful? Learn more about Chanel, it's more of just a brand or interlocked double C-logo, it's a legacy.

Campy, bitchy, outrageous, and quite a bit more than over the top, Abby Zinzo describes himself as “a cross between Auntie Mame and Louis the Sun King.” Abby has lived a life dedicated to pleasure, and nothing has given him more pleasure than owning, wearing, or merely contemplating the lustrous objects with which women and men have always adorned themselves. In this sexy, funny book that is part novel and part thesis on jewelry, Abby sits down to record everything he has learned over a lifetime, planning to leave this story along with his collection of valuable stones to his beloved niece, Zeem. He recounts the history of famous gems–like the fabulous Koh-i-Noor and the brilliant blue Hope diamond–and regales us with naughty tales of the women who made the beautiful jewelry their own, including Coco Chanel, the Duchess of Windsor, and Elizabeth Taylor. He also narrates his own sensational life, from Harvard undergraduate to dancer in a notorious Paris drag cabaret to his twilight as a man for whom gender is just another glittering ornament. Sharp, fascinating, and sparkling with its own inner fire, Jewelry Talks is precious gem in and of itself.

When Karl Lagerfeld was appointed to the helm of the then-sleepy fashion house Chanel in 1983, he set out to radically reinvent its image—not only through bold collections, but also by shooting the house’s campaigns himself. Lagerfeld’s photographs breathed life into the brand. Now, his campaigns span the house’s collections—luxurious haute couture, ready-to-wear, cruise, accessories—and have established Lagerfeld as a sought-after fashion photographer. Organized chronologically, Chanel: The Karl Lagerfeld Campaigns includes a carefully curated selection of photographs that showcase hundreds of spectacular clothes worn by the top fashion models and personalities of each era. Women including Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss are photographed in glamorous locations such as Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, the French Riviera, and Rodeo Drive. Filled with more than 600 photographs, plus an essay by fashion writer Patrick Mauriès, the book offers an unrivaled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes—and lens—of Karl Lagerfeld himself.

The authors examine the legacy of Gabrielle Coco Chanel, one of the 20th century's great icons of style. While Chanel mythologized her glamorous life through relentless self-invention, the bare facts of her biography are no less worthy than her legend.
