About this deal

Now imagine the cumulative effect of a book where every sentence is like that and maybe you’ll understand my exasperation. Chanel has always and will always be a benchmark of quality for other designers and design houses to aspire to.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. this book pays the usual homage to the past and present designs and designers for the brand, with descriptive text and coffee table book format.Doing do causes the reader to either flip quickly past the images (a shame) or to forget the trailing topic (which makes for a disjointed thought process).

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Sometimes, 15 centimetres of fabric measuring 90 to 130 centimetres in width is enough to make three or four camellias – what precision, what sophistication and elegance in the cutting, the mounting, the finishing! A lush visual selection from the Chanel archiveessential reading for fashionistas and design aficionados everywhere. Neuware - Chanel's combination of tradition, originality and style has always made it the most seductive of brands. I really do admire (and appreciate) Chanel for her design philosophy that prioritized comfortable, attractive clothes for women.Nestled in linen clamshell presentation cases, these books attract collectors, lovers of the printed page, and those who devour the culture of our time.

This visual journey is enhanced by previously unpublished archive photographs and original drawings by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as glorious images from some of the greatest names in fashion photography. A must-have for fashion enthusiasts and admirers of Chanel’s unparalleled legacy, this luxurious book is a visual feast and a celebration of one of the most esteemed fashion houses in the world.The meticulous attention to detail is evident in every aspect of this book, from the impeccable craftsmanship to the glossy sheen of the pages. Here the House of Chanel opens its private archives, revealing a galaxy of brilliant designs created by Coco Chanel from the 1920s onwards, and now reinterpreted to become the motifs for brand new garments, accessories and beauty products. This book is a literary museum exhibition, a curated selection of 100 iconic and signature looks of the house of Chanel, from the timeless Little Black Dress to the impeccably simple tweed suit, the apothecary-style perfume bottle, two-tone pumps, abundant strands of faux pearls and stones, and diamond-quilted leather handbag, from Mademoiselle’s revolutionary designs to Karl Lagerfeld’s unexpected and even irreverent variations on her original codes.

The whole book flatters both Chanel and Lagerfeld, and fails to address any controversies that would have made the content more interesting.
