Description: No single designer has had as mesmerizing a hold on style in the twentieth century as Coco Chanel. In this elegant, profusely illustrated book, Janet Wallach illuminates Chanel style in all its glory -- from the fabulous fashions she created to the irreverent and glamorous life she led.

Like a character in a fairy tale, Coco Chanel rose from ordinary seamstress to reigning queen of fashion. Chanel was stunningly independent, yet totally feminine, and irresistible to men; most important, she was never afraid to be herself. A pioneer in an industry dominated by men, she turned her style into the revolutionary chic that set her fashions apart. Borrowing copiously from the wardrobes of her illustrious lovers (among them the Duke of Westminster and Grand Duke Dimitri of Russia), Chanel took trousers, tweeds, riding clothes, cuff links, and even neckties, and cleverly transformed them into elegant women's wear. With an understanding that only a female designer could have, she eased women's formerly confining way of dressing and adapted the freedom of men's clothing without sacrificing sensuality and femininity. Since then, women who seek the look of authority and supreme taste have embraced Chanel.

Her fans will devour all the stories behind such Chanel trademarks as fabulous fake pearls, minimalist hats, comfortable and beautifully structured suits, and legendary perfumes, and will marvel at the 150 astonishing photographs and illustrations. A feast of pictures and words, "Chanel Style" celebrates the woman, the look, and the legend.
