Life before fashion

Top, Gabrielle in 1909 and bottom, in 1935.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to go and see Coco avant Chanel on Tuesday morning (thanks Neil) before it is released here on July 31st. I really was ridiculously excited about this film and i think that's the reason why i was a little bit disappointed by it. In saying that, it is a great biopic and Audrey Tautou really is wonderful as Coco. I was so intrigued by Chanel's life that i headed off to the library yesterday and picked up The World of Coco Chanel by Edmonde-Charles Roux.

In other exciting Chanel news, this new colour will be launched in October.
