In Vogue on Coco Chanel, acclaimed fashion writer and commentator Bronwyn Cosgrave traces the story of Coco Chanel's iconic designs and glamorous, racy life. Featuring original illustrations and images from celebrated photographers, such as Cecil Beaton, the book provides a completely fresh look at the fashion designer, who is arguably 'the most influential female designer of the twentieth century'. Coco Chanel pioneered classic easy-to-wear fashion for the modern woman. Perhaps her most important contribution to the fashion world was the simple, much-imitated 'little black dress', which made its debut in 1926. Other landmark creations include the Chanel suit and the quilted handbag. It is a testament to her lasting influence that these legendary designs remain as popular today as when they first appeared.
