Chanel: the fashion name that epitomizes taste, glamour and style. Founded in the 1920s by the legendary Coco Chanel, the House of Chanel remains at the cutting edge of contemporary fashion. The book illustrates in brilliant colour the trademarks of Chanel style - the little black
dress, the instantly recognizable Chanel suit, the glittering costume jewellery - and explores the outstanding career of the woman who modestly credited her success to 'having been in the right place at the right time'.

With over 50 colour illustrations
