It's a lazy Saturday morning for me and I don't plan to leave my bed before 2pm. It is a well deserved sabbatical. I have been filling my morning with Organo Gold Latte Coffee--which has been assisting my weight-loss among other things--and watching any and everything that I can get on Coco Chanel's life.
I am starting off with Coco Chanel an Igor Stravinsky and I will end with Coco Avant Chanel. I just love these stories about her. Despite her blustering personality, Coco was a force to be reckoned with. She didn't talk a game, she was the game.
There was something remarkably striking about Ms. Chanel. Her fashion house was her life. But she also loved a few men. None more than Boy Capel boy she did love them and they her. Her visionary designs were ground-breaking and her drive catapulted her not once, but twice to the top. She was also the first designer to ever have a designer fragrance for which she oversaw the creation, from start to finish. Chanel No. 5 was created in 1921.
One of these days, I will own a Chanel designer piece. But at the moment I am just letting her timeless elegance inspire my F/W 2013-14 collection.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
