9780879515706: Chanel: The Couturiere at Work

In the years around World War I, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel challenged the world of fashion head on. Jersey knit fabrics, easy-to-wear garments based on men's sportswear, showy costume jewelry, and "the little black dress" are just a few of her innovations that have become fashion staples. In this lavishly illustrated book, for the first time the focus is on Chanel the couturière and her immense influence on the way women choose to look in the modern world.

Under the design stewardship of Karl Lagerfeld, the House of Chanel is today more relevant than ever, and in January 2010 Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky will be released nation-wide. As exciting as a front row seat at a couture show, Chanel: The Couturiere at Work is a compelling look at the fashion empire of one of the indisputable geniuses of twentieth century fashion.

From Booklist:

Whether it is a knockoff, a rip-off, or the real thing, the look of Chanel is unmistakable. Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel created the "ease of movement" couture for active women, stressed the importance of the little black dress, and was the first fashion designer with a signature perfume. This book is a historical look at the House of Chanel and at Chanel herself as a couturiere. Whether turning out stylish hats and jersey fabrics or laborious beadwork and jewelry designs, Rue 21 Cambon has continuously soared with success. Details of Coco's personal life, business savvy, and influential work associates are also covered, showcasing this marketing genius' fashion foothold. Upon Coco's death, revival efforts by other designers were made, but none so successful as Karl Lagerfeld's. He propelled Chanel to supermodel fame. Many of his styles mimic traditional tweeds and accentuate the fluidity of fabrics; however, Lagerfeld adds a touch of mockery and brass to modernize the look. Under Lagerfeld, the House of Chanel has made an impressive and monetary turnaround that would make even the irascible Coco proud. Lisa Orzepowski
