Les Nouveaux Coco's

Fancy ladies will be running around the streets during autumn and winter 2011-2012!

 Karl Lagerfeld gave a tribute to Coco Chanel in his last collection of haute couture.
That means a lot of tweed, long gloves, suits and knee skirts... The keywords are simplicity and elegance.

Gabrielle Bonheur 'Coco' Chanel made her debut in fashion in the roaring twenties.

She was the one who made up the “garçonne-style” and gave liberty to women in their clothing during WWI. She dressed women in sweaters and pleated skirts with reduced waist.

"Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. " 

“Dress shabbily
and they remember the dress;
dress impeccably

and they remember the woman.”
        - Coco Chanel

xoxo, A.
