Coco Chanel (1883-1971) is one of the twentieth century's most captivating personalities and a defining figure in fashion history. Yet whoever attempts to understand Chanel's life is confronted by countless myths, half-truths and rumours. In this book Justine Picardie discovers the woman behind the legend, and tells Chanel's story with a flair and clarity of which Coco herself would approve. Chanel - Her Life explores every facet of Chanel's universe: her fascinating private life as well as the famous icons of her fashion empire - the tweed jacket, the little black dress, N° 5 perfume, the pearls, the camellia... The result is a comprehensive biography that reveals Chanel's style to be the outcome of rigorous elegance, resolute self-belief and a determinedly unconventional stance. Picardie was granted access to Chanel's archives and is the first author to have examined previously undiscovered private archives in the United Kingdom and France; and this unique knowledge underpins Chanel - Her Life. The book, designed and with drawings by Karl Lagerfeld, is the definitive biography of the tantalisingly elusive Coco Chanel.

An Intimate Life

The controversial story of Chanel, the twentieth century's foremost fashion icon. Revolutionizing women's dress, Gabrielle "Coco'' Chanel was the twentieth century's most influential designer. Her extraordinary and unconventional journey-from abject poverty to a new kind of glamour- helped forge the idea of modern woman. Unearthing an astonishing life, this remarkable biography shows how, more than any previous designer, Chanel became synonymous with a rebellious and progressive style. Her numerous liaisons, whose poignant and tragic details have eluded all previous biographers, were the very stuff of legend. Witty and mesmerizing, she became muse, patron, or mistress to the century's most celebrated artists, including Picasso, Dalí, and Stravinsky. Drawing on newly discovered love letters and other records, Chaney's controversial book reveals the truth about Chanel's drug habit and lesbian affairs. And the question about Chanel's German lover during World War II (was he a spy for the Nazis?) is definitively answered. While uniquely highlighting the designer's far-reaching influence on the modern arts, Chaney's fascinating biography paints a deeper and darker picture of Coco Chanel than any so far. Movingly, it explores the origins, the creative power, and the secret suffering of this exceptional and often misread woman.

The name Chanel brings immediately to mind the signature scent of No. 5 and the understated but sophisticated glamour of a simple black dress and pearls. But to consider Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel (1883–1971) as simply a fashion designer fails to capture her social and cultural significance. As Linda Simon reveals in this biography, Chanel was an iconoclastic entrepreneur who rebelled against and manipulated gender expectations of her time. With her menswear-inspired designs, her loose jersey sweaters belted jauntily at the waist, and her svelte, unadorned gowns, Chanel changed women’s silhouettes, and she became known as a champion of women’s freedom. Chanel not only changed the shape of women’s clothing, but the narrative of women’s lives in the early twentieth century. From her very first hat shop until her death, Chanel sold more than fashion—she sold a myth that became as attractive for many women as her coveted outfits. Simon here teases apart that myth to explore its contradictions—Chanel was a self-proclaimed recluse who emerged as one of the most spectacular personalities of her time; she was a brilliant businesswoman who signed away ninety percent of her company; and she was a genius who claimed she was nothing more than an artisan. In this insightful book, Simon examines the world both reflected and shaped by Chanel, setting her life and work within the context of women’s history in France and America from the Roaring Twenties to the profound social changes of the 1960s. Drawing upon rich archival sources, Simon’s lively book is a clear-eyed look at a woman whose influence and legend transcend the world of fashion.

There's hardly a woman in the modern world today who hasn't heard of the Chanel brand. Yet, somewhat 50 years after Coco Chanel's death, her products and brand become more luxurious and expensive for those who can actually afford them. Coco Chanel's "simple, but sophisticated" fashion approach in the industry paved her way through difficult times of World Wars and depressions. Coco Chanel was not just a French fashion designer, she was a fighter who has mastered the art of advertising and self-promotion. Even though there was always somebody who helped her to open Chanel stores and distribute Chanel products, her talent and dedication to what she was doing was the obvious reason for her worldwide recognition among royalty families and businessmen. However, Coco Chanel was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth as she actually came from a very poor family background. That's why in this biography, you'll learn who Chanel was at an early age, and how she got up the ladder to a worldwide fame. It's a process that does not happen overnight and not easy to do, because of World War I, II, Nazis and the economic depressions in Europe and the United States. For few years Chanel was out of business, not because she failed bankruptcy, but because of the war and its dangers for Paris, France at this time, but just few years later she proved her "staying power" in the industry, and after a huge come back there was quite a demand and thirst for her products when things settled down for good. Perfume Chanel no. 5, Little Black Dress, Chanel Diamonds, Chanel Hats, Suits and Costumes were just a few of the most significant creations of the fashion designer. In fact, people like the former First Lady of the United States Jackie Kennedy wore a pink Chanel suit after the John F. Kennedy Assassination in Dallas, Texas. Chanel became a symbol of pain and horror after the terrifying events of the US President's assassination. Chanel also expanded her use of black colors over the years she felt that black was not only a symbol of mourning, but it also stood for a classic simplicity that was the hallmark of good taste and privilege. Chanel was also about elegance. It defined the fashion industry at this time as she invented completely different product lines and styles. She will forever have a place as an immortal icon in the fashion world. In this biography, you'll also learn more about Chanel's love affairs, relationships and some details of her personal life. Who really Chanel was as a person and what influenced her work to become extremely successful? Learn more about Chanel, it's more of just a brand or interlocked double C-logo, it's a legacy.

Berühmt wurde er durch seine kultigen Dilbert-Comics und -Bücher, die den Wahnsinn im Büroalltag pointiert auf die Schippe nehmen und treffend skizzieren. Doch wie kam Scott Adams auf seinen Stoff, seine Geschichten und seine Figuren? Und wie konnte er mit einem mundlosen Cartoon-Helden so erfolgreich werden? Die Antworten liegen in seiner eigenen Lebensauffassung, die er hier schildert. Und so beschreibt Adams mit dem für ihn typischen Humor, worin er überall gescheitert ist und welche Lehre er für sich daraus zog: Ziele sind etwas für Versager und nur Systeme machen einen zum Sieger. Ein Beispiel: Abnehmen zu wollen, ist ein Ziel. Aber sich gesünder zu ernähren, ist ein System. Diese und viele andere Einsichten führten Adams über viele spannende Umwege letztendlich zu seinem Welterfolg. Eine vergnügliche Geschichte über eine ungewöhnliche Laufbahn – nicht nur für Dilbert-Fans ein Muss, sondern für jeden, der herausfinden möchte, wie auch ein Versager erfolgreich sein kann!
