I just stumbled across this darling video by Karl Lagerfeld capturing the life of Coco Chanel.
The film, about 14 minutes long, shows the beginning of Gabrielle Chanel (Coco) as a hat maker. She impressed the creme of society with her beautifully modern designs. What I particularly enjoyed about the film was the weaving of women who enter Chanel's shop in outfits that inspired the quintessential Chanel line. From tweed to light suits to black to pearls, the sources of the timeless collection are all featured. Take the time to watch the little video of the woman before the black dress and pearls.
Enjoy your weekend, toodles!
