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.

I have a small library of books on Coco Chanel which I am always looking to expand. She was a tortured but fascinating person whose life often seemed stranger and more interesting than fiction. As such I am fascinated by her story not only because of her 'history' but also because of her timeless approach to style. Despite her flawed character she was truly amazing when it came to creating memorable items which have stood the proverbial test of time: fake jewelry mixed with 'the real thing', the LBD, knee length hemlines, the pants suit, No. 5 (still the best selling perfume in the world after all these years!) and other iconic pieces. This book weaves together her personal story and her fashion sense, but as the title indicates places more emphasis on the fashion than on the biography. Wisely the authors have used other sources for the personal information concerning Chanel and included more fashion 'sense' in the way of pictures, many of which I have not seen previously. At only 136 pages it is not a large book but it does pack a lot of information between its covers. For anyone who is interested in Chanel this is certainly a good read and is a first rate addition to add to your library if you are building one. You will come away either loving her or hating her, but it is hard to remain indifferent to Chanel once you learn a little bit about her!

The writing is not very good - more like a stream of advertorials. There is overwhelming praise of Chanel's work - flattery more like it - without any criticism or analysis. However the pictures are good if you are collecting photos of Chanel's clothing designs over time. "Chanel and Her World" is a better book - it was put together with more thought. "Chanel: The Couturiere At Work" is just a thin book - more like a magazine, with insubstantial prose. Get it used.

I'm using this as a model of research methodology for my thesis. Though it's not chronological and some people find that a drawback, it's actually a very thorough method of looking at the career of a woman through specific events, places, moments in her work, rather than just a boring overly biographical method. Very interesting and new way of examining a life that many people thought they already knew. I'm finding it very helpful in writing my thesis. It really does what the title says, it examines Chanel as a couturier through her work.

A very good look into the life of Coco Chanel.
Inspiring simplicity for timeless style

THAT COCO

Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel is adequately profiled in this book; from her very humble beginnings to her rise and fall -- and rise again -- this is an insightful biography of the woman and her work, which were for all intents and purposes inseparable. The authors capture not just the drive and determination which propelled Coco to the heights, but shrewdly illustrate how startlingly ahead of her time the designer was, and how much her work and ideas permeate fashion, even to the present day. Don't let the absurdities and excess of so much Chanel on the runway today fool you -- this woman was a visionary in her time, and the quintessence of her designs was paradoxically American; sporty, practical, possessed of a spare elegance, though she was in every way a Frenchwoman through and through. The early drawings of her first dresses are included here and are fascinating. Precious few exist, because -- as they book tells -- Coco Chanel preferred to design on the body, using live models. She was a perfectionist par excellence who introduced trends that transcended their time, and this modest book is a worthy addition to your library if you have any interest at all in the foundations of twentieth century fashion. There are many books on Chanel; I haven't read them all, so this isn't a comparative review, just the opinions of a fan of the couturiere as artist.
([email protected]) How to recall sectet life of the most influencal fashion Mademmoiselle of all times? For the first Chanel-biographyst it was a nightmare...So we should give a huge respect to evry new Chanel biography, and not just for this reason... Also this biography deserves great respect. Though, some questions aren't yet answered (they may never be), this colourful book, introduces us to some new detailes about the "Chanel cut" as well as Coco herself. Must read to any haute couture lover or dreamer...
