Chanel-A Real Fashion Film!

I very much want to see Coco Before Chanel.



It looks wonderful and I wonder what its impact will be.
I have to say, as a girl who has always admired a 'man-look' in women's clothing, I am very interested to see how she came up with the androgyny for her pieces. Is it perhaps how the cabaret influenced her to defy convention? Her way of identifying with the wealthy men she admired for their independence? Or, a way of addressing the fact that her father left her in an orphanage? We'll see...

I enjoyed the film very much but I think that you should read the biography by Edmonde Charles Roux which is very good and much more insightful as to what went on in her haed over her life . Happy reading!!
