Book Overview

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different - Coco Chanel

Fashion is ever-changing, influenced by the key designers that capture a moment in history; and Coco Chanel is arguably the most significant influence on women's fashion in the twentieth century. Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon is a compilation of Megan Hess' stunning illustrations of the 100 most quintessential moments through Chanel's history, from Coco's incredible life, to the impact of Karl Lagerfeld and the incredible items that have become fashion icons - the little black dress, the luxurious bags and accessories, glamorous jewellery and of course the renowned Chanel No 5 perfume.

Interspersed with historical anecdotes and famous quotes from Coco herself, Karl Lagerfeld and other key fashion icons of the era, this book is an elegant and immersive introduction to the moments that shaped Coco and the iconic Chanel brand - and how fashion, in turn, shaped their lives.

   Fun Read About Coco Chanel
Herve Leger's biography of Coco Chanel was light-hearted, full of witty illustrations. Anyone interested in fashion history can find the book.

   Captivating Storytelling Through Design
The book is truly amazing, said Sara Fields, co-author. Even if the book doesn't provide a thorough background of the making of the Chanel empire, it captures the style of the designer herself. I've enjoyed every second of this book, and I'm going to have to do another one. If you love fashion design, you'll love this book.

   Beautiful if using as a decorative item, poor quality if you intend to read it.
The book arrived in typical Amazon packaging in good condition, the seller said. It's clearly intended to be a decorative piece rather than to read, McBride said. While beautiful from the outside, the pages tear away from the spine if you fully open the book. The binding is terrible, Raymond said. It feels as if it is bound by post-it notes rather than a quality glue. The music videos were also disappointing. I understand that this is intended to display the illustrator's work, but I expected more facts and information about Coco Chanel. It's almost as if the book was made for a shelf or table. The rest of the pages are filled with little more than a paragraph of vague facts. Only a single sentence in this report says everything.

   Coffee table book
Coco Chanel is a French designer and actress. Haven't really looked through it all, but so far I like what I see, he said. Using it as a display on my desk.

   Soo Cute! IG @casadavis.decor . worth the money
I was looking for a book that had either black or white cover for my decor and this one end up looking just perfect because besides having the right cover, it is very interesting on the inside, too, thanks to the many cool stories and drawings, said Gillian. Insta-famous interior designer Casa Davis has styled many celebrities, including Kate Winslet and Cara Delevingne.

   Coffee Table Book
It's a pretty book, especially when you get it as a coffee table book. Not too big or not too small, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The quality of the pages is what draws me in. Nice pictures, too. Buy it now, says Dr. Steve Shannon, director of Nottingham's City Market.

   WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
I returned it because it was not what I was told it was supposed to be. Details of the blast are still being worked out, police said. Lots of short magazine type quotes, but nothing of substance. Like a comic book. I have read three extensive Coco Chanel biographies in the past year and wanted to see something that showed the details of her designs up close and her accessories, too. Definitely wasn't worth what they charged me for it, so I returned it and would not recommend it.

   A Coco lovers accessory
A great book, Gillian. Fantastic illustrations by Mr. Cowger. Megan Hess replaces Claudia Jordan as the magazine's cover girl.

   Great Gift for the Chanel Lover
I bought it for a friend's birthday. She's a huge fan of Chanel, but that wasn't in my budget. The illustrations are adorable and the info is great, Morgenthau said. I also really liked the metallic edged pages.
