• Classics never die

    Coco Chanel
    Fashion Designer

    Born: 19 August 1883
    Died: 10 January 1971
    Birthplace: Saumur, France
    Best known as: The designer who created the "little black dress".
    Name at birth: Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel

    Designer Coco Chanel gave the world the little black dress, Chanel No. 5 perfume, and the revolutionary notion that style could be both classic and casual. She was the first to introduce black as a fashion color; her versatile, semi-formal "little black dress" became a Chanel trademark and an enduring fashion standard. After her death the Coco Chanel Company was directed by designer Karl Lagerfeld.

    Happy Birthday, Madame!

    She may not be here to celebrate herself, but we can commemorate her style and spirit.  

    Well, my friends, classics never die... and honestly, it wouldn't bother me at all to play dress up with Coco. But until then, I'm gonna share some nice quote of Marilyn Monroe... 

    "What do I wear in bed? Chanel No. 5, of course!" 

    Not bad at all! :)  Lucky bastards! 

    And as a final note, enjoy the new CHANEL N°5 film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet with Audrey Tautou and Travis Davenportby.
