Hello all! I recorded the new Chanel movie what seems like months ago & FINALLY watched it! So, now needless to say I am on a Chanel binge! What a woman!!! What a life! What a movie! Here are some pics of original Chanel couture from the decades that Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was designing for the house of Chanel. All of the couture images are from the Met.
1934 described of being made with Metal & fabric! Stunning.
1936 How incredibly timeless. I would love to throw this number on and go somewhere spectacular! The opera maybe?
1984 I love this color & fabric! It is breathtaking. Oh this one is not from a time when Chanel was living & operating the couture house. It was too beautiful to pass up.
1938 Unbelievably beautiful!
1924 A classic Chanel
The famous staircase that Coco would quietly sit on to view the reactions of the journalists and critics watching her shows. They say that her employees were instructed to spray her signature perfume before she came in so she would be greeted by the scent. I'm going to tell my husband to do that before I come home everyday! I wonder if he would do it? :)This is her dining room. Could you just imagine sitting here at one her famous parties with the likes of Picasso & Missia! A girl could dream, can't she!
Also, sharing attention in this famous living room is a beige sofa. It is said that Chanel was very particular about who she would let sit that sofa! It seems almost sacrilegious that they let people sit on it today! My goodness!
Here is a lovely example of a set of her "pairs" a very miniature little birdcage. Oh! How ravishing would that look in my boudoir!?!

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. ~Coco Chanel
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ~Coco Chanel
