Presented in a beautiful package and accessible format, The World According to Coco (otherwise known as 'The Wit and Wisdom of Coco Chanel') is the perfect gift for fans of fashion in general and Chanel in particular.


French couturiére Coco Chanel has achieved legendary status across the world and continues to captivate young generations of fashion fans who eagerly collect and share her quotes, creations and insights. A close friend of some of the leading wits and writers of her days, from Jean Cocteau to poet Pierre Reverdy, Coco Chanel was fierce and uncompromising in her pronouncements on fashion, women, and life. Much like her successor, Karl Lagerfeld, she never shied away from controversy, declaring one day of her detractors: "I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all". Celebrating that spirit, this book presents a fabulous collection of many treasured pearls of Chanel's wisdom.
