COCO AVANT CHANEL
Supremely elegant, achingly chic the well named Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was an inspiration to women everywhere.
Gabrielle is credited with inventing the little black dress, the sun tan for upper class women, multiple strings of pearls, the eternal Chanel No 5 still one of the world’s top perfumes.
The invention of the boxy short classic jacket, tailored dresses and trousers meant women could for the first time take mens tailoring skills and make them their own.
