Coco Chanel The Legend and the Life – Justine Picardie

Firstly, this is a beautiful book. The pages are thick and the photographs and illustrations (by Karl Lagerfeld) are beautiful.

This was an accessible and easy to read biography. Each chapter covers a different phase/aspect of Chanel’s life. The information is well-grouped and draws attention to recurring patterns in her life that might have been missed in a more strictly chronological account.

I would definitely recommend this biography to any one interested in Chanel’s life.
