Book Description

Nov. 1 2003
Self-inventor extraordinaire, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel revolutionized the lifestyle of her time by inventing a modern concept of luxury. She set her stamp on the 20th century, promoting a new feminine silhouette both sophisticated and discreet. This modern attitude of understated luxe thrives today thanks to the creative talents of Karl Lagerfeld, artistic director since 1983, who has reinvigorated the house by reinventing its famous signatures season after season.

Assouline’s completely updated trilogy unfolds the spirit and heritage of the house of Chanel, from Coco’s revolutionary designs to Karl Lagerfeld’s present innovations. This elegant slipcase set includes three Mémoire volumes celebrating Mademoiselle’s revolutionary style: Chanel Fashion, Chanel Jewelry, and Chanel Perfume.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true fashionista's keepsake in need of more material Dec 3 2004
By ChloeDoc24*7 - Published on Amazon.com
I for one was thrilled when I found this three volume set on the bookseller's shelf despite being on the very thin side. There are clean reprints of some of the most iconic images of Coco Chanel and well chosen advertising images of the recent last thirty or so years. These of course include photos of the achingly beautiful spokesmodels Carole Bouquet, Catherine Deneuve and Anna Mouglalis for Chanel's various products. I am happy to have bought the set but I really wish there had been far more pictorial material. I am certain Chanel's archives are far more plentiful and the books left me wanting much more. I have not been able to find an adequate Chanel book that is still in print but this set will do for a start since it was bought at a discounted price. The written material is simply succinct and perhaps that's best. Fashion shouldn't be overanalyzed anyway.

This trilogy set in a box - Fashion, Jewellery & Perfume is a must have for all Chanel lovers. It features the most Iconic of all Chanel lines. This is a great addition to all other books on COCO CHANEL. A must for the collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointed Nov. 20 2010
By dizzylux - Published on Amazon.com

I just expected more from this 3 book set. The photos are very modern. There aren't close ups of the work of. There is very little text, just at the front of the book. I was hoping for something more in depth. It helped a little into my insight to CoCo Chanel, but not much.

4.0 out of 5 stars A piece of Fashion History Jan. 2 2013

This set is a nice introduction into the world of Chanel. Be it for the perfume or the cloths, it gives one a cross section of the development of the brand name.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what was advertised online June 10 2014
By Sheila Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The three books were not what was advertised online. Three totally different books and I ordered this because the books that are shown on Amazon.com matched the design scheme of what my client wanted. The books I received were different designs.
