Book of the week: Life Portraits – Coco Chanel
An illustrative look
This August 19 would have marked Coco Chanel's 133rd birthday and while there are dozens of biographies on the fashion icon, few are quite as unique as Life Portraits – Coco Chanel by Zena Alkayat and Nina Cosford. The pair, writer and illustrator respectively, offers a visual look into the life of mademoiselle Chanel, giving an artist's sneak peek into her residences, her fashion choices as well as her inspirations.
