Chanel: Collections and Creations – Chanel’s combination of tradition, originality, and style has always made it the most seductive of fashion labels. Here the House of Chanel opens its private archives, revealing a galaxy of brilliant designs created by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel from 1920 on wards. Dazzling clothes, intricate accessories, beautiful models, and timeless design leave no doubt as to the lasting fame of her name and embody everything that has come to symbolise the magic of Chanel.

The book explores five central themes―the suit, the camellia, jewellery, makeup and perfume, the little black dress―and follows the threads from past to present to show how these key items have been rediscovered and reinvented by new designers. It includes many previously unpublished archive photographs and original drawings by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as glorious images from some of the greatest names in fashion photography. 139 illustrations, 83 in colour. Gift Cards are also available.
