More Chanel Books...

Chanel Jean Leymarie

In addition to Lisa Chaney's Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life coming out Nov 10th—in which she reveals certain secrets—this Fall will first bring us two additional books, listed below.

But first, and while we're talking Coco Chanel, the  Jean Leymarie classic volume, Chanel, was also re-released earlier this year with a completely redesigned cover by Philippe Apeloig. In this volume which begins with a brief history of fashion, "Leymarie takes the reader through Chanel’s early days, when she mingled with Jean Cocteau, Igor Stravinsky, and Luchino Visconti, through the development of her brand after her death by Karl Lagerfeld". And a "special essay on Lagerfeld’s contribution to the Chanel legacy, written by journalist Marc Lembron, brings this new edition up to date."

Now, here are the two new books also coming out:
