Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel's iconic tweed jackets represented women's liberation from the wasp-waisted silhouette of the Fifties, embraced by Jackie Onassis and Princess Diana. Although much of Chanel's fame stems from her lasting impact on the modern aesthetic style, her designs and creative process drew inspirations from historic authors ranging from Plato, Shakespeare, Honoré de Balzac, and Jean Cocteau. Author and editor Jean-Louis Froment emphasizes the interplay between Chanel's designs and her literary muses in this beautiful tome of masterpieces–paintings, jewelry, poems, and clothing alike.
