Happy-Go-Lucky Book Review. “Little Book of Chanel” by Emma Baxter – Wright.
by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts
I happen to collect books and albums about Gabrielle Chanel and the House of Chanel, so when I spotted this one, I couldn’t leave it unacknowledged and as a result not purchased.
This precious little book (160 pages in a pocket size) walks a reader through the history of the House of Chanel, though only in therms of the very basis. It won’t be a groundbreaking lecture for a reader more familiar with the subject, as most information included in the book will repeat what is already known.
However, I did not find the book to be trivial or boring, as its beauty lies in great pictures and descriptive “to the point” comments related to them. The most important creations, jewelry, photos from fashion shows as well as retrospective marketing materials make it a great introduction or a brief summary of the long history of Chanel fashion house, not to mention a lovely source of inspiration for fashion conscious women who happen to like the understated elegance so typical for the House of Chanel.
