CHANEL BY WILLY RIZZO

This book celebrates the longstanding friendship between Gabrielle Chanel and the photographer Willy Rizzo (1928-2013), one of Mademoiselle’s closest confidants, from the post-war Paris period in which they met until her final days.

The book’s 180 photographs show Coco Chanel at work in her studio Rue Cambon, as well as Rue François Ier and Place du Palais Bourbon. Rizzo had the talent of catching the instant when a piece of fabric sculpted on a woman body becomes a clothing.

French texts coordinated by Fabrice Gaignault, with English translations by Jane Lizop, Editions Minerve.
A serie of exhibitions around the world will coincide with the book’s launch (São Paulo, October 3; Paris, October 15; Los Angeles, October 10; Geneva, November 5).
