THE ALLURE OF CHANEL
BY PAUL MORAND

Based on a series of intimate conversations between Morand and Coco Chanel, written in the great storyteller's prose, this book artfully sketches the character of the elusive, mysterious and charming creature who inspired Malraux to say; "Chanel , De Gaulle and Picasso are the greatest figures of our times." Hailed on its publication in 1976 as "a great celebration of a book, a finely cut, sparkling gem", The Allure of Chanel attracted the attention of Karl Lagerfeld, who embellished it with seventy-three drawings, sketched for this special illustrated edition.*
