Few people have transcended fashion beyond their time as much as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. More than a great fashion designer, she was the creator of a unique and unmistakable style that revolutionized women’s fashion liberating women in the broadest sense of the word, and led the way for the evolution of the quintessencial French “maison”.

Jérôme Gautier, journalist and expert on photography and history of fashion, reveals and discusses in Chanel: The Vocabulary of Style the elements that make up the essence of the Parisian firm, recognisable in every one of its collections from the very beginning.Through eleven chapters, with titles as evocative as “The Body Liberated”, “Black into Night” or “Androgyne”, Gautier reviews the vibrant and creative biography of Coco Chanel, her unique style and her great legacy.

But undoubtedly the main attraction of this new book dedicated to the most influential fashion designer of all time, and edited by Thames & Hudson, is the illustrated photographic material consisting of 209 photos both old and new taken by photographers such as Edward Steichen, Horst. P. Horst, Man Ray, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Peter Lindbergh, Mario Testino, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. A fantastic combination of colour and black and white images to help us understand the greatness of the Chanel style.
