Je t’aime Coco!

One of the first women to revolutionize the way women wear clothes was French-born Coco Chanel. Her house of Chanel, still around today, began humbly in 1910 as a modiste specializing in millinery. Assuming we all know the gist of the impact and revolutionary nature of Ms. Coco, we would just like to take the opportunity to highlight some our favourite tidbits about one of our favourite women of the 20th Century.

In the era of dresses, skirts, petticoats and all other ladylike attire, Coco Chanel rocked the fashion world with cigarette pants, jersey fabric, “luxe sportswear” the creation of an en vogue way for women to smoke cigarettes and have affairs.

Peter pan collars, pearls, the LBD, and Chanel No. 5 aside, we love Coco for her ability to push the boundaries in what women can achieve and who and what the fairer sex can accomplish in both our personal and societal lives.

Cheers, and remember ladies…

“Gentleness doesn’t get work done unless you happen to be a hen laying eggs.” – Coco Chanel

Stay classy and fabulous,
