Lots of Little Black Dresses

The little black dress, the Chanel suit and Chanel No.5… all items are still part of today’s universal fashion vocabulary. But it’s not only those objects that are fascinating parts of ‘The Chanel Legend’ exhibition i’ve been to this weekend. Coco Chanel’s extraordinary life is also highlighted in the Gemeente Museum in The Hague. Her quotes like: ‘A woman is closest to being naked when she is well-dressed’ and ‘Life didn’t please me, so I created my life’, are embedded in a complete black and white setting.

The designs of Coco Chanel unchained a revolution in the way woman dressed in the 20th century. I love the brand, I love the heritage and I also love this exhibition!
