I’m always one to have a book on the go, all does not sit well with me if I do not have a book to read. I will read ANYTHING. Obviously I have my favourite and least favourite genres, most of the time I like reading into people that I admire or who inspire me in some way. I’m currently reading Chanel: An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney about Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and it’s brilliant. Really well researched and with plenty of depth; the book is a must read for anyone interested in fashion.
It goes through Chanel’s life story, from her dire upbringing, to her love affairs and her eventual mega-success and the accompanying photographs provide a visual insight into Gabrielle Chanel’s personal life.
I would thoroughly recommend it, I haven’t yet finished it, but really wanted to mention it on my blog as it’s definitely a book that I’m so so glad I bought!
