‘Vogue’ and ‘Vanity Fair’ spreads show the irrepressible magic and impact of CHANEL’s heritage, worn here by Cara Delevigne and Lily-Rose Depp.
We have to ask how do they do it? How does Chanel continue to create links with the mistress of allure and couture? How does it capture the dissolute deceptions of the little singing milliner who was their founder? It’s partly Coco’s ability to constantly reinvent herself so that the archive is rich and multi faceted. But it’s also because Chanel knew how to pose, to be en vogue, to socialise through the media, and to become society’s first working woman celebrity.
