In Gemeente Museum in the Hague I saw a great exhibition about french designer Coco Chanel (1883-1971). The Chanel Legend tells the fascinating story of Coco Chanel and her celebrated fashion house. Her designs revolutionised the way women dressed in the 20th century. Chanel stood for elegance, style and freedom for movement. Her designs became classics and still feature in todays fashion scene.
This one is from the twenties.
The classic women's suits of the 1960s.
And her famous LBD, "Little Black Dress".
Since 1983 German designer Karl Lagerfeld started to design for the Chanel fashion house and succeeded very well to combine the inheritance with the current fashion climate. With style and respect and the esprit of Coco, as she once said : "fashion fades, only style remains the same".
