By the age of fifty, Coco Chanel was on the crest of fame and prosperity. She had everything a hungry little girl from a convent orphanage could ever want. But the triumph in his career and high position in society could not replace the warmth of the family hearth, did not make up for the lack of a loved one.
The fashion Queen had many fleeting and not-so-brief Affairs, and was credited with having an affair with a German officer, as well as with the Duke of Westminster himself. The latter even offered his hand and heart, to which Chanel replied: 'there are many Dukes and duchesses in the world, but Coco Chanel is one'. Her family became fashion salons, and children were replaced by unique costumes and dresses, in the creation of which Coco put all her heart.
The designer's models combined simplicity and elegance, conciseness and elegance of cut. Chanel's trademark is also a string of pearls - the perfect accessory to complement any ensemble of the collection.
