YO. COCO.

Yes. She is all over our blog. We are in homage and mention her in overdrive.  Muse of Transcendance.

 

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel

….there are other so many heroes and muses that TRANSCEND…and Chanel leads the Band.

Chanel was born in the countryside of France to a mother who died young and a drifter father who disappeared a week later.  Raised in an orphanage of nuns and at 18, from a simple apprenticeship with a linen seller, she transformed herself into a seductress by thinking, dressingliving  and acting independently.  The result of her condident and wild style was to become the mistress of a Baron and an equestrian, both which propelled her into an aristocratic world she easily reigned over.  Perhaps the nunnery gave her resolve and a spiritual will anchored to and yet forming her own transcendent take on “a uniform”…qualities forming the backbone of women waking up to their potential in the 20th century.  

It has been said about Mademoiselle that beyond her passion for her work, nothing less than freeing women through their clothing and attitudes, she remained consumed yet unfulfilled in love. Yet her legacy of sport, equality, power, freedom and humor has engendered more brilliant moments, more infinite dedication to beauty and more LOVE well beyond her own lifetime.  There is “love” and there is “LOVE.” Bravo Coco! Yo, Coco!

See her home here in a really great video on this post…(scroll down when you get there!) (NINE SELF-IMPORTANT SOUNDING DESIGN CREDOS: HOME)

 This post on the Costume Institute Gala refers to Chanel’s influence on dressing.
