    CHANEL BY WILLY RIZZO

    CHANEL BY WILLY RIZZO

    This book celebrates the longstanding friendship between Gabrielle Chanel and the photographer Willy Rizzo (1928-2013), one of Mademoiselle’s closest confidants, from the post-war Paris period in which they met until her final days.

    The book’s 180 photographs show Coco Chanel at work in her studio Rue Cambon, as well as Rue François Ier and Place du Palais Bourbon. Rizzo had the talent of catching the instant when a piece of fabric sculpted on a woman body becomes a clothing.

    French texts coordinated by Fabrice Gaignault, with English translations by Jane Lizop, Editions Minerve.
    A serie of exhibitions around the world will coincide with the book’s launch (São Paulo, October 3; Paris, October 15; Los Angeles, October 10; Geneva, November 5).

    It’s 10:30 a.m. and in Terminal 2C, gate n°5, of Paris-Cambon airport, under the glass roof of the Grand Palais, a row of check-in desks line the runway for Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2016 Ready‑to‑Wear collection. Passengers and Chanel Airlines hostesses parade some 99 looks.

    Karl Lagerfeld offers us an ultra feminine wardrobe that combines comfort and elegance, as well as chic and functional accessories, in a palette spanning blue (from sky through to midnight), white, red, metallic gray and black, as well as prints. Tweed, denim, leather, lace, guipure, silk and ottoman are used to dress silhouettes based on strict, straight lines or with full skirts worn over fluid pants. Void of a collar, pockets, braids and buttons, the iconic Chanel suit becomes “the absolute suit” - revisited as a blueprint and yet instantly recognizable.

    Karl Lagerfeld plays with the codes of the sky on knits and silks adorned with departure-board prints, arrow signage, and airplane motifs. Sporting double ponytails, wedge sandals with luminous soles or open booties in silver leather and transparent plastic, these travelers show off the latest must-have wheelie suitcase: the “Coco Case”.

    For evening, wide skirts and pants come paired with jackets and tank tops embroidered with cabin‑inspired silver embroidery, tacked with grosgrain ribbons.
