It’s good to follow an unreachable Icon: Coco Chanel

I am reading again the fantastic book about Coco Chanel where she tells the story of her life. It is a great read because of the honest and harsh words she has for the world she lived in. “L’Allure de Chanel” tells about hard work, respect for your employees, how the high society of Paris got mad about Chanel and about the inner circle Coco Chanel was wandering in. I adore to read about her wisdom for life and the fun she makes of other Couturiers of her time.
