Everyone wants to get closer to genius, to understand where it comes from and how it flourishes. A young Douglas Kirkland managed just that when in August 1962 the legendary photographer was granted three weeks with Coco Chanel.
Published to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Chanel’s birth, the stunning black and white shots give fantastic insights into “Mademoiselle’s” life as an established designer, tastemaker and woman.
