Chanel is an idea, a way of being, an ALLURE. “Just like the ephemeral, nothing lasts longer than the present,” Mademoiselle asserted. This nodded to Cecil Beaton’s opinion that it is impossible for a designer to “get out of the time stream”. Beaton then added “creating something that will reflect the moment is more essential than creating something outside the time stream,” Chanel certainly did not. A woman, who was once considered inappropriate for fashion, had a formidable vision for the future and was able to emphasis the details of her days. She was audacious and daring, innovative and creative. Chanel challenged her own time, and - carrying her irreverent attitude - her legacies keep inspiring us thanks to the genius of Karl Lagerfeld.

"Gabrielle was irreplaceable, Chanel is irresistible."
