The book is a collection of photographs of Coco Chanel taken by Douglas Kirkland in 1962 . Kirkland was on assignment in Paris for the magazine Look when he captured some fabulous photos. The 104 page book gives a glimpse into her life - time spent working at her studio, leaving her suite at the Ritz Hotel and some images of her apartment. Even better, Karl Lagerfeld conceived and designed the book, providing the introduction and captions to the photos.
The book is due out this month and good luck getting your hands on it. It appears it's pre-sold out just about everywhere.
