"Chanel is France's greatest figure... the most impetuous, the most brilliantly insufferable woman there ever was." Paul Morand Our beautifully designed re-edition of The Allure of Chanel is now on shelves. It is the story of Coco Chanel's life as told by her to Paul Morand when he was given the opportunity to write her memoirs. As such it is an unmissable and warm insight into Chanel as a person, as well as an icon. The elegant cover design is the winning entry of our first Pushkin Press Student Illustration award, created by Eilidh Baker. The Saatchi Gallery has also just opened the doors of its Mademoiselle Privé exhibition which celebrates the charismatic personality of Coco Chanel. We suggest you saunter around the free exhibition, journey through the origins of Chanel's creations then pop into the gift shop and grab your copy of The Allure of Chanel. Of course, you could also buy yours now from our shop. Watch Karl Lagerfeld photograph celebrities wearing the "Bijoux de Diamants" collection ahead of the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition: 'At a time when women wore suffocating corsets, she went looking for freedom.' - Vanessa Paradis
