Coco Chanel - An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney

New and perfect for git giving to the fashion  and fragrance lovers on your list is a new biography of Coco Chanel by Lisa Chaney.

Ms. Chaney has done a lot of research even finding new information by viewing previously unknown love letters and journals as well the Chanel archives.

I particularly enjoyed her meetings  with royals including a whole chapter on the Duke Of Westminster , called Bend 'Or and  the chapter that tells of the fashion lines re-birth in the 50s .

There are plenty of photos as well dating back to 1904.

Available now for $ 27.95  in hardcover and e-book.

She was also a horrible person and a Nazi collaborator.

Those things are all covered in the book. It doesn't skip over them.
