Photo District News
Douglas Kirkland, one of Look and LIFE magazine’s most noted photographers, spent three weeks with fashion icon Coco Chanel in 1962. First published in 2008 to coincide with the 125th anniversary of Chanel’s birth, and now in its fourth printing, Coco Chanel: Three Weeks 1962 (Glitterati), offers a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a fashion icon.
Alison Nastasi
French designer Coco Chanel created a contemporary silhouette for the modern woman with the creation of famed fashion house, Chanel. Photographer Douglas Kirkland, who shot behind-the-scenes photos for films like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sound of Music, captured the fashion icon for 21 days in 1962. Coco Chanel: Three Weeks/1962 from Glitterati Incorporated is Kirkland’s chronicle of his Paris assignment for Look Magazine, during which he wound up living with Chanel for three weeks. The photos reveal an intimate side to the designer’s very public life.
Palm Springs Life
Kirkland had been with Look magazine a little over a year when he got the assignment to photograph Chanel. Despite their age difference - she was 79 and he was 27 - they found common ground that allowed Kirkland amazing access to photograph her both on the job and off.

A new book of Coco Chanel pictures – taken over just three weeks in 1962 by photographer Douglas Kirkland – shows a new side to the formidable and brilliant 'Mademoiselle'. Kirkland, who spent 21 days with Chanel in her apartment in the Ritz, at the studio preparing for a catwalk show, and on a weekend trip to Versailles, revealed that he built a friendly relationship with the designer – but never saw her remove her signature hat.
04/16/2015 - Stacey Appel
The book serves as an affectionate photo album starring the 79-year old fashion pioneer as she tirelessly works at her atelier and commands the streets of Paris...the photos are so intimate that we feel like flies on those hallowed workroom walls, watching intently as Chanel and her team go about their day-to-day activities.
May 13, 2015 - Yvette de las Nueces
The great photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson once said, ‘During the work, you have to be sure that you haven’t left any holes, that you’ve captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late,’ but as for Stephen Posen’s photographs in ‘Ellipsis: Dual Vision By Stephen Posen’, published by Glitterati Incorporated, it’s exactly those holes that make his work stand out, leaving a lasting impression.

    A Must for Chanel Fans

    Here is the Chanel who influenced my generation. What a pleasure to see her as an older woman, thoroughly at home with herself, working on clothes I remember seeing all around me when I was a girl.

    Incredibly Addicting

    It's official I am now in love with Coco Chanel. Reading this book has given me an inside look into her life and i think she is just magnificent. I was always a fan of the Chanel line but i never really knew the person behind it. This book is amazing and it is a must buy item!
