Jacques Helleu and Chanelby Jacques Helleu, Susan Pickford (Translator), Laurence Benaim (Introduction), Susan Pickford (Translator), Laurence Benaim (Introduction)
Jacques Helleu is the eye behind the House of Chanel's enduring image, having explored the meanings of this legendary brand in daring commercials and fabulous print ads for the past 40 years. He has given tangible, glamorous shape to the essential mystique of Chanel's perfumes, by bringing together artistic luminaries (from photographer Helmut Newton, to director Baz Luhrman, to actress Catherine Deneuve, and countless others) and masterfully guiding the creative combustion that has resulted.
This beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated volume tells the story of Helleu's vision. Stiletto magazine founder Laurence Benaim's foreword puts Helleu's grand influence into perspective, and Helleu himself presents four decades of inspiration, arranged from A to Z in themes.

Chanel is one of the world's most recognized brands, particularly within the luxury arena. I found this volume gorgeous from its presentation to its textual consideration of a very important brilliant individual behind-the-scenes. I highly recommend this volume. I wish the house of Chanel would create a similar volume devoted to all of the Chanel haute couture collections!
