Overview

Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky by Chris Greenhalgh

Coco Chanel and Composer Igor Stravinsky.
Their love affair inspired their art.
Their art defined an era.

In 1913, at the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, the young couturiere Coco Chanel witnesses the birth of a musical revolution- one that, like her designs, rips down the artifice of the old regime and ushers in something profoundly modern. Seven years later, she invites Stravinsky and his family, now exiled from their Russian homeland, for a summer at her villa, and the powerful charge between them ignites into a deep love affair. As Stravinsky enjoys a new burst of creativity and Chanel brings forth her own revolutionary creation-the perfume Chanel No. 5-their love threatens to overtake work, family and life.

I very much enjoyed reading this tale of an iconic self-made woman. The story line was a bit predictable, however the writing style was light and characters well-depicted and developed. I recommend this book as a light reading to escape daily routines:)

Found it really interesting because of the historical impact of each of the main characters. I left me wanting more, though. I wanted more details of the lives afterwards. It was as though the reader was walked out the door, left to look at the window display and figure out what happens to the mannequins next season and thereafter.
