[ Coco my Legend ]
“A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion” ― Coco Chanel
A very wise & inspiring quote. Coco Chanel is a Legend, and the title of the current exhibition on show in the Hague. Last weekend we visited the Gemeentemuseum were we got to see her fashion designs, her costume jewellery designs & the first bottle of her perfume Chanel no 5. We read about her life story, her inspiring quotes & saw her hat designs that made her realise that her journey would be to work in fashion. There were beautiful dresses, suites & accessories on show, enough to make you very greedy but above all appreciate timeless designs.
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” ― Coco chanel
Coco Chanel still inspires a lot of people, to me personally she inspires me to to be on a journey “to create your life” instead of accepting it the way it comes to you. I find inspiration in her designs, style, elegance & most of all her endless motivation towards chasing your dreams.
Her vision towards fashion is a timeless vision, one we can still relate to in fashion today. She is a legend in the fashion she created her life journey as well as in her wise quotes that we still cherish nowadays.
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ― Coco Chanel
And the last quote i want to share but not the least, I can never apply perfume without a smile and to hear Coco Chanel saying:
“Where should one use perfume?” a young woman asked. “Wherever one wants to be kissed.” ― Coco Chanel
Enjoy the exhibition Chanel the Legend: in the Gemeentemuseum in the Hague until 2-2-2014.
