Chanel in b/w

The other night I have been watching “Coco avant Chanel”, the film about the life of Coco before she became a fashion designer. It is pretty funny to think that such an amazing character wanted to become a singer, a show girl, before getting into fashion.

Being a graphic designer I have always been fascinated by the beautiful simplicity of the double ‘C’ Chanel logo: out of all the iconic fashion designer’s it is the one that stands out.

“Simplicity is the key note of all true elegance” Coco said once.
But I am also enthralled by the way this logo has been stolen and remixed by the underground fashion scene. Here I post a collection of Chanel (or Chanel inspired images), strictly b/w, that I have on my mac. Hope you enjoy!
