Northern Women in Chanel

Nothing gets me more excited than tributes to my Scandinavian heritage. As a citizen of Norway, I love seeing the tiny country of only a handful of a million people in the spotlight. So, imagine my delight to find that not only are the beautiful women of Scandinavia being showcased–but in Chanel couture, nonetheless!

With unlimited access to Chanel’s archives, the duo shot close to 300 looks by the house in little over a year, including one-of-a-kind pieces dating back to the early 1920s. “We’re so close to nature here,” says Farago, who was inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s earthy heroines. “That strength and honesty makes for a graceful, down-to-earth kind of femininity.” source

This amazing 300+ page book called, “Northern Women in Chanel” will be released July 1 from Farago Publishing.

I can’t wait to have it in a place of honor on top of my stack of books on the coffee table! After pouring over the images, of course.
