On a Sunday, Coco Chanel said goodbye to the world at nine o’clock in the evening, after she put the finishing touches to her new collection of outfits that were to be shown on January 26, 1971.
Coco chose to live in a private suite at the Ritz Hotel from 1937 until her death, and she used to say that it was her home, but she was cut off from it for about 10 years after World War II, when she moved to Switzerland after she was accused of dealing with the German occupier during the war.
Coco Chanel, whose original name is Gabrielle Chanel, revolutionized women’s fashion in the twentieth century, summarizing it by saying, “There is a world that was ending, and another was to be born. We needed simplicity, comfort and clarity. She presented all this to the world,” according to Agence France-Presse. .
Since her beginnings in the 2000s, Chanel has been heading in the opposite direction of the fashions of her era, wearing the clothes she designed personally while fellow men design outfits of perfect femininity.
Coco fashion is distinguished by its flexibility, as it is inspired by sportswear and borrows some of the characteristics of elegant men’s clothing. It has resorted to knitwear, jersey and tweed to create elegant clothes without appearing formal.
Coco was known for her attachment to the lucky charms that surrounded herself in her wing, including the lion, which symbolizes her tower and wheat ears, in a painting by Salvador Dali due to the symbol of happiness and happiness she embodies.
Although 50 years have passed since her death, Coco Chanel is still remembered by the world as a pioneer in fashion.
