Yes, You Need the New Coco Chanel Illustrated Biography

Your closet isn't the only place you can show your love for fashion—your bookshelf is also a great reflection of your interests. We love adding to our book collections just as much as we adore shopping for a new season wardrobe. Sound familiar? If you agree, we found the perfect tome for your next purchase. 

As WWD reports, Chronicle Books has just released Coco Chanel: An Illustrated Biography ($16), which is chock-full of colorful images and informative snippets. The book's summary explains it perfectly: "Featuring handwritten text paired with sweet illustrations and a tactile cover with foil-stamped and debossed details, this giftable volume sheds new light on the woman behind some of the last century's most iconic designs—from her impoverished childhood in an orphanage to her dreams of becoming a singer and her tumultuous love affairs with Europe's elite." We're officially buying one for everyone we know.
