Into the life of Mademoiselle.

ENGDuring the 21 days Douglas Kirkland spent shooting Gabrielle Chanel, he never once saw Coco remove her hat. We are in 1962 and she’s 79 years old. “This is a story about who she was, who I was, and how she affected my life.” Douglas Kirkland

FR Durant les 21 jours que Douglas Kirkland passa a photographier Gabrielle Chanel, il ne vit jamais Coco retirer son chapeau. Nous sommes en 1962 et elle a 79 ans. “C’est une histoire qui parle de qui elle était, qui j’étais, et sur l’impact qu’elle a eu dans ma vie.” Douglas Kirkland
