“Fashion is not simply a matter of clothes,” said Chanel. “Fashion is in the air, born upon the wind. One intuits it. It is in the sky and on the road.” A passionate woman, Chanel found the inspiration for her designs in the simplicities of her everyday life. From the closets of her lovers to the time she spent outdoors on her frequent fly-fishing expeditions, Chanel never stopped seeking out ideas for new product lines.
