It's not Christmas for little while yet but please please please can we have this brilliant book for our unbirthday when it comes out in June? The French edition is due to be published next week (followed by the German edition in April) before - finally! - the English one arrives.
The book is the brilliant biography of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel by renowned British journalist Justine Picardie and apparently Karl Lagerfeld liked it so much he decided he just had to do some sketches for a new edition of it, which will be published by Steidl, as the first time round it was by Harper Collins. It looks just the sort of thing we’d spend a whole weekend curled up with, plus a vat of tea and our phone on silent. Bliss!
