Chanel sequined trouser suit, 1937/38. Photographed by Cecil Beaton for the exhibition catalogue for Fashion: An Anthology, at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1972.
This isn't from Chanel: Collections and Creations but this book covers her designs, unlike most of the Chanel books on the market, which are strictly concerned with her fascinating life. Undeniably chic, this sequined trouser suit is a perfect example of Chanel's glamorous yet comfortable style.
