This afternoon, with tea and friends, is a look at Fashion and Feminism in the 20th century, through the lens of the legendary Coco Chanel. Her style and fame matched the Modernist innovators of her time. She liberated women from the prison of corsets and gave a coolly spare new concept of elegance: beauty of dress attained with a minimum of needs and for the maximum of physical freedom. This second round of Coco will also include her place in the pulse of history, her role as the lover of an SS officer in Hitler's Germany, her portrait in troubling contradictions. Lavish photos and film clips in illustration. Tea and scones included.
