Prepare yourself to a very feisty fashion match Thursday night on channel France 5 with the airing of a super documentary featuring two leading icons of fashion.
On the one hand Coco Chanel, creator of the little black dress, on the other, her great rival Elsa Schiaparelli, inventor of shocking pink. Two charismatic and avant-garde women at the origin of two haute couture houses, in direct competition for the spotlight in the socialite salons of Paris during the 20’s. A duel at the top.
We like: high-end umpires such as Karl Lagerfeld, the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar London and Marisa Berenson, the actress and grand daughter of Elsa.
Chanel – Schiaparelli, black versus pink, Thursday 6 February at 9h35pm on France 5 TV.
