French designer Coco Chanel created a contemporary silhouette for the modern woman with the creation of famed fashion house, Chanel. Photographer Douglas Kirkland, who shot behind-the-scenes photos for films like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sound of Music, captured the fashion icon for 21 days in 1962. Coco Chanel: Three Weeks/1962 from Glitterati Incorporated is Kirkland’s chronicle of his Paris assignment for Look Magazine, during which he wound up living with Chanel for three weeks. The photos reveal an intimate side to the designer’s very public life. The book is available on April 13, including a French edition and limited editions of 100.
