Costuming Coco


Coco Chanel has been all over the box office lately—played first by Audrey Tautou in Coco Before Chanel and, this September, by house favorite Anna Mouglalis in Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky. The latter has Coco in medias res at Chanel, which means a great wardrobe—and a pretty big challenge for costumers Chattoune Bourrec and Fabien Esnard-Lascombe, who work under the name Chattoune & Fab. But as they told, they had a little help from a ponytailed guardian angel. “Karl has an inspiration cupboard where he keeps little prized vintage tokens—not all of them Chanel—but just special little finds that he uses to help him. He opened that up to us and said ‘Help yourselves,’ ” Bourrec says. A gallery of their designs for the film are now on view over at the English mag’s site, which should just about hold you over until the flick’s 9/28 wide release.

    The Personal Style of Chanel is timeless proof that itself can always be feminine, stylish and comfortable at the same time.
