By Viviana Ponchia

C’è un prima e un dopo Chanel. Prima le donne avevano bisogno di una cameriera in line with infilarsi negli abiti. E, a sentire Jean Cocteau, «l’idea di spogliare una di queste dame period un’impresa gravosa da programmare in anticipo come un trasloco». Poi è arrivata lei, spavalda e spietata. E ha costruito un impero di eleganza e di charme cancellando schiavitù e costrizioni estetiche. «Coco Chanel ha creato l. a. nuova uniforme della donna moderna», scriveva «Vogue» nel 1926. Da figlia di un venditore ambulante a icona assoluta dello stile («le mode passano, lo stile resta»), ha stretto amicizie e amori nella Parigi di Dalí, Picasso e Breton, imponendo con decisione – insieme al proprio modernissimo gusto estetico – una personalità affascinante, ruvida e senza mezze misure. Questo libro racconta un pezzo di storia della moda e della cultura popolare del Novecento. Ma soprattutto racconta l. a. sua storia: dalla nascita del soprannome Coco all’ultima lezione di eleganza in una stanza del Ritz di Parigi.
