ju­nior fash­ion ed­i­tor, Al­lia Al Rufai, pays homage to a woman whose rev­o­lu­tion­ary con­tri­bu­tion to fash­ion has been un­prece­dented in ev­ery way. Al­ways a firm be­liever in clas­sics, made­moi­selle Coco gave us fash­ion sta­ples that still live on in our wardrobes, from the lit­tle black dress and tweed jacket, to the 2.55 bag. This is one woman who firmly lived by her fa­mous words, “I don’t un­der­stand how a woman can leave the house with­out fix­ing her­self up a lit­tle if only out of po­lite­ness.“The epit­ome of chic, Coco was un­con­ven­tion­ally in­spir­ing and knew how to play it cool at a time when fash­ion was re­stric­tive. Many decades ahead of her time, she had a way of mak­ing clas­sic and sexy work in the same out­fit. So here’s to a true fash­ion icon, for show­ing us the way to time­less style.
