Vaughan reveals the truth of Chanel’s long-whispered collaboration with Hitler’s high-ranking officials in occupied Paris from 1940 to 1944. He writes in detail of her decades-long affair with Baron Hans Günther von Dincklage, “Spatz” (“sparrow” in English), described in most Chanel biographies as being an innocuous, English-speaking tennis player, playboy, and harmless dupe—a loyal German soldier and diplomat serving his mother country and not a member of the Nazi party.My two other purchases that I am quite equally excited about are Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty and 50 Fashion Designers You Should Know. I can't wait to go through the former and see the amazing photography displaying works by the late fashion designer. The latter is a great book with quick and dirty bios for 50 of the worlds more coveted designers.
These three books will be great additions to my growing fashion library!
