Coco Avant Chanel

3/15/2015


Inspired by the movie about one of the greatest womens of entire history I watched the other day I've decided to dedicate one post to her, the one and only- Coco Chanel.

______________________________________________________________________________


Inspirirana filmom o jednoj od najpoznatijih žena u povijesti koji sam gledala neki dan odlučila sam posvetiti jedan post, jednoj i jedinoj- Coco Chanel.


She was born August 19th, 1883. in Saumur, France. Her childhood wasn't that easy. Her mother died and her dad didn't care about her what so ever. It's not quite sure where did she grew up or who took care of her. Some stories say that her father left her and her sister to her aunt and that she took care of them and some that he took them to orphanage and left them there. This part of the story about Coco will always be unknown. Coco was taught how to sew but she always had interesting new ideas. She also worked in clubs as singer were her nickname Coco came from. She was born as Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel and her nickname Coco came from one of the songs she used to perform.

Rođena je 19.-og kolovoza ,1883. godine u Saumutu, Francuska. Njezino djetinstvo nije bilo nimalo lako. Majka joj je umrla, a njezinog oca bas i nine bilo briga za nju. Nije u potpunostisigurno gdje je odrasla niti tko se brinuo o njoj. Prema nekim pricama njen je otac odveo nju i njenu sestruu njihovoj teti koja se brinula o niima, a druge pak price kazu da je da ih je otac odveo u sirotiste gdje su i odrasle. Ovaj dio priče o Coco nikada neće biti posve razješnjen. Coco su podučavali šivanju, a ona je uvijek imala neke interesantne nove ideje. Radila je i u kafićima i klubovima kao pjevačica otkuda je i došao njen nadimak Coco. Rođena je pod imenom Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, a nadimak Coco nadjenuli su joj prema jednoj od pjesama koju je pjevala.


Around the age of 20 she became friends with Etienne Balsan who first noticed her talent and offfered her help with starting a millinery business in Paris. Gabreielle was also known for having a lot of lovers and one of them was also Balsans friend, Arthur “Boy” Capel.

Kada je imala 20-ak godina sprijeteljila se sa Etiennom Balsanom koji je prvi uočio njen talent i ponudio joj je pomoć za otvaranje jednog manjeg dućana u Parizu. Gabrielle je bila poznata i po tome što je imala mnogo mušakraca, a jedan od njih, njezina novodna prava ljubav bio je Balsanov prijatelj Arthur ''Boy'' Capel.


In 1910 on Paris’s Rue Cambon Chanel opened her first shop were she sold only hats. After her buisiness started growing she opened several more stores and began making clothes. After and during world war II entier world was hitten by global crisis and so was Coco so she had to close some of her stores.

1910. na pariškom Rue Cambon Chanel je otvorila svoj prvi dućan gdje je prodavala samo šešire. Nakon što joj je posao počeo rasti otvorila je još nekoliko dućana te je započela sa izradom odjeće. Nakon i tijekom 2. Svijetskog rata cijeli je svijet bio pogođen globalnom krizom pa i Coco stoga je morala (privremeno) zatvoriti neke od svojih dućana.

 

And of course I can't not to meniton some of her inventions that changed fashion forever. She aways stood up for comfortableness- ,,Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.'' In 1920s Chanel launched her first parfume, now legendary- Chanel No.5. Marliyn Monroe herself said that the only thing she put on herself before she goes to bed is 5 drops of Chanel No.5. Besides this parfume Chanel's most famous inventons are timeless little black dress and women suits consisted of collarless jacket and fell-fitted skirt. Her designs were revolutionary for the time—borrowing elements of men’s wear and emphasizing comfort over the constraints of then-popular fashion.

Naravno, nemogu ne spomenuti neke od njenih ''izuma''koji su promjenili modu zauvijek. Uvijek se zalagala za udobnost- ,,Luxury must be comfortable, itherwise it is not luxury.'' 20-ih godina prošloga stoljeća Chanel je izbacila svoj prvi parfem, legendarni- Chanel No.5. Sama Marlyn Monroe je rekla da je jedina stvar koju stavlja na sebe prije no što ide na spavanje 5 kapljica Chanela 5. Osim parfema Chanelini najpoznatiji izumi su bezvremenska mala crna haljina te ženska odjela tj kompletići sastavljena od jakne bez kragne i suknje. Njezin je dizajn za to vrijeme bio doista revolucionaran pogotovo zbog posuđivanja elemenata iz muške mode i isticanje udobnosti bez obzira na ograničenja tada popularne mode.


Coco worked till the end, she died at the age of 88. There were a lot of stories who will come on her place to lead company, primarily designing. At the end they choose Karl Lagerfeld who is currently leading Chanel role. Today Chanel is one of the biggest companies not only in fashion industry but in entire world. Chanel brand today is known by amazing clothing, shoes, bags and also by their parfumes, makeup and skincare line.

Coco je radila sve do samog kraja, umrla je u 88.-oj godini života. Postajala su mnoga nagađanja tko će doći na njeno mjesto i voditi tvrtku, prije svega dizajn. Na kraju odluka je pala na Karla Lagerfelda koje i je i trenutno na čelu kompanije. Danas je Chanel jedan od najvećih brendova ne samo u modnoj industriji veći i u cijelom svijetu. Chanel kao brend je danas poznat prema svojim prekrasnim odjevnim komadima, cipelama, torbama, ali i prema svojim parfemima, dekorativi i preparativi.



Coco will always be missed and we'll never forget her intereting personality, interesting new ideas and the way she looked at fashion. Coco will always be known as one of the greatest womens of the entire history and is for sure irreplaceable.

Nikada nećemo zaboraviti njen zanimljiv karakter, inovativne ideje i način na koji je ona gledala na modu. Coco će nam uvijek biti poznata kao jedna od najpoznatijih žena u povijesti i zasigurno je nezamjenjiva.
