Coco Avant Chanel costume preview
One film I cannot wait to see this year is the Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel biopic, Coco Avant Chanel, starring Audrey Tatou.
"The relationship with the House of Chanel was excellent," costume designer Catherine Leterrier told British Vogue of the filming. "I was completely free designing exactly what I wanted for our film which takes place before Chanel created her 'maison de couture'. She started as a milliner. She became successful creating hats."
"For the show of the end we used authentic outfits from the Chanel Conservatory and Audrey Tautou wore a Chanel suit inspired by 'Mademoiselle' in the Sixties."
British Vogue got a sneak peek at some of the costumes, which you can view here.
Coco Avant Chanel will hit theatres July 31st.
