Endlessly Quotable Chanel

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself,” Coco Chanel once said, adding, after a beat, “Aloud.” The legendary designer did exactly that for most of her life, which meant that she became not only one of the world’s strongest forces in fashion, but also one of its most quoted citizens. In honor of her Aug. 19 birthday, here’s a look back at our favorite of her many declarations.

LONDON.- Witness the cutting edge of fashion as you’ve never seen it before! This exhibition tells the untold story of this fascinating and little known area of Renais- sance art: revealing the fantastically skilled artistry behind the rapier; at once a weapon, fashion item, and rich jewellery object; representing the rise of a new and upwardly mobile middle class, sixteenth-century con- cepts of masculinity and the emergence of the duel of honour. Summer 2012 represents the perfect opportunity to investigate the historical and social development of the ancient art of sword-fighting. The modern sport of fencing is one of the nine original Olympic sports but is also a piece of a much older story which began with the Renais- sance fashion for carrying and fighting with swords in everyday life. A man of means in the sixteenth century went nowhere without his sword, and was always prepared to use it. – – Read more
