Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel, pioneer of one of the most famous + recognizable brands in the world was born on this day in 1883. The modernist + expensively simplistic style that she is renowned for has been channeled to an extraordinary level by Chanel’s Head Designer + Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld. To celebrate her birthday + her legacy, Magnum Photos compiled a lovely photographic montage. Here are some of them along with others that illustrate the label’s style + power that Coco created.
