This year has been full of announcements about big name designers branching out into the world of books, with the likes of Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin being just two of them. One that we couldn’t wait to hit the shops, was the Chanel Luxe trilogy from Assouline – a series of three books by François Baudot and François Aveline.
The hardback books are stunningly encased in a luxury black quilted case adorned with the signature double ‘C’ logo, which is what makes the collection just as coveted as an iconic Chanel handbag! Gentlemen… if you’re on the lookout for a Christmas present for a lady who loves the timeless classic essence of the Chanel brand, look no further.
The trilogy is marketed as the ultimate collector’s item (we won’t argue there) and explores the brand’s history including jewellery, perfume and even Coco Chanel herself.
Despite the set retailing for £475 – a tad pricier than your average trilogy – it has already sold out on the Net-a-Porter website, proving that regardless of the product, Chanel’s still got it.
