Coco and Igor

The little straw boaters in the Resort shows of Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta reminded me of Coco Chanel which then reminded me that there is another film coming out about the iconic designer. Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is based on the book Coco & Igor by Chris Greenhalgh who also wrote the screenplay. The book and film allege that the two had an affair although it’s not really known if they actually did or not but fiction is sometimes more fun than reality. The film crew was allowed access to 31 rue Cambon, Coco Chanel’s inner sanctum which lends to the chicness of the story. It will be interesting to see if Anna Mouglalis, in this film, or Audrey Tatou in Coco Avant Chanel is the better Coco. I look forward to the film’s release June 11th to find out!
