Journalist Susan Stamberg interviewed Chanel archivist Odile Babin on NPR. It’s a terrific article and interview with lots of insight into the little things that the biographies don’t tell you about Coco Chanel.
As a Chanelphile, I loved this interview. I think I found my new dream job – Chanel archivist?? If only I spoke French! I knew there was a reason I was infatuated with Paris and speaking French as a little girl – if only I had learned. I suppose it’s never too late.
