Assouline Chanel Three Book Set, Special Edition with Chanel Slipcase

assouline chanel three book set with chanel slipcase

I love collecting books on Chanel – Mademoiselle was such a fascinating artist and I love all of her creations.  When I found out about the special edition of Chanel books by Assouline, I had to have it.  One problem though – the three book set retails for $550!  Why so much?  Easy – it’s all in the quilting.

Chanel produced a “luxe slipcase … made of genuine black quilted leather and adorned with a metal Chanel logo” exclusively for Assouline.  The slipcase houses three editions celebrating Chanel’s revolutionary style: Chanel Fashion, Chanel Fine Jewelry, and Chanel Perfume.  One of the most visible personalities of her era, Gabrielle Chanel invented a style that was synonymous with modernity and chic and this three book set does her legacy justice.  Written by Francois Baudot and Francoise Aveline, each book is 80 pages with 60 images and the quilted slipcase measures 6.5 x 9.5″.

You can purchase the Chanel three book set and slipcase on the Assouline website.  If it’s beyond your budget, you can get the three books – sans Chanel quilted slipcase – on Amazon for $47.
