The past few years have been difficult for any admirer of Coco Chanel as her name has been slandered and libeled in conversations, supposed biographies and online. Uneducated accusations have flown that Coco Chanel was a Nazi, while anyone who either knew her or has researched her life with integrity has come to very different conclusions.
You may remember a while back I posted about Chanel’s only interview about WWII conducted by Malcolm Muggeridge, an MI6 agent. If you have not yet read the interview, I found it highly informative and most convincing since it’s the only evidence regarding Coco Chanel’s actions during WWII that are based on her word and not assumption and conjecture. You can read the interview by clicking this link: Coco Chanel – Malcolm Muggeridge Interview.
I recently learned of the Baudelaire Society’s intention to release a documentary film and/or book next year to further shed light on the evidence in Coco Chanel’s defense. From the letter below, it appears that Isée St. John Knowles, the President of the Société Baudelaire, will work with Gabrielle Chanel’s living great-niece Gabrielle Labrunie. I look forward to seeing what they produce and I will be sure to share it with you.
