Lets talk about Coco (before chanel), born 19 of august 1883 under the name of Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, later called Coco chanel.
She was born in Saumur, France; at the time of her birth her mother was a laundrywoman named Jeanne Devolle and her father a market stallholder named Albert Chanel. Gabrielle’s mother died in 1895 of tuberculosis and her father left the family. Because of this, the young Chanel spent six years in a orphanage, When Coco turned eighteen, she was obliged to leave the orphanage, started working with the circus of Moulins as a cabaret singer where she was called “Coco.”
Some say that the name comes from one of the songs she used to sing, and Chanel herself said that it was a “shortened version of coquette, the French word for kept women”.
She was a pioneering in French fashion designer; started buisness by seling her name for “Chanel number 5” ( she worked for more than twenty years to gain full control of “Parfums Chanel”) opend her 1st shop called Chanel Modes established at 21 rue Cambon.
In 1939, at the beginning of World War II, Chanel closed her shops. She believed that it was not a time for fashion.
She had many affair in her life, but never married, not even to the Duke of Westminster or Boy Capel, the man she loved and loved her back, beleving: “There have been several Duchesses of Westminster. There is only one Chanel.”
In 1945, she moved to Switzerland, eventually returning to Paris in 1954, the same year she returned to the fashion world.
The re-establishment of her couture house in 1954 was fully financed by Chanel’s old nemesis in the perfume battle, Pierre Wertheimer.
She died on a Sunday of 1971, at the age of 87 in the Hotel Ritz where she had resided for more than thirty years..

Yesterday I heard a not so “peaceful and relaxing” about what happend in Oradour sur glade in the 1940’s.
A German Waffen-SS company came in the city on the 10th of june 1944. They separeted mens from women and children, breng men on the main square and shot them to death. Women and children were locked in the church and also shot to death, 642 people were massacred this day as a revenge for the resistance they opposed. They also looted and destroyed everything, burned the homes, shop, post office, and church.
This is one of my favorite restaurant in East Village called “the Yaffa Cafe” .
Yaffa’s s “open all nite” as the mural outside puts it. Inside, you’ll find leopard and zebra prints on the booths and tables, some bunches of plastic grapes and Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling, a very warm and cosy atmosphere welcoming for every “kind” of people!
if you have the chance to go, and if by any chance you take salade choose the carrot dressing ! it’s THE best
