LIVING LIFE WITH PASSION AND STYLE™

ONLY IN HAWAII…RARE PHOTOGRAPHS OF COCO CHANEL BY DOUGLAS KIRKLAND | May 19, 2009

Lifestyle drives me. Only in beautiful Hawaii can I emerge from a water session at Diamond Head, sun-kissed and invigorated, to the opulence and timeless luxury of the Chanel store in Waikiki. Without missing a beat, my friend Stuart gave me a personal tour of the rare photographic images being exhibited of the legendary fashion icon, Coco Chanel. It’s only in Hawaii that the Waikiki store is celebrating its 25th Anniversary and has an exclusive exhibition of photographs of Mademoiselle Chanel. It’s only in Hawaii that these rare photographs can be purchased and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation. However, the most intriguing and captivating feeling of these photographs by Douglas Kirkland, taken in 1962 as he shadowed her for three weeks in Paris, is having a glimpse of her lifestyle.  Besides the fashion, which is timeless, elegant, and just breathtaking, the photographs capture her incredible talent, her classic elegance, and her personality. It breathes life into her collections highlighting her quest for detail and her legendary style of the strands of pearls, the tweed suit, and the little black dress. This is an exhibition not to be missed.
