Douglas Kirkland, uno de los fotógrafos más destacados de la revista Look and LIFE, pasó tres semanas con el icono de la moda Coco Chanel en 1962. Publicado por primera vez en 2008, coincidiendo con el 125 aniversario del nacimiento de Chanel, y ahora en su cuarta edición, “Coco Chanel: Tres Semanas 1962 (Glitterati)”, ofrece un vistazo a la vida detrás de las escenas de un icono de la moda. “Enviado a París en un encargo para LOOK, Kirkland terminó viviendo con Chanel durante tres semanas, capturando los momentos públicos y privados de la leyenda en sí misma”, dijo la editorial en un comunicado.

En el transcurso de 21 días, Kirkland documentó a Chanel en su apartamento parisino en el Ritz, viajando entre citas en coche, ajustes con modelos, todo mientras llevaba su icónico sombrero. Después de probarse a sí mismo como fotógrafo de moda, Kirkland desarrolló una relación cómoda con “Mademoiselle”. Kirkland escribe sobre Coco Chanel, “Hice alguna sesión de moda para complacer a Mademoiselle, pero tenía que tener la película revelada en París para mostrársela antes de que ella confiase en mí.”

Douglas Kirkland, one of Look and LIFE magazine’s most noted photographers, spent three weeks with fashion icon Coco Chanel in 1962. First published in 2008 to coincide with the 125th anniversary of Chanel’s birth, and now in its fourth printing, “Coco Chanel: Three Weeks 1962 (Glitterati)”, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a fashion icon. “Sent to Paris on assignment for LOOK, Kirkland ended up living with Chanel for three weeks, capturing the public and private moments of the legend herself,” the publisher said in a statement.

Over the course of 21 days, Kirkland documented Chanel in her Parisian apartment in the Ritz, traveling in between appointments by car, fittings with models, all while wearing her iconic hat. After proving himself as a fashion photographer, Kirkland developed a comfortable rapport with “Mademoiselle.” Kirkland writes in Coco Chanel, “I shot some fashion to please Mademoiselle but had to have the film developed in Paris to show her before she would trust me.”
