'Life Portraits – Coco Chanel' is a new book by Zena Alkayat and Nina Cosford that celebrates the iconic designer's sense of style through playful, free-hand illustrations. Alkayat's words are matched by Cosford's portraits -- each showcased in a vibrant color palette -- and are used to describe pages dedicated to both Coco's dynamic clothing designs as well as her ultra glamorous accessory creations.

The perfect way to celebrate Coco Chanel's recent birthday, this book is a new take on traditional biographical works. Rather than featuring pages of heavy text and limited imagery, 'Life Portraits – Coco Chanel' brings the fashion icon's inspiration to life for readers with its fun drawings.

In addition to featuring illustrations that highlight fashion inspirations, this anthology also focuses on Coco's French heritage as well as her love of interior design.
