Coco Chanel
Quotations


Why am I so determined to put the shoulder where it belongs? Women have very round shoulders that push forward slightly; this touches me and I say: “One must not hide that!” Then someone tells you: “The shoulder is on the back.” I’ve never seen women with shoulders on their backs.

Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck.

Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.

Fashion is made to become unfashionable.

Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.

The hat is not for the street: it will never be democratized. But there are certain houses that one cannot enter without a hat. And one must always wear a hat when lunching with people whom one does not know well. One appears to one’s best advantage.

Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics.

A style does not go out of style as long as it adapts itself to its period. When there is an incompatibility between the style and a certain state of mind, it is never the style that triumphs.
