Here are some rare fashion sketches from the house of CHANEL through the 1950s and 1960s. Coco Chanel was most famous for her suit sets and it is amazing to me to be able to see these before they were ever cut and sewn from cloth. A fashion sketch is at first a dream then later materialized (and most are not). Which Chanel suit from the 1950s and 1960s is your favorite?

  4. These are all so stunning. I think B34 is my favorite though. Between the hat and the parasol and the overall color - it's perfect :)

  6. What beautiful sketches!!! I try sketching, but mine are, of course, nowhere near as pretty as these!
    I like the fourth suit, a little less boxy and has softer lines.

  8. These are amazing! But then all of the Vogue artwork of that time was stunning. And they almost never used photos back then.

    I think I need to write about the illustrator of that time from Vogue whose work I have a piece of . . . thanks for the idea! And stay tuned, I'll have that piece up in a few days, hopefully.
