Quelle femme attachante et distinguée !

PurpleFlame3 says:

I don’t know what’s she’s saying but she comes across as a vicious old hag. I guess after sleeping her way to the top she was bitter. Great dress designer though.

You need to read history. More of the world speaks English than doesn’t, thanks first to the British Empire and then the American corporate one that followed it. Even the Chinese and Japanese are fluent in it, in all the cities and places that matter, and that’s about as far East as you can go!

xenbay says:

yes, this is very accurate assessment.. Chanel as a woman was a stubborn as a mule. But I think Chanel was also 100% French and its just in their nature to be stubborn and resistant to change like this. It’s hard for them to adapt to new ideas and ways from outside cultures, especially a French woman from Chanel’s era and background. This is why I say Chanel was more like an artist than a clothes designer. She was just expressing herself in her clothes and making what she wanted to represent.

xenbay says:

Yes Chanel was one of a kind for sure.. like Van Gogh and other Picasso. She made art, but in clothes. I think if you read her biography you could tell she was special from a little girl, making her own school uniform from wool which would later become her trademark style that’s still to this day instantly recognised as the Chanel look. Female TV presenters and news readers still wear Chanel every day! Not many clothes and styles that are so unique, are so enduring.

xenbay says:

English IS the international language and has been for quite some time now. Even the Chinese and pretty much all of Asia and India are fluent in it! I think you have to the British Empire to thank for that.

xenbay says:

Executed for not liking Jews?! That’s a bit much! If we executed everyone who didn’t like Jews we’d have another holocaust..then some 😉 The problem with the Jews is not so much they’re bad people, but just very successful people at seemingly everything they do. There’s so few of them in the world, but yet they’re at the top of every industry they enter because they’re smart and work hard. People just can’t accept that and think there’s some man behind the curtain conspiracy thing going on.

xenbay says:

Ah yes, indeed she did.. and at a time when tanned skin wasn’t considered at all fashionable or socially acceptable eh! Being pale and white faced was considered the thing to do! She went totally against the grain in everything she did.

xenbay says:

Lots of people openly supported the Nazi’s, all over Europe and the world beyond, even in America, presidents did. The world during the era of the Nazi’s was a very different place today with different society and clear social classes that people belonged to. The upper classes views were all pretty much aligned to the Nazi’s, that the Anglo-Saxons were destined to rule the world, and the lesser races were there to serve them. Many people still were born into servitude in England.

xenbay says:

That’s an interesting prospective.. one of the aspects of Chanel was also that she was very uncompromising and unwilling to adapt or change to the needs of her customers, for example in the fashion and social revolution of 60’s she just shunned it..”Chanel knows best and the customers best listen to Chanel” was her way of thinking..I’m studying culture in business atm as part of a biz degree, and this trait seems to be common in French people, an inability to adapt or face change very well.

xenbay says:

That’s exactly right. Chanel was a pretty astute and ruthless business woman really.. she realised what side her bread was buttered and soon made friends with the Nazi’s when they arrived in Paris..she saw it as an opportunity to end the battle over control of the Chanel perfumes, the much more lucrative product line of which she owned only a very minor stake. Since the owners were Jews, Chanel only had to play “oh poor me, the Jews duped me” they would snap their fingers and Chanel no5 is hers.

xenbay says:

I think Coco Chanel despite her humble upbringing and background, being orphaned was actually quite a snob really and became an elitist, seeing herself as superior to everyone. She did mix with the rich, powerful and high society people though, long before the Nazi’s came. The Nazi’s, or the officers who would have frequented Coco’s social haunts probably were probably her kind of people, wealthy, upper class Germans with style and breeding, Chanel admired that in people and sought it out.

xenbay says:

But she’s very old here in this interview, towards the end of her life! Her heyday was during the early 20thc when she made hats and then clothing, probably 1920’s-30’s was her peak period.. she went to Hollywood to work designing clothes for the movie stars of the day. She struggled to find her way after the war with the changing fashion, especially from the 1960’s onwards, but Chanel saw a big revival later on in the 1980’s as new designers came in..

xenbay says:

But by your Karma reasoning, you could say the Nazi’s as powerful and efficient as they were, as seemingly unstoppable, brought about their own downfall by the very nasty deeds they did to others, which brought the karma on them.. as the world doubled and re-doubled its efforts to stop them.

xenbay says:

Coco’s is dead so bad karma surely won’t be a problem for her now! She died a peaceful death in her sleep at a ripe old age and in the lap of luxury too by all accounts! So it seems her Nazi leanings and views didn’t bring too much bad karma on her during her relatively long lifetime after the short reign of the third reich.

xenbay says:

I think people should take the views of Coco in the historical context she lived in, and not apply modern-day moralities and the benefit of historic hindsight to them. Let’s not forget that Coco lived in Nazi-occupied France, where the Nazi’s hardly needed any excuse to kill anyone, or seize their business and assets. To agree with them and appear to share their views was a way to survive for many. For Coco, reading what is attributed to her, I think she genuinely disliked Jews and gays.

xenbay says:

It’s not a fault, it’s a personal choice. I can be against anyone I choose. And they can be against me. We’re all free to decide and choose whatever we like or dislike, who we like or dislike. To judge and condemn people you don’t know is a fault for sure, but to say I prefer not to be around those people, that’s a choice and a right.

The rest of the world doesn’t speak English… Oh god.. You need to be introduced to other cultures.

xenbay says:

She was actually facing a likely a prison sentence after the war, because of her affiliation with the Nazi’s..she was accused of spying and betraying France..it was only the intervention of Winston Churchill and the British intelligence services which saved her from a very public trial and questioning..

xenbay says:

She did fully support the Nazi’s views on some things. She was openly homophobic and anti-Jewish. She used her relationship with the Nazi officer to try and get Channel No5 from the Jewish family that started it..but they couldn’t help her, the Jews cleverly transferred ownership by proxy to non-Jews. After the war, she made out she was not sympathetic to the Nazis for obvious reasons, but you can read many quotes from that era in the media and her own writings which show she definitely was.

I speak Canadian french, so I had to watch some parts twice to catch everything, but this is a lovely interview.

Tamara Hacopian says:

What an adorable little lady

xenbay says:

If you have an interest in French culture and visiting France I agree. But I have neither. To watch an 8 min video learning a new language IS a waste of my time.

BlackRoof says:

I will not buy any more Dior…

…so long as they use Natalie Portman, an Israeli and part of the Settler militia; who persecute Palestinians, terrorizing and even committing murder, to take posession of ever more land, stealing field after field and hijacking resources UNLAWFULLY & BY ANY MEANS!
