Classic Channel

As reported by John Fairchild in The Fashionable Savages

Chanel had said many times: "I love luxury and luxury lies not in the richness, or ornateness, but in the absence of vulgarity. Vulgarity is the ugliest word in our language. I stay in the fashion game to fight it."
I was put on to Fairchild's book by hearing an interview with André Leon Talley who rings the changes (at 5:25 into the interview) on the notion of "grace" which propels and impels the young boy from humble beginnings in the segregated South to the stratosphere.

And so for day 2082
