Lace & Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel by Horst

"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin."

Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939

We found this lovely quote from Coco Chanel, and wanted to share it with you. We figure that if you love luxury lingerie, odds are you appreciate the beauty of fine lace. Also, we simply love Coco Chanel and her influence in fashion as we know it!

What a pretty quote. I never looked at lace that way, but it's so spot on. Leave it to Coco Chanel.
