Coco - one of my all time favorite grande dame of design, and of amazing quotes. She loved comfort and believed that it was the best revenge. Her designs are as endearing as her words.

Her whole life seemed to be OUT of revenge! One wonders what her inner mind was like because of that -but SO chic :-)
