Face

COCO

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty.  Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.  Coco Chanel

Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971) was a French fashion designer of women’s clothes and founder of the Chanel brand. Along with Paul Poiret, Chanel was credited in the post-World War I era with liberating women from the constraints of the “corseted silhouette” and popularizing a sporty, casual chic as the feminine standard of style. She is widely regarded as the greatest fashion designer who ever lived, thus making the name of Chanel iconic. A prolific fashion creator, Chanel extended her influence beyond couture clothing, realising her design aesthetic in jewellery, handbags, and fragrance. Her signature scent, Chanel No. 5, has become an iconic product. She is the only fashion designer listed on Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

Experience

Louis-Ferdinand-Céline2

Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it.  Louis-Ferdinand Celine

Louis-Ferdinand Céline ([selin]) was the pen name of Dr. Louis Ferdinand Auguste Destouches ( 27 May 1894 – 1 July 1961), a French novelist,pamphleteer and physician. The name Céline was the first name of his grandmother. He developed a new style of writing that modernized French literature.  However, Céline’s vocal support for the Axis powers during the Second World War and his authorship of some explicitly anti-Jewish pamphlets, has meant that his legacy as a cultural icon is not without controversy.
