Couture wars and world wars with a healthy dose of love triangles and political drama.
No, this isn't a book about the Kardashians and our current cultural climate. This is the story of the feud between Coco Chanel, a designer known for classic, elegant, and timeless fashions, and her arch-nemesis Elsa Schiaparelli whose designs were bold and experimental for the time.
The story plays out with the looming invasion of Paris in 1938 as Lily Sutter, a recently widowed American teacher comes to visit her brother in Paris. Lily finds herself working at Elsa Schiaparelli's store and gets caught up in the drama of the explosive relationship between the two designers.
