Description

Coco Chanel was a horrible person and is an even worse icon for young girls. I have no issue with fashion icons being used in books for little girls, we all have our own interests and values. What I do take issue with is glorifying a woman who turned World War Two into an opportunity to hurt her employees (4,000 women lost their jobs during war time thanks to Chanel). Why? Because they wanted fair wages. I Coco Chanel lærer vi en 12-årig pige at kende, da hun og hendes lillesøster bliver taget i mod med åbne arme af en nonne foran et børnehjem. Ordene er få, og på siden står blot: “Dette er historien om pigen Gabrielle, der voksede op og blev Coco Chanel”. Som det også var tilfældet med Kahlo-bogen, er der givet plads til barnets egne tanker og bogen lægger op til dialogisk læsning, hvor børn og voksne samtaler om billeder, som kun ledsages af den allermest nødvendige tekst. Vi lærer, at Chanel foretrak nål og tråd fremfor dukker, og at de andre piger fandt hende mærkelig. I hendes ungdom begynder hun at synge, og det er her hun får kunstnernavnet, Coco. Hendes tilgang til tøj og mode er, at det – i modsætning til datidens brug af stramme korsetter ­– skal være både flot og behageligt. Det er ikke let for Chanel at overbevise datidens kvinder om, at en kvinde ikke behøver korset og pailletter for at se smart ud, men med hårdt arbejde lykkes det alligevel den stålsatte kvinde at bryde igennem som Coco Chanel. After growing up in Minnesota, I moved to the east coast for college and remained here ever since. I currently live in southern New Hampshire with a lovely wife, a goofy son, two crazy kitties and a lazy dog.

Though the series have the same author, the illustrators vary and also seem to be in touch with the personal style of the individual being featured in the biography. Just take a look at the covers of this as well as the Frida Kahlo bio to see the stylized differences. The Little People, Big Dreams series from Frances Lincoln is a series telling the stories of well known women, and the dreams they had as children, showing that children can one day achieve their dreams, no matter what they might be. They cover the hardships these women faced, but keep the stories appropriate for the readership. Each story also includes a short biography with photographs of the women.

Siempre he tenido una gran curiosidad por saber más de esta diseñadora, cómo revolucionó la moda en sus tiempos y en cómo se convirtió en uno ícono de la moda.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling biography series for kids that explores the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. At the same time, I work for clients all over the world, through my agents Anna Goodson in USA and Katie Pierrot in Australia. Coco Chanel er andet bind i serien Små mennesker, store drømme. Den første bog i serien er Frida Kahlo. 'Små mennesker, store drømme' er en portrætserie med nogle af historiens sejeste kvinder i hovedrollerne. Den henvender sig til børn fra 5-årsalderen, og fælles for alle seriens bøger er budskabet om, at en stålsat vilje kan bane vej for ethvert lille menneskes største drømme.Coco Chanel is the first instalment of Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara's Little People, Big Dreams series, and from a narrational point of departure, it presents a basic but definitely thorough enough introduction to both Coco Chanel's unhappy childhood as an orphan in France and how her talent for sewing, how her sense of and for fashion and her determination to prove that women should not (or rather no longer) be forced to wear restrictive and painful corsets revolutionised both the fashion industry and women's lives (and yes, finally made Coco Chanel and deservedly so into a world famous and wealthy fashion icon). Coco Chanel tells the story of the young orphan from France who was 'different' from the others, but who followed her dreams regardless to become one of the world's most iconic fashion designers.
