According to the fashion scoop on Women’s Wear Daily Coco Chanel was (1) bisexual, (2) a frequent drug user, and (3) her man Hans Günther von Dincklage, was a spy for the Nazis. Say what?! I had no idea!
These tidbits along with other details about her life will be exposed in the upcoming book, Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life by biographer Lisa Chaney. In an e-mail sent Thursday by her Viking publicist, Chaney claims to have accessed documents in the Swiss Federal Archives among other publications that prove to have concrete evidence that the designer used drugs, embraced bisexuality and had an affair with Salvador Dalí while he was married. The book will be released this November with plenty of juicy details for fashion history buffs. I’ll definitely be looking forward to this book and I doubt if anything written would deter me of wanting my very own Chanel handbag. I dream of the day when I can afford an exotic Chanel Bag.
