Synopsis

Jacques Helleu and Chanel by Jacques Helleu

Jacques Helleu is Chanel's eye. He has captured Catherine Deneuve shown as an enigmatic sex goddess, Vanessa Paradis as a tiny bird and Little Red Riding Hood clutching her perfume No. 5; he is the ultimate talented genius behind Chanel's image and publicity campaigns. For over four decades, he has explored the territory of a legendary brand through numerous ingenious advertising films and superb publicity campaigns. The greatest photographers (Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton), the greatest directors (Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, Jean-Paul Goude) and the greatest muses (Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Nicole Kidman) have all contributed to Jacques Helleu's vision, bestowing upon Chanel perfume glamour spiced with a twist of humour. In the form of A to Z, Jacques Helleu presents these various personalities and looks back on a rich and diverse history of his creative campaigns that have stood the test of time.

About the Author

Jacques Helleu joined the house of Chanel aged eighteen. In 1965 he took over responsibility for promotion. He has an infallible eye and an aesthetic sense in complete harmony with that established by Gabrielle Chanel. Laurence Benaim is a journalist who founded the magazine Stiletto in 2003, where she is now production director. She is the author of several books, in particular focusing on famous fashion houses.
