What did they have in common?

First of all, they have changed fashion and costumes.

A new perfume, a fantastic new jacket and the idea of trousers for women, all signed by madame Coco.

“I started to have a clientele of active women; an active woman needs to feel at ease in their dress. needs to be able to roll up their sleeves.”

Mr Yves transferred some heads in the female wardrobe: the blazer, safari jacket, the tuxedo, the trench coat, leather jacket, the suit-pants and dresses mixed with art,  as an homage to the masters of painting of the twentieth century.
