Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life

Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life

This autumn, “Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life,” will be released by biographer, Lisa Chaney, who claims to have all kinds of gossip on the famous designer. From drug accusations, to her sexual orientation, to a claim that she even had an affair with artist, Salvador Dalí during his marriage, this book is definitely going to be scandalous.

She’s promised to cite her sources and Chaney says she has also had access to Swiss Federal Archives (among others) which state that Chanel’s lover Hans Günther von Dincklage was a Nazi spy in WWII.

“Whether Chanel was aware of this is unknown, but after that war she lived in neutral Switzerland for a while, to avoid any proceedings against her,” said one e-mail.

The publicist declined an interview request with Chaney, offering to arrange one closer to the 387-page tome’s November publication date.

We love a good scandal and this new biography seems full of them.
