You may think you know enough about Chanel, but how well do you know the history behind every facet of the maison? If you're in need of an education or simply want to rejig your memory, then look to the latest trilogy published by Assouline, Chanel, that will provide just that.

Published just in time for Christmas (read: the perfect pressie for fashion folk) this triad of mémoire volumes explains the heritage of the fashion house, it's haute horlogerie and jewellery and it's iconic scents, neatly packaged in a convenient slipcase. With each book written by style scholars within their own rights – aficionado of french style, Anne Berest wrote Chanel FashionChanel Jewelry And Watches is written by maven of the luxury field, Fabienne Reybaud; and Vanity Fair and M Le Mag contributor Marion Vignal wrote Chanel Fragrance – this updated trilogy is bound to inform you of all things Chanel.

And to dazzle your mind visually as well as informatively, each book is filled with iconic photography that pictorially represents Chanel. From the most memorable fashion campaigns to BTS of the Chanel high jewellery workshop, this trio of tomes deserves pride and place within your home.

It seems that the proverb, 'bad things come in threes', has been stylishly somersaulted on it's head.

Chanel retails for £58 and can be brought here.
