Fashion mavens who were miffed over the announcement that Lilly Pulitzer would be selling a collection at Target made nearly as much news as the announcement itself.
In 1921, Coco Chanel was preparing to take the wraps off her first commercial fragrance. She had already contracted the most renowned perfumer in Europe to create her No. 5 scent, designed the moderne bottle herself and sent samples to all the society women in Paris. But Chanel needed an extra push to help sell the fragrance at her boutique at 31 rue Cambon.
