The Biggest Feuds In Fashion History.

What is life without some tea?
While you are all at home self-isolating, we are opening the burn book of fashion, to bring you three of the most legendary fashion feuds in history.
First up – Coco Chanel versus Elsa Schiaparelli.
Even Coco Chanel – one of the most revolutionary thinkers of her time loved a good feud. And hers, was against rival designer Elsa, who at the time, was one of the only other influential designers around. Chanel’s designs were fiercely elegant, while Schiaparelli’s offerings were more eccentric.
Chanel referred to Elsa as ‘that Italian artist who makes clothes’, and the peak of their feud was when Coco ‘accidentally’ pushed Schiaparelli into a candle arrangement during a party, lighting her on fire.

Next, Lagerfeld vs Yves Saint Laurent
One of fashion’s most biblical feuds, began all the way back in 1953 when, as teenagers, Lagerfeld and Saint Laurent competed for a design prize, which Saint Laurent ended up winning. This led to a feud spanning 5 decades, which was juicier than a simple professional rivalry…
In 1973, Saint Laurent started an affair with a man called Jacques de Bascher, who Lagerfeld considered the love of his life. Ouch.
Finally, a recent feud – Donatella Versace vs Giorgio Armani.
This began in 2015, when Armani told the Sunday times that the late Gianni Versace had said to him “I dress sluts. You dress church ladies”.
Donatella immediately hit back, saying “I find it extremely rude and tasteless that Mr. Armani has put words in my brother’s mouth, when my brother spoke about fashion, the only word that ever came from his mouth was glamour”.
Donatella also said that this was the second time Armani claimed this was said, and the first time was immediately after his death, which Armani previously apologised for.
So guys, which feud do you think wins fashion’s biggest rivalry?
