Allen Dulles


Coco Chanel

COMMENT: We have known for some time that fash­ion mover and shak­er Coco Chanel had strong Vichy French/Nazi affil­i­a­tions. An impor­tant recent book, “The Dev­il’s Chess­board” [8] about Allen Dulles gives us added depth on the sub­ject.

The late “fas­cionista” was net­worked with none oth­er than Reichs­fuhrer SS Hein­rich Himm­ler, hav­ing served as one of his go-betweens in attempts to nego­ti­ate a sep­a­rate peace for Ger­many with Allen Dulles.

Q: “That’s a won­der­ful per­fume you’re wear­ing. What is it?”

A: “It’s Chanel No. 88, Eau d’Auschwitz. Thank you”

The Dev­il’s Chess­board: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of Amer­i­ca’s Secret Gov­ern­ment by David Tal­bot; Harp­er [HC]; 2015; Copy­right 2015 by The Tal­bot Play­ers LLC; ISBN 978–0‑06–227616‑2; pp. 34–35. [9]

 . . . At one point, Himm­ler even recruit­ed fash­ion design­er Coco Chanel, bring­ing her to Berlin to dis­cuss strat­e­gy. . . .
