CHANEL IN THE GARDEN AT LA PAUSA
ROQUEBRUNE-CAP-MARTIN

"One could get away with more on the summer Riviera, and whatever happened seemed to have something to do with art," F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in Echoes of the Jazz Age; an observation that would equally well have been applied to Chanel’s life at La Pausa; indeed, to the villa itself."
Excerpt from "Chanel her life" by Justine Picardie, Steidl, 2011.

The villa La Pausa, located between Menton and Monaco, was Gabrielle Chanel's summer home.

THE 19

The lastest of the perfumes created and worn by Gabrielle Chanel, the N°19 echoes her date of birth, 19 August 1883.

For the designer, numbers always possessed a particular power, which she associated with circumstances surrounding events in her life. Like symbols, lucky charms and objects collected and brought back from trips, numbers were part of her creative process.

MADEMOISELLE

Mademoiselle... This is how Gabrielle Chanel was addressed throughout her life. It was an unconventional choice, but one that conveyed her sense of freedom and modernity. Mademoiselle had love stories yet never married. She clung to her maiden name, flouting conventions of her time. She was, and remains, Mademoiselle Chanel, mistress of her own life, writing her own legend through the years.

With this “Mademoiselle”, Gabrielle could turn her story around; the orphaned girl from a poor background became a demoiselle, a “young lady.” This mark of respect extended to the door of her studio, which carried a sign saying “Mademoiselle Privé”.
