COCO CHANEL'S APARTMENT
THE CAMELLIA

The camellia, a flower of stark simplicity and pure white, could not fail to charm Mademoiselle Chanel. It formed part of her private world: here scattered on Coromandel screens, it also appears in chandeliers or in bouquets with rock-crystal.
Prior to being the flower associated with demimondaines or dandies, the camellia symbolized purity and longevity in Asia. Gabrielle Chanel made it a symbol of her designs, featuring it here and there in every item of a woman’s wardrobe.

For the Spring-Summer collection, delicate and simplistic camellias and poppies punctuate little black dresses and are featured in a variety of colors to enhance the look of bags, decorate hair accessories or accentuate the waistline.

Crafted in the workshops of Lemarié, the camellias are hand-cut in the shape of a heart; the petals are then formed using a die cutter.
