INVITATION TO THE VOYAGE

Gabrielle Chanel's love of yachting and the seaside provided her with opportunities to take a break from her busy life in Paris, recharge her batteries and find new inspiration. This luxurious pastime took her to fashionable destinations in the company of friends, from Monte Carlo to Venice. Photographs from this era show her radiant in the Mediterranean sunshine with the Duke of Westminster. She is pictured posing on his yachts the Flying Cloud and Cutty Sark, wearing pleated pants or Bermuda shorts and a mannish waistcoat.

A striking sepia print shows her lounging on the fore deck, elegantly dressed in a simple polo shirt and loose linen slacks. With her chic, relaxed look, Gabrielle Chanel is the very image of the modern woman, a woman ahead of her times.
