GABRIELLE CHANEL’S
FIRST VISIT TO NEW YORK

In 1931, Gabrielle Chanel embarks on her first trip to America. Taking advantage of an invitation to Hollywood by famed producer Samuel Goldwyn who wants her to dress his actresses on and off screen, she stops en route to visit New York City. Accompanied by Misia Sert, Gabrielle Chanel discovers a city that enchants her with its energetic pace. A reception is held in her honor at the Hotel Pierre where she stays.

On December 4th, the House returns to New York ahead of the next Métiers d’art show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
