A DAY AT THE RITZ PARIS
WITH GABRIELLE CHANEL

Mademoiselle leaves her suite, as she does every day, via the concierge's office, which she prefers to the main lobby. She sets out on the short walk to 31 rue Cambon, the iconic address where she has established her boutique and Haute Couture studios, the nerve center of the House of Chanel.

On the way, she passes the windows of her first apartment on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where she lived before deciding that the freedom offered by the hotel suited her better. She chose the comfort of the Ritz, so close to work, because it let her decorate the rooms with her own furniture, drawings, and objets d'art.

The Ritz lies at the heart of Gabrielle Chanel's daily routine. She returns there for lunch at the Espadon. The hotel is a living space, changing as the hours pass from a haven of peace to a throbbing, vibrant place to be. Dinner gives her the opportunity to meet close friends such as Misia Sert, Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau, in a friendly, familiar setting that has something new to offer every night.

CDMDIARY.COM
BY CAROLINE DE MAIGRET

As its ambassador and spokesperson, Caroline de Maigret is a close friend of Chanel. Producer, author, photographer, and model, her singular style and personality caught the eye of Karl Lagerfeld, who first had her model for Chanel at the Opéra Bastille in 1998.

The dedicated lifestyle website she set up with the House, "CdMdiary by Caroline de Maigret", is a natural extension of this partnership.

For its launch, Chanel’s ambassador presented her wardrobe essentials through a series of workshop, in the boutique at 51, Avenue Montaigne in Paris.
