The making of a CHANEL handbag requires a wide range of skills. The ateliers work on the development and creation of unique designs in leather. Traditional craftsmanship joins cutting-edge technology in the deft hands of the artisans. The skins are cut by digital machines using stamps or following a pre-set line before undergoing a series of carefully planned manufacturing stages. This process requires painstaking coordination and harmony, rooted in a combination of know-how and exceptional mastery of technique.
The new episode in the podcast series, recorded in Gabrielle Chanel's apartment, features journalist and writer Susie Lau. The "Style Bubble" blog founder tells Amanda Harlech how the relationship with her CHANEL handbag changed over time. Holding her 2.55, she explains how she learned to resist the temptation of bringing everything with her, contenting herself with what's essential and eliminating the superfluous.
