Furnishings

Drawings
Drawings by Jean Cocteau and Christian Bérard evoke the creative spirits in Chanel's circle at that time, offering an allegory of her life as a designer.

Vermeil boxes
"On the dressing table were the vermeil boxes given to her by the Duke of Westminster, brushes, and the chamois cloth with her jewelry for the day."

"THE RITZ IS MY HOME"

In 1937, François Kollar realized a photoshoot of Gabrielle Chanel in her suite at the Ritz Paris. Published for the first time in 1937, the picture was chosen to illustrate the only Chanel n° 5 perfume advertisement, that was embodied by the designer herself.
