Inspired by Coromandel screens, "COROMANDEL et les Maisons d’art" is an exceptional gift set that shines a spotlight on Maisons d'art and the precise, meticulous craftsmanship that plays an essential role in CHANEL creations.
Nestled at the centre of the box is the COROMANDEL Parfum, a voluptuous fragrance housed in a Baccarat crystal bottle. A display of craftsmanship that dates back to 1764, the bottle is sealed using the traditional art of baudruchage to preserve the fragrance until it is opened.
The fragrance comes with a precious piece of jewellery with contours that recall the motifs of Coromandel screens. The hand-hammered and patinated piece, featuring grey-gold plated brass adorned with water beads and rock crystals, is crafted by the Maison Goossens, official supplier for Gabrielle Chanel since 1957.
The gift box is lined with the iconic CHANEL tweed, a fabric intertwining threads of velvet, wool and lurex, handwoven by the Maison Lesage, embroiderer since 1858. A deep black strewn with shimmering red, silver, copper and gold, its colours evoke the sculpted lacquerware of Imperial China.
