LE LION

Strength

The lion is Gabrielle Chanel's zodiac sign, which she fully embodied with her proud, passionate personality. She collected lion figurines and made the animal a recurring theme in her designs.

LA COMÈTE

Luck

"I wanted to cover women in constellations," said Gabrielle Chanel in 1932, while presenting her first and only high jewellery collection. Eyes turned skyward, she created jewellery pieces inspired by celestial bodies. Superstitious, Mademoiselle put her faith in the stars and made comets a recurring theme in her designs.

LE CAMÉLIA

Harmony

Perfectly symmetrical, it never loses its leaves; the camellia embodies a form of beauty that is steadfast and serene. Plucked from the lapels of jackets worn by dandies, the flower became Gabrielle Chanel's emblem in 1913.

Style

Mademoiselle broke with the rules of her era when she added a chain to her handbags as a way to free women's hands, taking inspiration from the straps of soldier's bags. Symbolising daring elegance, the chain has become an emblematic element of the House's style.

LES PERLES

Radiance

Capturing both warmth and light, pearls illuminate the complexion and reveal the inner radiance of those who wear them. Gabrielle Chanel played with strings of pearls boldly and freely, wearing them close to or draped around her neck, during the day as well as in the evening, in the city and even at the beach.
