THE BRASSERIE GABRIELLE
Coco Chanel often attended the Parisian brasseries with her artist friends. Following theatrical performances, Gabrielle surrounded by Igor Stravinsky, dancer and choreographer Serge Lifar, or Salvador Dalí, would take her place in these enlightened restaurants where elegance, great minds and gastronomy created a harmonious blend. And, on nights when Boy Capel (her first love) did not accompany her to the Opera, she would spend the evening at Maxim's or at the Café de Paris.
With the "Brasserie Gabrielle" fashion show, Karl Lagerfeld, artistic director of Chanel, has provided a reinterpretation of this Parisian passion.
