GABRIELLE CHANEL
IN ST. MORITZ

Gabrielle Chanel spent several winters throughout the 1930s in St. Moritz, a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. Surrounded by her friends, she would take to the slopes in CHANEL looks, wearing jersey tops and whipcord wool pants. Her audacious style paved the way for other women practicing the sport, allowing them a distinct freedom of movement. With the Coco Neige collection, Karl Lagerfeld proposes a new take on the spirit of winter sports so dear to her.

INVITATION TO THE VOYAGE

Gabrielle Chanel's love of yachting and the seaside provided her with opportunities to take a break from her busy life in Paris, recharge her batteries and find new inspiration. This luxurious pastime took her to fashionable destinations in the company of friends, from Monte Carlo to Venice. Photographs from this era show her radiant in the Mediterranean sunshine with the Duke of Westminster. She is pictured posing on his yachts the Flying Cloud and Cutty Sark, wearing pleated pants or Bermuda shorts and a mannish waistcoat.

A striking sepia print shows her lounging on the fore deck, elegantly dressed in a simple polo shirt and loose linen slacks. With her chic, relaxed look, Gabrielle Chanel is the very image of the modern woman, a woman ahead of her times.

GABRIELLE CHANEL,
ART COLLECTOR

If collecting is the art of juxtaposing works from different eras and places, Gabrielle Chanel had a certain taste for the exercise. Her interest in classical civilization, especially that of ancient Greece, converged with her love of Chinese antiquities, which she collected throughout her life, beginning with Coromandel screens. In her apartment at 31 rue Cambon, Mademoiselle created a dialogue between the bust of a Greek statue and some 18th-century Chinese vases, comparing their clean and powerful lines.

PARIS AND HAUTE COUTURE

Before Haute Couture, there was simply tailoring. In those days, fashion Houses made bespoke outfits to order for their clients. Only in 1858 did the first Haute Couture fashion House open in rue de la Paix, Paris. The system was turned on its head: couturiers no longer made clothes to measure for their clients, but rather sold them their own designs.

Many such companies opened in the following years, making Paris the city where "the whole world comes for its models". To this day, this uniquely French expertise offers a guarantee of excellence and creativity that has done much to enhance the city's reputation worldwide.

CHANEL, founded in Biarritz in 1915, and established in Paris in 1918, is the longest-standing Haute Couture label still in operation.
