The House that Chanel Built
Madame Chanel's Apartment:
To the world of the fashion, the design and the globe-trotting elite, La Maison du Chanel never tires in its appeal. Whether it be commercial endeavors or photographic feats, the coverage never ceases and the allure never dims. Here are a few personal images from one of my various trips into the icon's gilded salon.
Take special care to note the prevalence of:
- pairs or sets
- wheat stems
- omens of luck and good fortune
- quilted fabrics
- chinese lacquered panels
It's like an eye-spy for the couture-cult.
