It's destined to be a big year for Chanel.
There's a new fragrance in the Coco family launching with a top secret new 'face'. (Watch this space, later this year.)
The 'Chanelworld' exhibition which first popped up in Harrods is on a bit of a world tour. (Latest pitstop: The Wynn, in Vegas. But be fast: it's only there for another week).
On the skincare front, we're already loving the long skin drink that their new Hydra Beauty creams delivers. (Though you'll have to wait till 18th May to get your paws - or should it be pores...? - on these.)
And tomorrow (Wednesday) their couture catwalk show happens, in Paris. Always a visual treat.
But as a glorious reminder of where the legend really began, we thought you'd like this little glimpse of Mademoiselle Chanel's apartment, on Rue Cambon. (For more - almost a virtual guided tour, actually - see the Everything Fabulous blog, where we stumbled across this little sliver of interior heaven.)
Beauty Bible has been to the hallowed sanctum of the apartment ourselves, a few (privileged) times. Frankly, it's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't be inspired to create exquisite fragrances, couture and make-up, in that gilded, quilted, Coromandel-screened environment.
We'd move in tomorrow, if we could. (Maybe we could just sneak in with a moving van, while everyone's distracted by the couture...?)
