gabrielle ‘coco’ chanel’s apartment

While Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel’s legacy is admittedly huge, it is rare that one actually comes into contact with actual relics from her everyday life. That is why I find her apartment– located on 31 Rue Cambon, Paris– so astounding. It is one of the few enchanting remainders of Coco left, and while it is not decked out solely in the classic black and white one would expect– it aptly shows that Karl Lagerfeld closely channels classic CHANEL in his latest India-inspired collection. Je suis enchantée, et vous?

  2. Hi Kathryn! A funny fact about this apartment is that she never really lived in it. She had an apartment at the Ritz palace hotel where she slept every night. This wonderful place was actually only used during the day…
