(from Patty – Hi, guys. Portia was kind enough to fill in for me again this week. I promise I’ll be back next week. I have lots of new things I’ve been trying and loving, but just am still a wee bit out of it. See you next week!)
Hi Posse, News is that CHANEL will be releasing their newest fragrance in the Les Exclusives line, BOY after Chanel’s financier and lover Boy Capel. I thought we could celebrate with a little look at this video. It’s about the making of one of the CHANEL Mademoiselle Privé Watch Collection pieces, Coromandel.
Enjoy this look into the artistry and time consuming detail that becomes a CHANEL watch. I love these videos because they give me a look into the background of beautiful things. It’s getting a peek into the process, the way these incredible works are undertaken. What a treat to be living in a time where we can see these things.
If funds were unlimited what is the one piece of Haute Couture or any of their sidelines in watches, bags and all accessories would you want most? My choice is the Hermès cashmere shawl. One day I’ll have one too.
Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel
CHANEL: Watch Collection
“Poetic and feminine, a delicate design flickers with each movement of the wrist. Discover the complex artisanal know-how behind the highly creative dial of Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel, an exceptional timepiece meticulously handcrafted using the sculpted gold technique.
Emanating rare poetry, the precious dials of these jewelry watches are inspired by the Coromandel lacquered panels that were so dear to Gabrielle CHANEL and faithfully reproduce their superb decors.”
