A Sacred Place in Pictures: Coco’s Apartment


Some people go to Kaaba, some go to Jerusalem, and for some there is 31 Rue Cambon. With the risk of being sacrilegious, this address sounds to me like one of the most coveted and sacred places in the world, not only in fashion. I was in awe today for quite some time when I saw the last post by The Coveteur – Coco’s Apartment. The post is amazing, it shares so much, not only beautiful imagery, but also insights from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, her superstitious nature and the symbolism in her home, the furniture she designed, the little nooks and corners of the apartment and the endless bookshelves with dark red leather-bound books. Here are some of the images, but definitely make sure to visit the Coveteur to read the whole experience.

Priceless.

Really.

 The Staircase with the Mirrors!!!

Custom made crystal chandelier. Can you spot the number 5?

Suede sofa designed by Coco herself.

Wheat – symbol of prosperity and source of inspiratio for Karl’s SS2010 collection.

The iconic white chair and the mirror that was inspiration for the cap of Chanel N5.

Amazing, isn’t it? Nothing similar to the black and white, very clean shaped stylistic of her brand, but in the same time very meaningful and revealing of the nature and character of the most famous woman in fashion.
