Last Friday, to finish a busy week, I took the overheated streets of Paris to go to the Faculty of Medicine located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.
Responding to an invitation from Chanel, I was going to discover the new high jewellery collection initiated by the workshops. The pieces, displayed in a sort of labyrinth, shone in this harmoniously arranged space where the music and the play of lights took the visitors on a very nice journey!
For this new opus, Les Talismans de Chanel gives us the opportunity to discover precious objects, remarkably executed by the house’s craftsmen, illuminated by diamonds, enamel and lacquer. A completely different collection from last year’s, completely different from what I was used to seeing from the house. And yet, such a Chanel collection! And I was enchanted by the sets on display… The best part is that I show you the pieces I liked the most.
