Chanel spent much of her life in the capital city of France meeting with her friends or her famous clients such as actress Romy Schneider. That’s where she became credited in the post-World War I era with liberating women from the constraints of the “corseted silhouette” and popularizing a casual chic as the feminine standard of style. Paris played a great role in her professional and private life. Key quarters inside the 1st arrondissement still remember Mademoiselle and her constant habits. Not only professional locations like the Rue Cambon where she had her “atelier” but also more intimate ones. Place Vendôme for example, was a familiar place for her particularly looking at the luxurious fashion boutiques and at The Ritz, the prestigious hotel where she lived during many years.
There are so many stories to tell about Chanel in Paris! As Karl Lagerfeld mentions himself: “Chanel and Paris are very linked. She lived in the Ritz, now there is a jewelry shop… it’s very Paris, there are many photos of her on the Place Vendôme. Even the Chanel N°5 perfume bottle is modeled after the octagon shape of the square.”
