A Gabrielle Chanel mini-movie – in anticipation of Chanel Gabrielle, the scent

It’s August.
The phones are quiet. (Isn’t it bliss?)
And if you can’t take a two-minute ‘Chanel-break’ in anticipation of the launch of Chanel’s first major fragrance in 15 years – Gabrielle (after the designer’s real name) – you’re probably in deep trouble.
Of course we’ll be bringing you more about this hotly-anticipated scent (which, among other virtues, happens to have one of the most striking bottles we’ve yet seen – a true feat of glass engineering).
But now? Join us in a coffee with Gabrielle Chanel,– couturier, visionary, rule-breaker – as we hurtle through her quite extraordinary life.
