Chanel Gabrielle, a rebel at heart – Inside Chanel
In 2017 Chanel celebrates Gabrielle, the first name of its founder. See the first film of a tetralogy that offers new insights into Gabrielle Chanel the woman and the creations that made her legendary.
Throughout 2017, the first name Gabrielle will provide the inspiration for four films around the themes of rebellion, freedom, passion and allure, values that governed the life of Gabrielle Chanel, and that remain today an inspiration for all women.
Gabrielle Chanel’s life can be outlined in three verbs: to choose, to desire, to be. They characterize Gabrielle, the rebel at heart, who set her course for a destiny she instinctively knew was hers. Gabrielle made her audacity, her thirst for freedom, her irreverence, the source of inspiration and the birthplace of her creativity. Avant-garde, she would invent a style and look, revolutionize fashion before shaking up the traditional codes of jewellery and fragrance. Gabrielle functioned according to her own intuition in every domain, refusing dogma and established rules. Throughout her travels, her amorous encounters and through her relationship with the greatest artists of her era, Gabrielle forged the character Coco, the nickname given to her by her closest friends.
Through her life, Gabrielle Chanel embodied strength, character and a fierce desire for independence. Maison CHANEL, avant-garde and constantly innovative, has come down through the decades to become an unmistakable symbol of distinction, elegance and refinement.Find out more
