Chanel - Red takes Power

Chanel Red takes Power

Focus on the Boy.Friend Squelette Edition Rouge

Take heart! “If you are sad, if you are heartbroken, make yourself up, dress up, add more lipstick and go on the attack (…)”: such was the sage advice given by Gabrielle Chanel in her time. Red to regain power? The Director of Chanel’s Watchmaking Creation Studio, Arnaud Chastaingt, takes this injunction literally with a new Haute Horlogerie Edition Rouge capsule collection composed of three limited editions: a J12 X-Ray and a Boy.Friend X-Ray Squelette, both dripping in sapphires, as well as a Boy.Friend Squelette. The beige gold of the case middle makes a beautiful contrast with the 38 baguette-cut rubies on the bezel, highlighting the openworked components of the Chanel Manufacture Caliber 3, which is also dressed in red. A symbol of power, seduction and passion.
