Video Exclusive: Chanel and the Diamond

With such a long and storied history, it comes as no surprise that Chanel archives are something of a wonder to behold.

In the past year, amazing Chanel-related treasures have been unearthed from these archives, such as the Marilyn and N°5 video and photos of the little black jacket throughout history. This time, the journey takes us back to November of 1932. In Une Manifestation Parisienne, we’re transported to the days of Coco Chanel and into her famous apartment on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré for the launch of her first jewelry line. This exclusive video contains footage of the actual launch event, along with descriptions of the jewelry and their unique presentation on wax busts protected behind glass. Watch the video above and be transported through Chanel history.
