Inside Coco Chanel’s Private Apartment for British Vogue

Coinciding with the relaunch of Chanel’s flagship Paris boutique, 18 Place Vendome, VogueTV became one of the first camera crews allowed into Coco Chanel’s apartment. See the jewellery collection, inspired by some of Coco’s original diamond designs, as it is unveiled, and witness the artwork and superstitions that made such a legendary designer tick. Vogue’s jewellery editor, Carol Woolton, hosts our exclusive film and finds out why Chanel collected ornamental lions, how she brought diamonds back into fashion, how the quilted bag was inspired by her suede sofa, and why the number five became her lucky number.
