Inside Chanel Destinations. First stop: Deauville

 Like the stars that would form a constellation, certain cities made a lasting impression on Gabrielle Chanel. Deauville, Biarritz and Venice are part of CHANEL’s own astral chart. These destinations were linked to encounters, journeys, love or friendship stories, with some of the most important people in Gabrielle Chanel’s life.

Inside Chanel Destinations Chapter 22, first stop: Deauville. This first journey takes us back to Deauville in 1912. At this time, the French city is the epicenter of ambition and elegance. It is also one of the most popular seaside resorts in Europe…
