Beautiful camellia flowers have repeatedly appeared in the jewelry collections of the French House, and in 2019, Chanel presented a new high-jewelery collection ‘1.5 1 CAMÉLIA. 5 ALLURE where Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite flower takes center stage. The new collection includes 50 high-jewelery items, 23 of which are transformers with two or more ways of wearing.
Camellia is not just a flower. This is Gabrielle Chanel’s mascot, a style manifesto. In 1913, Mademoiselle is said to have borrowed a flower in a dandy’s buttonhole to adorn one of her chiffon skirts. Its sophisticated and elegant geometry can become a symbol of one whose character is unpredictable.
Gabrielle loved camellias. This flower, similar to a rose, but without scent and thorns, a symbol of simplicity and purity, has become the embodiment of the ideals of Coco Chanel. Chanel’s style and character were more suited not to lush roses, but to the restraint and geometric perfection of camellias, the strict order of their petals, their clear beauty.
Jewelry colors’ 1.5 1 CAMÉLIA.
The collection turned out to be very feminine and mysterious, at the same time dramatic and sharp. The designers of the fashion house focused on the transformation of jewelry, they are designed to adapt not only to the situation or the style and image of their owner, but also to her taste.
We also see the image of camellia flowers in the jewelry collection “Camélia”, the fashion house of Chanel, but this collection seems to me to be light and romantic, all the jewelry is as comfortable to wear as possible. There are many transformable items in this line of jewelry. Here we see the unique French chic and aristocratic sophistication of Coco Chanel.
