Object: Chanel Fan

With each new high jewelry collection from Chanel comes a special complementary object.

For Coco avant Chanel, which focuses on the females who influenced Mme. Chanel early in life, it is an exquisite fan that marries two mΓ©tiers of the maison - the goldsmiths and the embroiderers. An 18k white gold frame set with white diamonds has an elaborate lace-like backing - the pattern drawn from the jewelry collection. Luminous grey silk panels are delicately embroidered with metallic threads and sequins, while the top section features inlaid mother-of-pearl. The base that allows the fan to be displayed in all its glory is carved white quartz.
