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 métiers 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.
