31 Rue Cambon, PARIS

A rare photo of the fashion legend herself in front of her shop taken bDouglas Kirkland in 1962.
 Fashion changes, 
but style endures  ~COCO CHANEL
.
Recently, I had a lunch meeting right across from the same shop where she once stood. 
Of course I would not miss a photo-opportunity of the iconic building!

Although Coco Chanel had her private suite at the Ritz, which is within a walking distance 
from 31 Rue Cambon, she also kept a lavish private apartment in this building.
~Let's take a peek inside:
Her exquisite apartment is on the third floor...almost everything has been frozen in time!
.

Do you remember this great fashion moment back in 2008? ^
Karl Lagerfeld decided to recreate the '31 Rue Cambon' to the fashion crowd 
at the Grand Palais. A life-size facade of the Chanel building, complete with 
a street-runway had been built into the fashion show venue! ~how amazing was that?!
Greetings from Paris
p.s : Just found out recently that CHANEL has a Blog as well ~Oh là là indeed! 
~XOXO*
