Thanks to Coco Chanel's wonderful spirit, Chanel Number Five has entered the wonderful world of aromas. Up until now, the scent is the best selling fragrance in the world. Coco Chanel once said about this fragrance, "This spirit is for women that smell like women." The prominent works of Coco Chanel include beautiful and still actual collections of clothes and bonnets as well as collections of watches and jewelry.
Coco Chanel is a woman with many interests. She tried to make everything she saw graceful and beautiful. In the middle of the twenty years that made up the 20th century, Channel got enthusiastic about the world of the jeweler with the creation of the jewelry ornament collection.
She became the first designer to use natural stones. With her contemporaries' opinion, Chanel fine jewelry products were magnificent and there was no doubt that they were created by the great trendsetter of the time. In November of 1932, the first exhibition of Chanel jewelry was opened. It was organized because the international league of jewelers made a proposal concerning the exhibition of Coco Chanel. It was a very surprising offer because Coco Chanel was a real defender of costume jewelry. The point was that costume jewelry has been considered to be vulgar and insipid ornaments of women of bohemia at that time. However, Chanel had to agree. The exhibition of Chanel Jewelry created quite a stir not only because Chanel jewelry was charmingly beautiful but because at that time it was unique and exotic. In spite of the exhibition's success, Coco Chanel didn't stop producing her favorite costume jewelry. Researchers of Chanel's life have considered that this designer has created many of the masterpieces of the collection that were inspired by her new love Pol Yrib. He was an actor who managed to influence significantly the creative work of Coco Chanel.
In her work the great designer has made one more impossible thing. Coco Chanel suggested that women wear jewelry with their sweaters. At that time it was still an unprecedented challenge, but that style has become fashionable and is still popular today.
Along with Chanel jewelry, Chanel timepieces are still very popular and are in great favor and deserve respect. The first step in the production of Chanel timepieces was made in a small workshop in La Chaux De Fonds. What they did was just assemble clockworks. A big and solid manufacturer of timepieces was started in 1987. That year was the start of the production of Chanel timepieces in the world of timepieces.
Today there are five watch collections which include 65 various models of timepieces. The first collection of Chanel timepieces were introduced in 1987. The collection was given a very symbolic name. It was called the Premiere Collection. Chanel's first collection of time pieces featured an octagonal shaped case with the silhouette which remains the Vandom Square which was a favorite place of Coco Chanel in Paris, France.
The wonderful woman that could make everything wonderful that her hands touched was very lonely. Until the end of her life she worked much and created but she died in a hotel all alone surrounded by dresses, suits, and jewelry. She lived a lonely life despite her numerous and short term romances. Her work was her only real love by creating new, surprising, and challenging imagines for all women.
