Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel Oiseau Vibrant

Chanel 2016

Women's

An exploration of Gabrielle Chanel's private world, the Mademoiselle Privé collection is joined by five unique pieces, inspired by the coromandel lacquer screens in her apartments. The refinement of birds, flowers and branches is rendered in deftly sculpted, engraved and oxidized gold, against a backdrop of onyx. Each dial takes a full three weeks to complete. Already a feat of immense artistic skill, Chanel has introduced the added complexity of an effet trembleur, as the birds are mounted on an invisible spring which causes them to tremble at each movement of the wrist. This astonishingly lifelike scene is framed by an elegant beige gold case, circled by diamonds.
