CHANEL MASSIVE CAMELLIA FLOWER VINTAGE GILT EARRINGS PRISTINE.
These spectacular oversized golden Camellia flower blooms are a true masterpiece. The Camélia theme runs throughout CHANEL’S history. Never was the flower elevated to such a golden moment in both scale and detail.
Gabrielle Chanel was seduced by the camellia. A flower of simplicity and purity with no fragrance nor thorns, it was akin to the ethos of Mademoiselle. She preferred the camellia’s sobriety and geometric roundedness, with a classic and consistent ordering of the petals, intelligible yet beautiful, like the woman that she was.
In 1913, on the beach of Étretat, France, Coco Chanel was photographed with a camellia fastened to her waistband – a white camellia that became one of her emblems. With her taste for opposites, she would wear it in stark contrast against a little black dress. Soon, it would adorn clothes, belts, bags, shoes, and jewelry transcending its status as a flower to become the icon of CHANEL. Collection 1989 Autumn Winter
