Deeply in love with the Duke of Westminster, Gabrielle Chanel discovered the charms of heavy woolly tartan fabrics in the 1920s thanks to him. This fabric, with its unique weaving, is said to derive its name from the River Tweed, which separates Scotland from England and where the wool was abundantly rinsed before being used. The designer’s big idea was to use it to build a women’s wardrobe out of a woollen cloth that had so far been reserved for men. Chanel extends the “tweed experience” with a jewelry collection directly inspired by these colorful weaves. With an impressive rendering and a proposal as rich as a cloakroom (9 collections!), Place Vendôme feels more warmly wrapped up than ever.
