Chanel’s Camellias ~ Flowers In Bloom

chanel camellia flower black and white

“The camellia, a flower of stark simplicity and pure white, could not fail to charm Mademoiselle Chanel. It formed part of her private world: [in her apartment] scattered on Coromandel screens, it also appears in chandeliers or in bouquets with rock-crystal.

Prior to being the flower associated with demimondaines or dandies, the camellia symbolized purity and longevity in Asia. Gabrielle [Coco] Chanel made it a symbol of her designs, featuring it here and there in every item of a woman’s wardrobe.” ~ quoted from Chanel News
