Petal Power

   Chanel loved her camellias, and she started using them in her collections as far back as 1922. Since then they have been an enduring symbol of her House. They are still made using a technique developed in the late 19th century. Precision is key, and each camellia goes through many stages, one being shaped over a white-hot ball. As Chanel stated it best, “A lot of serious work goes into successful frivolity”. Our largest camellia measures 5.5″ (black Sold) and our smallest measures 3″ (gingham). (Cream, small white and gingham, and blush, all sold) Please contact us for more details.
