Chanel | The Destinations Part One

Chanel has released The Destinations, a three-part series that explores the late Gabrielle Chanel’s life as well as how the cities of Deauville, Biarritz, and Venice led to the famous luxury brand. The series allows fans of Chanel an intimate look into the various influences that shaped both Gabrielle and as a result, the brand.

Part one of the series, which focuses on Gabrielle’s time in Deauville, successfully immortalizes her through a historical anecdote. Through the careful manipulation of archival footage, this series can be considered a work of art through, for example, the scratched footage, which lends to the old-school, nostalgic feel that the series gives off.
