    "BIJOUX DE DIAMANTS" COLLECTION

    Mademoiselle Privé Seoul displays the "Bijoux de Diamants" collection that was created in 1932 by Gabrielle Chanel. In the original press kit released in the occasion of the first presentation, Gabrielle Chanel stated:
    “In my profession, any means is legitimate, provided it is only used in the true spirit of fashion. I started creating costume jewelry because I felt that it was refreshingly free of arrogance, during a period that tended towards ostentatious displays of luxury. This consideration faded into the background during the economic recession, when, in every sphere of life, there emerged and instinctive desire for authenticity, and amusing trinkets were once again put into their proper perspective. If I have chosen diamonds, it is because they represent the greatest value in the smallest volume. And my love of things that glitter has inspired me to try to combine elegance and fashion through the medium of jewelry.“ Paris, 1932

    PARIS AND HAUTE COUTURE

    PARIS AND HAUTE COUTURE

    Before Haute Couture, there was simply tailoring. In those days, fashion Houses made bespoke outfits to order for their clients. Only in 1858 did the first Haute Couture fashion House open in rue de la Paix, Paris. The system was turned on its head: couturiers no longer made clothes to measure for their clients, but rather sold them their own designs.

    Many such companies opened in the following years, making Paris the city where "the whole world comes for its models". To this day, this uniquely French expertise offers a guarantee of excellence and creativity that has done much to enhance the city's reputation worldwide.

    CHANEL, founded in Biarritz in 1915, and established in Paris in 1918, is the longest-standing Haute Couture label still in operation.

    The Eiffel Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 held to mark the centenary of the French Revolution, and was built in 2 years, 2 months, and 5 days. A showcase of French civil engineering, the tower, standing at 324 meters tall, was seen as a triumph of technical and architectural prowess in the late nineteenth century.
