The camellia, Chanel's emblematic flower

The camellia, Chanel's emblematic flower

The origins of Camélia Chanel

In 1923, Coco Chanel noticed that dandies liked to wear this flower from Asia in their buttonholes. She transforms it into a men's accessory and also wears it on one of the dresses she has created, choosing to pin it to the belt, the collar, a hat pick... It is also said that Coco Chanel, from the age of 13 , was fascinated by "La Dame aux Camélias" played by Sarah Bernhardt. Very quickly, the camellia became the emblematic flower of the House...


The infinite variations of the Camélia by Chanel

The flower comes in a Camélia ring, white or black, but also engraved, stylized, paved with diamonds or colored stones when we evoke the pink or red camellia. It is also found on necklaces, long necklaces, earrings or brooches, and even on Chanel watches. In a couture version, we find it spectacularly embroidered on a wedding dress designed by Karl Lagerfeld.   

“Chanel's camellia is an inspiration”...


Camellia symbols

The camellia, symbol of perfection and elegance in Japan, is, in the language of flowers, the recognition of a talent, admiration, or loyalty. To offer a jewel from the Camélia Chanel collection is therefore to offer a message loaded with positivity and love!
