Throughout her life, Gabrielle Chanel was close to the greatest artists of her time, from Jean Cocteau and Pierre Reverdy, to Picasso, Dali, and Stravinsky. The creative heritage of the House of Chanel has continued throughout the decades, from Gabrielle Chanel to Karl Lagerfeld, in the form of a dialogue established between artists and authors. The impact of these individuals and others on Chanel's designs is explored in detail through paintings, sketches, letters, documents, and rare archival photographs. Moving from the little black dress to the women's suit to Chanel No. 5, Culture Chanel explores the bold path of a brand that has always known how to express the essence of its times.
