The
Coromandel
Legend

The famed love affair which inspired a lifelong infatuation with an object – Coromandel screens.

Scenes of flora and fauna, landscapes of places afar, etched into Chinese lacquer find life anew as the inspiration behind head designer Patrice Laguereau’s 10th anniversary high jewelry collection for Chanel.

Special thank you to the Patrimoine de Chanel.

It is here that we are reminded 
that while she died a legend, 
she lived very much as a woman — 
creating, collecting, defying, loving.

Navigating Coromandel:

Users have the option to either: swap chapters by hovering and choosing the desired section which appears below the storybook icon; or by entering the full-screen navigation which provides them with clear, more detailed chapter titles

Once inside a chapter, the user is taken through the story horizontally, meant to mimic the panels of the Coromandel screens.
