No. 5 Culture Chanel:
In No. 5 Culture Chanel, Jean-Louis Froment pays homage to the legendary Gabrielle Chanel and her most iconic fragrance. Designed to complement the exhibit "5 Culture Chanel" at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Froment's tome traces Mademoiselle Chanel's artistic influences and establishes Chanel No. 5's integral role in the avant-garde art of the early 20th century. Lavishly designed with stunning photographs and illustrations, this extremely luxurious volume offers a glimpse into both the storied Chanel house and the artistic landscape of Paris in the 1920s.
