Secrets, buttons and diamonds at Chanel

The new “Mademoiselle Privé de Chanel” watch collection consists of 7 cuffs fastened by a button. It is decorated with a sculpted agate representing the portrait of Gabrielle Chanel, a gold lion’s head, a Byzantine diamond motif or a pearl. The button has always been an essential element in the designer’s vocabulary, omnipresent on tweed jackets, and found at regular intervals on the bottom sleeves and on patch pockets. On these black tweed cuffs with gold or diamond threads, its main function is to conceal a mini dial. Objects of beauty.
