CHANEL, 31 RUE CAMBON, PARIS


Yesterday we visited the house of Chanel. Rather, the first-floor boutique. Coco Chanel opened Fashion House in 1910. There are four floors and garden on the roof.The Chanel store is at street level, haute couture dressing rooms are on the second floor, her apartment is on the third, and workshop is on the fourth. Chanel was indeed living at the Ritz Apartment, within walking distance at Rue Cambon, but She had an apartment also in fashion house. There is Atelier  on the fourth floor ,where Karl Lagerfeld now does most of his Chanel work .Just knowing that Coco herself used to work away in the floors above (and now Karl) adds a special something to the boutique experience.
I am very excited about being there! I bought  perfume and went to sit in a cafe across the street.There I talked to cafe waiter and he said that he is seeing  Karl very  often and sometimes He drinks a coffee here. 

אתמול ביקרנו בבית של שאנליותר נכון בבוטיקקוקו שאנל פתחה בית אופנה שאנל ב1910. בית הוא בית קומות וגינה על הגגבוטיק בקומת קרקעאופנה עילית הקומה שנייהדירה בקומה שלישיתואמנם שאנל הייתה גרה במלון ריץ', שבמרחק הליכה מרחוב קמבוןאבל הייתה לה דירה גם בבית אופנהסטודיו נמצא בקומה רביעית שבו קארל לגרפלד עכשיו עושה את רוב העבודהרק הידיעה עצמה שקוקו עצמה נהגה לעבוד בקומה מעל (ועכשיו קארלמוסיפה הרבה לבוטיק.
אני מאוד התרגשתי מלהיות שםלמזכרת קניתי לי בושם והלכנו לשבת בבית קפה ממול.בבית קפה דיברתי עם המלצר והוא אמר שרואה את קארל לעתים קרובות ולפעים הוא שותה קפה בבית קפה הזה.
