Archival Video Footage of Coco Chanel’s 1932 Diamond Exhibit

Discovered by the CHANEL Direction du Patrimoine in the Pathé-Gaumont cinematographic archives, this film presents the “Bijoux de Diamants” exhibit held from November 7th-19th, 1932 at Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment 29 Faubourg Saint Honoré in Paris. Broadcasted before the feature movies in every French cinema, it was a prominent event in French news in November 1932.

I love seeing the archival footage of the original exhibit in Coco Chanel’s own home!
