Inside Chanel - Chapter 19: The Time of Chanel

In the 19th instalment of the Inside Chanel films, the storied couture House celebrates Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s unique perception and relationship to time.

Called Chapter 19: The Time of Chanel, the short animated film celebrates Gabrielle Chanel’s love for living in the present. “I don’t know how to be anywhere but in the present,” she once said. Her belief that time is both perpetual and fleeting inspired her to blend eras, creating a vanguard style that gracefully straddled the lines between the old and the new, the past and the future.

Always, she wanted to create clothes that inspired women to “be beautiful, very beautiful and free to march to their own beat.”

This film is the latest chapter in the Inside Chanel series of films that explore the story of the House, its inimitable founder, Gabrielle Chanel, the iconic creations and motifs that generated a legend and built the House of Chanel.
