Mademoiselle Chanel had a great love for pearls. Wearing them constantly and to a variety of occasions, even with sportswear or a sweater paired with mens’ trousers – pearls were a way to reveal her most feminine side not matter what she was dressed. “Les Perles de Chanel” collection showcases one of the pivotal themes of the Chanel brand. A select number of items were on display in the Chanel boutique in The Dubai Mall after a tour in the world capitals of Tapei and Hong Kong, among other locations.
