Chanel is one of the oldest and most venerable fashion houses in France. Its logo is emblematic of its approach to fashion: simple, no-nonsense, chic, understated, clear.
The story of the company's founder Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel - even before she founded the company - was so interesting that a film has been made about it. What happened after she started building up her business with a new vision of women's clothing, aided by money provided by her lover, had become legendary.
Indeed, legend is a word that suits Chanel. Legendary names associated with it (Marilyn Monroe), legendary creations (Chanel N°5), a legendary story about how she did or didn't carry a message from the Nazis to the English during the Second World War and a legendary designer that has been working for the company since the early eighties, helping to push the brand into the 21st Century: Karl Lagerfeld.
If you want to experience part of the legend, try out the Chanel boutique on avenue Montaigne.
At the heart of the golden triangle, the Kambodgia restaurant invites you on a gastronomic journey to Cambodia and Asia, in an elegant, contemporary setting combining sophisticated lighting and Cambodian artifacts. Dishes focus on quality and authenticity: the chef reinterprets traditional recipes using organic products (nems, rolls, grilled chicken, ginger fish, shrimp….).
