Notre Dame is the lighthouse and symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 to celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution.

  • Paris' Palais Galliera reopens its doors with exhibition on Gabrielle Chanel

    Paris, Sep 30 (EFE) .- (Camera: María Díaz Valderrama) Gabrielle Chanel, the creator of the French brand that bears her name, is much more than a celebrity and iconic garments, something the Palais Galliera in Paris, which is reopening its doors on Thursday after two years of restoration, shows with the first retrospective dedicated to the work of the stylist. More than 350 pieces from the collections of the Parisian museum, and of the Chanel archives, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the fashion museum in Santiago de Chile or the MoMu in Antwerp have served to carry out this exhibition, which recovers the more than 60 years of the professional life of "Coco" Chanel (1883-1971).FOOTAGE OF THE EXHIBITION.SOUNDBITES OF CURATOR AND PALAIS GALLIERA DIRECTOR MIREN ARZALLUZ.Translation:"We quickly realised that there was deep knowledge, from the general public, not just specialists, of what the life of Gabrielle Chanel was. There are up to 100 biographies published about Chanel, apart from films, documentaries and articles that talk fundamentally about her private life. It's not that her work wasn't known or nobody had spoken about it, but it was more of a superficial knowledge that a lot of time was a cliche, they spoke mostly about the same things.""We realised that there was a more complex and sophisticated Chanel that went beyond what we knew, even specialists. That's what we wanted to do, we focused on her work, which is almost the entire 20th century, because she started in the 20s and she worked until '71. Understanding why she has her own place in the world of fashion and haute couture, why her style is timeless, which principles guided her work and why today she's still relevant in today's fashion."
