From a not-so-secret fling with a Russian Grand Duke to dedicating her 1922 collection’s aesthetics and techniques to Russia, Gabrielle Chanel’s encounters with it citizens and culture was more than just a social call. Through the Le Paris Russe de Chanel collection, the house explores this personal chapter of the designer “who loved deeply and lived passionately.”
