Chanel Pre-Fall 2021 Fashion Show in Paris

The presentation of the new PRE-FALL 2021 collection from the Chanel fashion house took place in one of the most beloved, famous and visited places in France, namely in the Chenonceau Castle. 

This location was not chosen by chance.

In the 16th century, the castle was the residence of Catherine de ' Medici, and biographers of Gabrielle Chanel are very fond of comparing these two heroines in a strange way, finding something in common in their destinies.

Namely, that both were orphans who were educated within the walls of the monastery, loved the color black and admired art. In addition, two letters C are seen in the window bindings, which allegedly became the prototype of the famous Chanel logo.

However, in this matter, many critics are confused in the testimony. As far as I know, it was always believed that it was the stained-glass windows of the abbey in Obazin that suggested the idea for the logo to the orphan Chanel.
