Coco Chanel could not have picked a more fitting emblem for the brand than the elusive Camellia. Seduced by its illicit references, androgynous nature, as well as its purity and perfect symmetry, she turned this humble bud not only into a widely recognised symbol of the maison, but also a powerful symbol for women.
In Hong Kong, the Camellia woman stands confident and powerful, embracing her own uniqueness. She wears these pearl and diamond-encrusted brooches, rings, necklaces and bracelets with flair, from morning 'til evening, much like how Mademoiselle Chanel envisioned her jewellery collections to be worn: with individuality.
