Revisiting Gabrielle Chanel’s iconic love for camellia, Chanel has now bottled up the timeless inspiration of its red variant in the form of No.1 de Chanel, a new collection of products, which includes skincare, make-up and a fragrance mist. But like everything that the iconic brand does, No.1 de Chanel is also testament of Chanel’s deep labour in research and design.
