A collector’s dream, revealing Jean-Paul Goude’s previously unseen drawings and sketches for the iconic perfume campaigns he created for Chanel.
For the first time, Chanel and Jean-Paul Goude reveal the drawings, collages, and sketches that inspired Goude’s iconic advertising campaigns for Chanel’s world- famous fragrances, from E´goi¨ste and Coco to Chanel No. 5.
Inspired by a small gold birdcage in Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, Goude famously cast a young Vanessa Paradis as a Chanel Tweetie Pie, swinging on a trapeze to promote Chanel’s Coco perfume. He went on to make Estella Warren the face of his Chanel No. 5 campaign, and he called for the entire facade of a Riviera palace to be built in Rio de Janeiro for the first E´goi¨ste film, before capturing Karl Lagerfeld, Lily-Rose Depp, and the ghost of Coco Chanel herself.
A must-have for Chanel lovers, Goude: The Chanel Sketchbooks also allows creatives and advertising enthusiasts to discover the imagination and creative process at work behind these unforgettable images.
