Mademoiselle Privé, two words you must know in the Chanel brand, represent the brand’s unique creative concept. In French, Mademoiselle means ‘Ladies’, means ‘feminine beauty’, Privé means ‘Exclusive’ refers to ‘uniqueness’. The combination of the two forms Chanel’s magical creativity. From wheat ears, rouge, camellia to the brand’s signature double-C logo, from representing minimalist and pure black and white tones, to luxurious details, all are the most expressive elements of Chanel today. In 2017, Chanel used the high-end jewelry “splicing” circular patterns on the dial of the Mademoiselle Privé jewellery watch AUBAZINE, reminiscent of the 7-year orphanage that Chanel lived in as a girl. It is located in the Inside the walls of the Obasi Monastery.
It seems that most people who have influenced the world have experienced a period of ‘pain’. Chanel lived in the abbey abbey for 7 years during her teenage years. This period of time had a profound impact on Chanel. Black and white color was considered a pure and ominous color in the fashion world at that time, and the nuns in the monastery were dressed in black and white clothes, but it made people feel dignified and simple. Therefore, Chanel boldly used black and white as The main color breaks the fashion world’s prejudice against these two colors. Today, black and white Chanel watches are pure and elegant.
Since the advent of the Chanel Mademoiselle Privé series of jewellery watches, the brand’s core of craftsmanship has been interpreted through the unique techniques of the Chanel Art Workshop.
Chanel Mademoiselle Privé jewellery watch AUBAZINE dial at Baselworld 2017, with a white 18K gold case set with 552 brilliant-cut diamonds, the dial set with 136 brilliant-cut diamonds and 32 baguette diamond. Interestingly, the surface of the plate is symmetrical in the center, and a complex and regular geometric pattern is drawn by diamond inlay. This pattern is derived from the pattern on the window of the orphanage where Chanel lived as a girl. The influence of black and white abbey clothing on Ms. Chanel is also presented on the dial graphics intertwined with white gold and partially rhodium-plated.
The outstanding gem setting technique requires craftsmen to select and cut diamonds in full accordance with the pre-designed pattern on the face of the dial, so that it is flat and perfectly embedded in the dial. Here, a large number of diamonds on the case need to have a consistent shape. After the setting is completed, the surface is flat and the curve is natural. This is a great challenge for any craftsman. The dial of the geometric pattern, in addition to using diamonds cut in different shapes, also requires a special setting process, so that the diamond can not only be firmly embedded on the surface, but also form a perfect unity visually. The combination of the invisible setting and the claw setting makes the diamond mosaic pattern and the circular pattern interlocking on the windows of the Abbasin Monastery meet at this moment across time and space.
