For nearly a century, for all the major names in Haute Couture, Lesage has embroidered highly elaborate motifs requiring many hours of work and great virtuosity. The exquisite motif on this highly poetic dial is the fruit of a long tradition. Against a striking backdrop of fabric dial, natural pearls, knotted and chain stitching come together to form a motif of a rare poetry. Numerous technics of embroideries are needed to create this sumptuous dial : The petals' outline of the camellias gives the illusion that a chain frames the flowers : they are made with metallic threads embroidered with a Luneville hook. Straight points are embroidered with bright white silk threads to form the inner petals of this poetic model, giving depth to the dial. The dial is unique, revealing the embroiderer’s freedom of movement throughout her patient creative work. Since the birth of the House, exceptional savoir-faire has always been at the heart of CHANEL creations. MADEMOISELLE PRIVE collection pays tribute to watchmaking arts and skills such as enamelling, engraving, setting and marquetry, but also to the artistic crafts of Couture. To enhance these exceptional timepieces, CHANEL has called on the services of Maison Lesage, the guardians of a rare and precious expertise of embroideries. Mademoiselle Chanel loved the delicate elegance and subtle milky colour of the camellia, making it her favourite flower. This symbolic flower is gracefully reinterpreted in this unique model. Fruit of an exquisite collaboration with Maison Lesage, the camellias are embroidered here with silk and metallic threads and natural pearls. This exceptional piece is hand-stitched in a highly delicate display of precision and refinement.
