In a rst for Chanel, the leg­endary clear-glass per­fume ask de­signed by Made­moi­selle Chanel is don­ning a ery cloak of red. For this Christ­mas, Chanel’s lim­ited edi­tion No.5 Eau de Par­fum and No.5 Eau de Toi­lette will ap­pear in red glass. De­signed in 1921, the clear rec­tan­gu­lar bot­tle with sim­ple, geo­met­ric lines and a facetted stop­per soon be­came a sym­bol of a mod­ern aes­thetic. Red, ac­cord­ing to Made­moi­selle Chanel, is “the colour of life, the colour of blood.” Red prom­ises com­mit­ment and self-as­ser­tion, an in­car­na­tion of all the bold­ness, free­dom and strength of a woman who forged her own des­tiny. Whether crim­son, gar­net or ruby, teamed with vel­vet, tweed or chi on, for a suit or a cloak, red al­ways made a pow­er­ful and fem­i­nine state­ment in Made­moi­selle Chanel’s de­signs. The No.5 Eau de Par­fum Red Edi­tion (100ml), RRP €150 (lim­ited edi­tion)
