Perfume Presentation, No. 5, 1921
The Chanel No. 5 presentation was conceived to be as simple and straightforward as possible. In pairing an unadorned clear glass vessel with a plain polished steel case they produced one of the most innovative and avant-garde designs of the day, much like the shapes and combinations for Chanel’s fashion.
