Gabrielle Chanel was a passionate admirer of Russia, and that passion has long been a key part of her work. Her early 1920s collections included her take on the roubachka, a man’s tunic traditionally worn by Russian peasants, transformed by Chanel with a cinched waist and beautifully embroidered shoulders. Those embroidered motifs have further inspired this incandescent diamond and pearl bracelet from the exceptional Le Paris Russe collection.
