Coco Chanel is back.

For fifteen years the gates of

the Chanel fashion empire

have been closed.

Now, at the age of seventy,

she's returned from

her self-imposed exile

to make an eagerly

anticipated comeback.

The fashion world is holding its breath.

Today, the legendary designer is

unveiling her first collection...

in more than a decade.

Mr. Bouchier?

How will Coco Chanel respond

to today's market...

dominated by designers like Dior?

Coco Chanel is a woman

who dresses women.

I'm sure her collection will reflect that.

And what about-what about

your relationship to Coco Chanel?

She's referred to you

as an old bandit'!

Old bandit?

Old friend, more like.

I hope you enjoy the show.

Thank you. How are you?

Good. Good, good, good.

Ah, hello.


Good to see you.


Aah! How lovely to see you again!

Lovely to see you!


Thank you.


I'll... I'll see you after the show.

Okay, great.



What a pleasure to see you.

How are you?

Very well

Odette. You look beautiful.

Thank you.

How is she?

As you might think,

Though she probably

looks less nervous than you.

Are you coming up?

Uhm... in-in a moment.

They're fighting to get in.

Cocteau, Visconti, Dali:

they're all here.

All your old friends.

Some of my old enemies.

Aunt Coco...

some more telegrams have arrived.

"You will always be

the greatest of them all":

Marlene Dietrich.

"Only Parliament prevents me

from coming there to salute you":

Winston Churchill.

Lift your arm, lift your arm.

No, no.

This isn't working.

Coco, please.

The crowd's getting restless.

Scissors, scissors.


Go, go.

Oh, dear!

This is all rather underwhelming!

No. It was a fiasco.

I know.

They had their knives out.

I'm so sorry, Coco.

Marc, I do not need...

your condolences, please.

Maybe it could have been avoided.

Coco. Please, try not to be...


Don't you worry.

I've suffered rejection before,

as you well know.

Even when I was still being

called Gabrielle.

Let me finish this.


You have to promise me something.

Take care of Julia.

You are stronger than her.

Of course.

Gabrielle, Julie! Hurry up!

I wish you could stay with us.

I know you do, Adrienne.

You see, the situation is that...

I can't quite afford to pay.

I understand.

Once I'm established in America,

I'll be back to collect you.

Please let us come with you.

I'll be back soon.


I promise.

Turn around.

Please... turn around.

Le Combat says:

"Coco Chanel is stuck in the past".

"A collection for grannies",

... the Express.

What did they know.

Well, they certainly weren't

wearing kid gloves...

Ah! Please.

Spare me the infamous...

'Chanel silence'.

Let them write what they choose.

I know what women want.

I admire your confidence.

But... maybe... times have changed.

And now we've lost...

millions of Francs.

Perhaps you've lost faith

in me too, Marc...

Alright, let's be honest.

I warned you of the risks,

... and of course... you insisted.

Let's hope... that this...

unmitigated disaster doesn't affect

perfume sales, because if it does...

then that's going to be the final straw.

You have nothing more to add?


What if they are right after all?

What if I am...

just a relic from the past?

Yes! Yes!

Little darling, little darling,

little candy.

Where did you go?

Why did you run away?

I thought I saw our father!

But I was wrong.

He's in America.

I'm afraid he'll never

come back.

Good morning! Up you get!

Come, come, come on! Up you go.

Today is your eighteenth birthday.
