A Fashionable Debut: Justine Picardie on Coco Chanel

6 January 2016 at PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi

Kicking off PULSE’s debut line-up in 2016, PER AQUUM was delighted to host Justine Picardie, Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country, UK, for an exclusive meet-the-author event. Justine has two loves – fashion and the written word. As the bestselling author of four books, Justine is the literary genius behind the widely acclaimed biography Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life.

Guests enjoyed the opportunity to share an intimate moment with Justine in our luxurious island home, where she revealed secrets unearthed during her research on Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel. Continuing the theme, they were also treated to cinema under the stars with a viewing of the movie ‘Coco Before Chanel’ starring the beguiling Audrey Tautou.

PER AQUUM’s first ever PULSE experience offered captivating insight from one of the industry’s leading influencers into the links between fashion and art – and the emotional resonance of fashion in all our lives.

Revisiting the moment, Justine shared her experience of our ‘Waking Dream’ in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. See the dream in her own words:
