The beautiful Sous le Signe du Lion collection fully expresses the breadth and extent of Chanel jewellery's creativity and know-how.

Born a Leo on the 19th of August, 1883, Gabrielle Chanel surrounded herself with models of the animal, as lions in wood, silver, bronze or alabaster decorated her apartment at 31 rue Cambon – in turn becoming the spirit of Chanel.

The house's founder was greatly attached to signs, symbols and numbers, and loved to surround herself with all kinds of objects and lucky charms, making the lion a timeless inspiration for Chanel.

Mademoiselle Chanel once said, "August 19th is my birthday. I was born under the sign of Leo. I am a Leo and, like a lion, I use my claws to prevent people from doing me harm, but, believe me, I suffer more from scratching than from being scratched."
