THE LION….THE SPIRIT OF CHANEL

 

I love big cats...lions, panthers, leopards, I have always been drawn toward their majestic elegance and fierce strength

A long held dream of mine, is to spend a couple of months in Africa helping to protect these stunning creatures...I'll get there one day

CoCo Chanel loved lions too, she saw the lion as a spiritual protector, keeping a statue of a lion ever present beside her cigarettes and scissors

Gabrielle Chanel was born August 19th under Leo, the 5th sign in the zodiac

Both the lion and the number 5 were to become her lucky charms and strength through her extraordinary career

The lion remains a favourite subject of Chanel jewelry and is celebrated here in this beautiful film

The Lion is the spirit of Chanel
