Chanel No. 5 inspired by Stravinsky?
by Christie Connolley
While the audience in Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées descended into a riot over Stravinsky’s premier of the Rite of Spring on May 29, 1913, one member of the audience was simply delighted.
Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, a film starring Anna Mouglalis and Mads Mikkelsen and directed by Jan Kounen premiered in Paris on December 30, 2009. The film about the brief, but passionate love affair between the composer and the style icon was selected as the closing film of the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
