Coco Chanel is known globally as the indelible French designer who introduced the “little black dress,” Chanel No.5, and revolutionized the luxury fashion industry — but she is so much more than that. Chanel is an icon, a true legend of her own making. Her influence on the fashion world has stood the test of time, and her legacy continues to flourish through the House of Chanel, the renowned fashion brand she founded in 1910. Decades after her passing in 1971, her acclaimed contributions to the industry remain influential and celebrated today.

As Chanel No.5 (Marilyn Monroe’s signature fragrance), celebrates its 103rd anniversary in 2024, fashion aficionados, historians, and Chanel connoisseurs alike will have the opportunity to experience the history of Chanel, through her very own eyes. Luxury travel company Red Savannah is now offering a complete travel package entitled “In the Footsteps of Coco Chanel” to take travelers through the full itinerary of the fashion designer’s extraordinary life. This exclusive adventure tracks the tale of Chanel’s transition from orphan to couturier during the 20th century, featuring the innovation she produced within the women’s clothing sector of the luxury fashion industry. 

Summer time on Deauville beach Marie-Anaïs Thierry Large

Voyagers will begin their journey in the charming region of Deauville, Normandy, where Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel opened her first-ever boutique in 1913. This destination marked the start of simple, brave designs that became iconic: the famed marinière striped shirt and jersey fabric. Characterized by comfort and elegance, her approach to fashion freed women from the constraints of corsets, promoting a more relaxed and functional style. The package also includes the option to attend a polo match or races at Deauville’s famed racecourse, beloved by Normandy’s haute société.

The second phase of the itinerary takes visitors to the very heart of Paris, where they will reside mere steps away from the historical building at 31 rue Cambon. The 31 building maintains the original boutique, salon, and workshop that comprise Chanel’s Couture House, a layout that remains identical to this day. Travelers will then continue their excursion in the footsteps of Chanel to the South of France, staying in the same idyllic location where Chanel vacationed throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
