Red — once described by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel as the "colour of life, the colour of blood" — is used widely in the French fashion house’s garments, accessories jewellery and make-up.

Created by Mademoiselle Chanel almost 100 years ago — in 1921, to be precise — the rectangular Chanel N°5 bottle with its faceted stopper has spanned the ages with only minor modifications made to its iconic silhouette over the years.

The French fashion house has given its "N°5 L’Eau" Eau de Toilette and "N°5" Eau de Parfum a festive makeover with red-tinted glass bottles. These are joined by an exceptional 900ml-format red Baccarat crystal version of the legendary bottle for the brand’s "N°5 Grand Extrait" — a limited edition with 55 numbered pieces available worldwide.

The 100ml N°5 Red Edition Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum ($160), and the 900ml Baccarat crystal N°5 Limited Edition Grand Extrait ($30,000) are exclusive to www.chanel.com from this week, before landing in stores from November 2.

In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to (...)
