Chanel Bois des Iles

This iconic ad from 1951 was created to advertise the Chanel fragrance ‘bois de iles’ or ‘island forests’. This fragrance for women was released in 1926, created by master perfumer Ernest Beaux with the help of legendary Coco Chanel. The fragrance was autumnal, with the odour of dark woods . Bois de Iles was the first woody fragrance for women, perhaps representative of Coco Chanel’s modern, unconventional approach to femininity. The Chanel bottle is a masterpiece of Art Deco simplicity.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
