Red Savannah launched a new series called In the Footsteps of…, which debuts itineraries of well-known figures, the first being Coco Chanel. As Chanel No. 5 celebrates its 102nd anniversary this year, the travel company invites fashion lovers, history enthusiasts and admirers of Coco Chanel to experience the new itinerary, In the Footsteps of Coco Chanel. The experience allows travelers to step into the remarkable life of one of most iconic figures in the fashion world.
The unique journey follows the tale of Coco’s transition from orphan to couturier through the highs and lows of the 20th century while highlighting the innovative role she played in the revolution of women’s clothing.
Highlights of the new itinerary include:
- Visiting the location of Chanel’s most iconic runway shows
- Experiencing the château where Coco spent her summers and may have even inspired the famed logo
- Discovering the south of France and stay in the same location where Coco vacationed throughout the 1920s and 30s
- Exploring Deauville, the location of Coco’s first boutique
- Enjoying tea at Chanel’s favorite café
- Staying on Rue Cambon, steps away from the original Parisian Chanel boutique, where the designer popularized the chic striped mariniere sweater for women
- Strolling through the halls of the famed hotel Coco called home
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
