Catalogue Note

Inscribed to the interior 'Exemplaire unique crée pour le M.D.G.A.V Paris Septembre 1989'.

Robert Goossens , or 'Monsieur Bijou', was a French jeweller who worked closely with major fashion houses such as Dior, Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent and began collaborating with Coco Chanel in 1953, creating jewellery to complement her fashion designs. After Coco Chanel's death, he collaborated with her successor Karl Lagerfeld throughout the 1980s and 90s, and the company was acquired by Chanel in 2005 where it continues to be run by the Goossens family.
