CHANEL x MARILYN
Marilyn Monroe's love affair with Chanel No. 5 perfume is well known. To celebrate this romance, Chanel is releasing new print and television campaigns due to launch in December, centering around the late actress's famous declaration that she wore nothing in bed but a few drops of Chanel No.5, after the fashion house discovered an unreleased recording capturing Monroe's original words:
"You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: 'What do you wear to bed? A pyjama top? The bottoms of the pyjamas? A nightgown?' So I said: 'Chanel No.5', because it's the truth," said Monroe in the 1960 recording. "And yet, I don't want to say 'nude'. But it's the truth!"
