    Wheat, as a universal symbol of prosperity and abundance, occupies a special place in Coco Chanel’s heart. It harks back to her working class roots, where harvest time coincided with her birthday in August, as well as her few happy childhood memories in the wheat fields of southwestern France with her father. Her apartment in Rue Cambon was also adorned with a bronze wheat table made by Robert Goossens.

    象徵豐饒和繁榮的麥穗在香奈兒創辦人Coco Chanel心中佔有特別位置。麥穗令人聯想到的收成季節剛好是Chanel女士的生日月份,一片金黃的麥田也屬於她在法國西南部的兒時回憶, 讓她想起與父親的短暫歡樂時光。此外, 在她位於巴黎的公寓中, 亦擺放了一張以銅打造的麥穗大桌子, 由Robert Goossens特別為她製作。
