“I have always been in love with Chanel. For me a Chanel bag is a bit like a piece of jewellery, it is something you can pass on for generations. When I was pregnant with my son, my mother gave me this little blue Chanel bag as a present. She wanted me to have it, because I was having a baby boy and because she said it had just the right size to fit a pacifier for when I would be out strolling with my son. It is very special to me since every time I look at it, it reminds me of my son and my mother – two very important people in my life.”
