Arty-Fact: Chanel No. 5, printed under the auspices of the estate of Andy Warhol, comes from the artist's Ads Portfolio.
Created by Ernest Beaux for Coco Chanel in 1921, Chanel No. 5 became synonymous with sophistication and luxury, two qualities Andy Warhol hoped to instil in his work.
Today, Chanel perfume remains a household name, just as it was during the Warhol era. In 1997, Chanel revisited the image, with the Warhol Foundation's permission, for use in an advertising campaign that year. The rich blue, red, gold, and green hues bring this simple rectangular bottle to life. The Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle stands alone as an iconic design.
Many of these posters appeared on buses and public transportation throughout Paris. It is not known how many were printed or how many remain today, but this gorgeous suite of four French vintage posters remains highly desirable.
