Chopard, a Name in History

When Paul Andre Chopard was forced to sell his 100years family watch business because none of his sons were interested in taking over the company, the Scheufele family, the new owners of the Chopard business saw numerous ways of making a name and a profit with Chopard. And so, the company made a statement in luxury products : watches and jewellery. You can find Chopard related to charity (Jose Carreras Foundation, Prince Charles Foundation, Sabrina Foundation, Alp Action) or special events (Film Festivals, Mille Miglia- The Race, Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar Party, ‘White Tie and Tiara Ball).

Chanel And Claudia Schiffer

So this means that ‘heroin chic’ years are finally over? Karl Lagerfeld chose a comeback of the legend image of Chanel – Claudia Schiffer, 20 years after she became the worlds first supermodel when he first picked her to represent Chanel. It seems the legendary Lagerfeld took personal care of the photo shoot in St Tropez where the 37-year-old mother of two Claudia Schiffer posed in several outfits for the spring Chanel collection.

‘Claudia is part of another world, another fashion, another spirit, another time’ Lagerfeld said about 20 years ago. Maybe that’s what pushed him back to her?
