The fashion house has bought the property, which the famous designer used to entertain figures including Jean Cocteau and Salvador Dali, before selling it in 1954 following the death of her friend, the Duke of Westminster.  The buyer at that time, American writer and publisher Emery Reves, in turn hosted Winston Churchill and Greta Garbo on the premises.

Chanel has announced that it will refurbish the property in a manner that reflects the luxury brand's "culture and values."
