  4. Re: Coco Chanel = Hitler? ( And is this ad real? )

    I'll keep you posted. I received a short note from their communications department in France, they forwarded my question and I'll be hearing from them soon.
  5. Re: Coco Chanel = Hitler? ( And is this ad real? )

    There's nothing wrong with endlessly speculating about this, but it's leading us nowhere. I sent an inquiry about the video to Chanel in France.
  6. Re: Coco Chanel = Hitler?

    I don't think Chanel has anything to do with this video. Aside from other things, you can tell from the historical inaccuracy at the end: No.5 was launched in 1921, not 1923.
