It’s a little sad how excited I’ve been to share this image with you. This is the famous Coco Chanel quote, “To be irreplaceable, you must be different.” I spotted this in the window of the Chanel jewelry store in the Place Vendôme. See the little pieces of curled gold metal? These were attached to a white wall behind the window, and from afar, it looked like some weird, abstract metal art installation. Come a little closer to the display, and you see a light shining just above it. The shadow cast from the light hitting the curved pieces of metal create the quote. I thought it was the coolest thing I’d seen in a long time.
Truly different, totally irreplaceable. I hope this inspires you today!
