Cremerie de Paris has a long history .... époque first Cremerie
The people that work in today's Cremerie de Paris (expo center for Very Beautiful Brands)
never had the chance to meet Coco Chanel in person ....
the borders of time have seperated us.
Coco Chanel died already 40 years ago, 1971, January 10.
Souvenirs of a friend of Chanel
But in 1999 destiny has send a close friend of Coco Chanel,
to the Cremerie de Paris at the time it was an Internet Cafe.
The Lady was very unusual ...
she was already almost 100 years old (at the time we did not know her real age)
but she was full of life
and so beautiful everybody turned around whenever she arrived at the cafe.
She had heared about the "phenomenon Internet"
and she wanted to have a little idea about it.
... and of course she was very amused to tell "old people"
(20, 30, 40 years younger than her)
that she used to surf on the net ...
The name of the Lady was Aimée de Heeren,
once the "secret first Lady" of Brazil.
She had to leave her country in 1938
and she knew Coco Chanel since that time ...
One day, after an internet lesson at the Cybercafe,
the editor of this article
showed the beautiful courtyard of our Hotel de Villeroy
to Aimée de Heeren ...
but Aimée already knew it
she had been there ...
about 40 years before,
in the 1960s ....
She was accompanied by a woman that was very lonely
and that entered history
as one of the most famous fashion designers of all times.
Late evening walks around Paris
Aimée de Heeren enjoyed to go on long evening walks
around Paris and she was always
looking for a friend to keep company ...
Decades later Aimée de Heeren made the same kind of long evening walks
