Yves Saint Laurent Square


Continue along the rue Eugène Colas to reach this mini-square full of architectural history. Inspired by the Petit Trianon of Versailles, the casino built in 1912 is a legendary place. Since its inauguration by Nijinsky and the Ballets Russes, its Italian theater has hosted, among other things, the programming of the City's Cultural Season. At the opposite corner, the Normandy Barrière hotel offers its entrance on the “Norman Court” side. Coco Chanel opened its first boutique there in 1913, and invented Chanel beige in reference to the wet sand of the beach.
