In celebration of the Chanel retrospective Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto at the National Gallery of Victoria, we’ve put together the ultimate Francophile trip to Melbourne for one lucky Broadsheet reader and their guest.
The prize includes flights for two from your nearest capital city and a night’s luxury accommodation at Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street, valued at $430. Dinner is courtesy of Bar Margaux (valued at $250) on Lonsdale Street, a 15-minute city stroll from your hotel. Melbourne’s take on a New York take on a Parisian bar, it’s the latest venture from the team behind Melbourne favourites The Everleigh and Heartbreaker. For an entrée you might order soupe à l’oignon or escargot (the magic ingredient is Pernod butter), followed by a classic steak tartare and, finally, a light crème brûlée.

After you’ve repaired to the Hilton, it’s just a short trip to the NGV courtesy of free hotel transfers with Mercedes-Benz, valued at $250. The blockbuster exhibition de jour is Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto, featuring more than 100 garments from the renowned French couturière better known as Coco. When you attend NGV Friday Nights (two tickets, valued at $70), you can explore the exhibition after hours, plus be entertained by local DJ sets from acts such as Afrodisiac, Simona Castricum and Banoffee. Tickle a glass of Pommery Champagne, then it’s back in the Benz to Chez Hilton. Et voila!
