Paul Iribe was a French illustrator, and designer in the decorative arts. He worked in Hollywood during the Twenties and was Coco Chanel's lover.
Iribe studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and the College Rollin.
Iribe provided illustrations for the popular L'Assiette au Beurre and contributed drawings and caricatures for satirical papers such as Le Rire, Le Sourire, and La Baïonnette.
He was one of a talented group of like illustrators including George Barbier, George Lepape, George Martin, and Pierre Brissaud.
Iribe’s work was primarily distinguished by the illustrations he executed for style journals such as La Gazette du Bon Ton where his charming vignettes of the latest modes helped promote the designs of couturiers such as Paul Poiret. He collaborated with Coco Chanel in the design of extravagant jewelry pieces commissioned by the International Guild of Diamond Merchants.
Iribe was recruited for design work by film director Cecil B. DeMille. They were ideally paired collaborators sharing a penchant for luxury replete with all the entailing visual drama. DeMille allowed Iribe complete creative freedom, his depiction of Egypt for "The Ten Commandments,” was not a Biblical rendition but pure Hollywood fantasy.
