Explanation:
Celine has designed a collection based on their logo. The logo has the letters CC worked into the links of a chain. You can see the logo in the links of the chain on the watch at the first web site listed and on the blouse shown at the second web site. Given that they are referring to the links as a chain, I would use "maillons."

CELINE SOIGNE SON DOUBLE C
La chaîne blason, maillon fort de Celine
Trente-cinq ans après cet heureux « coup de la panne », le blason Celine est célébré à travers une collection capsule de prêt-à-porter et d’accessoires. Une solution de facilité à l’heure où le luxe hésite souvent entre logo et no logo ? « Je n’aime pas utiliser un logo au premier degré, se justifie Ivana Omazic. Selon moi, plus on l’utilise de manière voyante et sans prendre vraiment de recul, moins le résultat sera beau et sophistiqué. Pour cette collection, j’ai voulu jouer avec le blason comme d’un simple élément graphique, un motif en détail dans la doublure d’un trench, sur la ceinture d’une jupe, etc. Une sorte de symbole subtil, un code secret de notre marque. »
