A peek at Chanel’s ‘Mademoiselle Prive’ exhibition
Chanel is set to take center stage in London this autumn, with the opening of a new exhibition at the city’s prestigious Saatchi Gallery.
London’s Saatchi Gallery is set to launch its three-week “Mademoiselle Privé” exhibition, which will take visitors through the storied history of the French fashion house Chanel, touching on fashion, fragrance, jewelry and the famous couturiers behind it all.
Running October 13 through November 1, “Mademoiselle Privé” will cover Chanel both with Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld at the helm.
It will span the brand’s long and celebrated relationship with couture as well as the story behind its legendary Chanel No. 5 perfume.
Another focus of the show will be the 1932 haute joaillerie collection, Bijoux de Diamants, which was designed by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and reissued by Karl Lagerfeld for the autumn/winter 2015 couture show in Paris earlier this year. For this section of the show, Karl Lagerfeld has photographed celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, Vanessa Paradis, Keira Knightley, Stella Tennant and Julianne Moore.
“Audacity, freedom and innovation” are said to be the essential elements of Chanel and will be at the forefront throughout the exhibition.
The show will be installed on all three floors of the venue.
In addition, daily workshops throughout its duration will reveal more about Chanel craftsmanship, teaching visitors how to embroider and work with feathers, while an olfactive workshop will offer insight into the six key elements of Chanel No. 5.
