Chanel : Mademoiselle Privé pays a visit to London

The magnificent setting of the Saatchi Gallery, located at the heart of London’s Chelsea district, hosted the creations of the CHANEL fashion house and its famous designer Karl Lagerfeld for a temporary exhibition titled “Mademoiselle Privé”. A nod to the words appearing on the door of Gabrielle Chanel’s atelier at the Rue Cambon in Paris, the show was intended to offer visitors a journey into the brand universe. Featuring Haute Couture pieces, re-editions of the “Bijoux de diamants” Haute Joaillerie collection created in 1932 and the CHANEL N°5 fragrance, Mademoiselle Privé also presented portraits of various fashion models, actresses and friends of CHANEL. Among them were Julianne Moore, Lily-Rose Depp, Geraldine Chaplin and Stella Tennant, all pictured wearing outfits designed by Karl Lagerfeld especially for this occasion. The exhibition also included the contemporary English-style gardens, arranged in the brand’s famous interlacing Cs shape. Divided into three parts, these gardens were a reference to Gabrielle Chanel’s star sign, to the love of her life and to her irrepressible desire for freedom.
