CHANEL Exhibition In Tokyo

“Mademoiselle Privé”, these two words appear on the door that led into Mademoiselle Chanel’s Creation studio on the third floor at 31 rue Cambon in Paris. Today it is the title of an exhibition that invites us to open the door onto CHANEL’s creation offering an immersion into the three original creative worlds of the House, Haute Couture, CHANEL N°5 and CHANEL High Jewelry.

Passing through one chromatic ambiance to another, the exhibition brings together all the integral parts of CHANEL’s aesthetic vocabulary: white for the staircase, beige for the sofa, black for the dining room, red for the writing desk and gold for the fireplace.

Mademoiselle’s apartment is a place of inspiration into the creative worlds of CHANEL. Its atmosphere can be seen as an integral part of the House’s aesthetic vocabulary magnified by Karl Lagerfeld and Virginie Viard.

The exhibition opens its doors at the B&C Hall-Tennoz in Tokyo from October 19th to December 1st.

The Met’s “Camp: Notes On Fashion” Exhibit

Every year on the First Monday in May, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts the Costume Institute Gala to kick off the opening of its popular fashion exhibit at The Costume Institute. This years theme is “Camp: Notes on fashion” it is all about the art of being extra.

Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition will explore the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.
