The new Mademoiselle Prive exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London celebrates the charismatic history of Chanel, from it’s couture beginnings with Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel to its present day powerhouse status under Karl Largerfeld.
Along with other ambassadors and friend’s of the brand, my brother and I were invited to attend the opening night soiree: first exploring the exhibition before heading to the upstairs bar for cocktails and performances by Vincent St James and Jamie Bochert.
Spanning three floors of the Saatchi Gallery, as well as the gardens outside, the exhibition presents a selection of Chanel’s haute couture pieces alongside a reissue of the brand’s high jewellery collection, “Bijoux de Diamants” – the only jewellery ever created by Coco Chanel in 1932. From the present day, there are a series of portraits, each photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, that include Julianne Moore, Vanessa Paradis, her daughter Lily Rose Depp and Cara Delevingne – all of whom attended the opening night!
Until next time!
