Are you ready for this? Chanel’s artistic collaboration with the sensational American director Sofia Coppola just marked the beginning of the ‘Mademoiselle Privé’ exhibition in Tokyo. Paying homage to Gabrielle Chanel, Sofia has created a video collage featuring archival videos and images, advertising and film extracts, offering a contemporary vision of the French maison, from its haute couture collections and the N°5 perfume.
Guests and friends of Chanel, including Pharrell Williams, Yui Sakuma and Soo Joo Park, discovered Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment in an exclusive setting. Step inside for an exclusive tour of Mademoiselle Chanel’s apartment, which comprises four rooms in which she worked and received her friends, from the white sequence representing the mirrored staircase to the color gold and the fireplace in her apartment.
First started at Saatchi Gallery in London in 2015, the fifth instalment of the exhibition continues to celebrate the legacy of the French maison through the years. In her apartment decorated with lacquered Coromandel screens and surrounded by precious objects, Mademoiselle Chanel deployed the aesthetics of her imaginary world. And at the exhibition, you can experience them first-hand.
Chanel’s Mademoiselle Prive exhibition runs at the B&C Hall-Tennoz in Tokyo until 1 December.
