Saatchi Gallery and Karl Lagerfield. Need I Say More?
Today we talk about Saatchi Gallery and Karl Lagerfeld. A perfect combination and the excuse to travel to London.
We have the perfect excuse for you to hit London city. Until November 1 The Saatchi Gallery offers you an opportunity to soak up fashion in a whole nother way. Call up your BFF and jet off to London for a little adventure. However, If you are in London, I have no idea what you are waiting for. “Mademoiselle Privé” captures the enigmatic personalities of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld through their iconic creations that have stolen our hearts through the years. Karl has captured Kristen Stewart, Lily-rose Depp, Vanessa Paradis, Keira Knightley, Stella Tennant and Julianne Moore though his lens for this special occasion.
Chanel reflects the perfect balance of feminine and masculine, classic and modern. No doubt Gabrielle Chanel was determined to make a break through in fashion. She made a voice for herself in a time of war and deprivation, where woman were undermined.
She left the breath taking dresses (breath taking as in: suck it all in and hold your breath so I can zip this baby up) and introduced us to trousers – which are, by the way, making a huge comeback in objection of the skinny jeans painted on to our body and with a slight “man repeller” feel. Chanel turned artifice into sober, elegant and practical wear that empower the working women.
Let your mind wander in the Saatchi Gallery and get inspired by all the creativity “Mademoiselle Privé” offers. You will be able to enjoy the re-editions of the High Jewellery «Bijoux de Diamants» collection created in 1932 and CHANEL N°5. All three floors of this gallery are submerged in audacity, freedom and innovation. From the history of Gabrielle Chanel’s inspirations to Karl Lagerfeld‘s inimitable take on CHANEL’s codes and symbols that represent the Haute Couture house. Tweed, pearls, black and white and a twist of rock and roll took aver the opening night on October the 13th.
