Chanel Mobile Art Exhibit – Tickets Available Now!

A few months back we gave you a glimpse of the Chanel Mobile Art exhibit in Tokyo, Japan.  The next stop on the trip around the world is stateside in Central Park, New York City, from October 20 – November 9.  If you’re in NYC, or plan to be during that time, this exhibit should be at the top of your “to do” list.  The structure, designed by Zaha Hadid is a work of art in and of itself, and then there are the treasures inside – all inspired by the iconic Chanel quilted purse.  You can see some of the pictures of what to expect inside here.  Tickets are available now and advanced purchase is highly recommended.  You can purchase tickets here.

Largerfeld Confidential


Wasn’t there suppose to be a Anna Wintour documentary hitting cinemas to coincide with the release of Vogue’s infamous/over-sized September issue? Oh well, we’ll take Unkle Karl over any crazy fashion editrix anyday(although, I would like to know why she needs so many Hermes scarves).

Last Thursday night at a secret venue in Soho, a few members from the press were treated to the first glimpse of the Lagrfeld-Confidential docu-film. Directed by Rodolphe Marconi, it provides a glimpse in to the life of one of the most influential designers of the 21st century. Marconi was allowed into the life of Lagerfeld for two years and was given access to a number of important events. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the creative director of Chanel and many rumors circulating regarding his past(so scandalous). This film sheds light on many of these issues and reveals a very different side to Lagerfeld than the one portrayed in the press.

Laregerfeld-Confidential hits theaters October 26, but if you’re dying to see Karl’s bowl of silver rings you can get a sneak peak here.

Coco Mademoiselle Press Packet – Part Deux

Chanel invited a group of international bloggers to Paris for the launch of their latest scent project, Coco Mademoiselle. Jean Aw of NOTCOT, who kindly shared images of the gorgeous Coco Mademoiselle packaging with NOTCOT readers, has a couple of posts up sharing her Chanel experience.

In her Sealing Chanel post, Jean shares amazing behind the scenes images of how the Coco Mademoiselle bottles are sealed. I love that Chanel allowed photos of the very detailed process when most companies are very closelipped about such things.

Jean Aw quickly became one of my favorite people of the week with her Chanel Proportions post. This beyond-awesome lady cracked a Chanel myth that you’re going to have to read about, in her words, to understand. The designer in me GEEKED! Check it!
