Mademoiselle Privé: Inside the world of Gabrielle Chanel

(images via Vogue UK)

The Saatchi Gallery is currently showing Chanel's Mademoiselle Privé, an exhibition about the life and legacy of Gabrielle Coco Chanel. A journey through the origins of CHANEL's creations capturing the personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel (played by Geraldine Chaplin) and Karl Lagerfeld. The exhibition begins with a reconstruction of the mirrored staircase above Chanel’s salon which leads us to several rooms linked by white passageways edged by black trim at the floor and ceiling. An exhibition light on historical detail and big on brand experience, it takes up the entire three floors of the Saatchi gallery, beginning with a garden designed to represent key influences in Coco’s life.

The two last rooms of Mademoiselle Privé exhibition were the Haute Couture and Jewellery rooms, and naturally my favourite ones, were it's possible to appreciate some of the early designs produced by the house of Chanel. At the end of the exhibition the viewers are gifted with a lovely tote bag with a poster with the exhibition artwork on, it's also possible to participate in two different and free embroidery workshops that if you have the chance you shouldn't miss. 
You can visit Mademoiselle Privé at the Saatchi Gallery until 1st November
