Mademoiselle Privé.. Merci Gabrielle !
Last Sunday, the curtain fell down on the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery – oh that Gallery ! Definitely my favourite gallery in London, it goes without mentioning also its infamous neighbour shop Paltridges where I am always sure to find my Italian Galletti, my biscuits for breakfast!)
As most of you already know, Mademoiselle Privé was the incredible journey through Coco’s universe highlighting the Haute Couture and the High Jewellery creations of Coco’s reviewed by the irreverant spirit of Karl Lagerfeld.
I couldn’t miss the exhibition so I went to the Duke of York Square, being a bit naïve actually because.. I didn’t expect the long queue that I found… obviously I am not the only one who is truly passionate about Chanel!
But I can promise that the long queue worthed every minute of it!
As soon as I entered the building, I was completely soaked into Coco’s world : the magical ambience of Rue Cambon, the mysterious Sensory Room…….
and then the GRANDEUR of the Bijoux de Diamants Room showing the Haute Jewellery collection created by Coco in 1932….simply spectacular in its craftmanship!
I personally adored the pieces showed at the Lemarié and Lesage workshops : the Feather and Flowers House and the Embrodery house belong both to the Chanel’s Métiers D’Arts.
When you have the chance to admire such a talented mind, you feel blessed to be – in some way – part of this fascinating world and it invites you to do your best each day !
MERCI GABRIELLE !
