The history of Chanel will be put on dazzling display this autumn, at a new exhibition held at the Saatchi Gallery. The exhibition, installed over three floors of the gallery, will celebrate both the historical inspiration behind the designs of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and the innovative way that the brand has been developed under Karl Lagerfeld. In addition, it will showcase Chanel’s haute couture collection, exclusive pieces especially designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the exhibition along with the re-edition of the High Jewellery ‘Bijoux de Diamants’ collection created in 1932 and the iconic Chanel No.5 fragrance. The capital has often celebrated the late designer through exhibitions, and even musicals, charting her life at the helm of the illustrious fashion house. Lagerfeld is also no stranger to being the subject of a retrospective – Karl Lagerfeld: Modemethode is currently running at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn.
