Mademoiselle Privé

IMG_1865When I arrived at Saatchi Gallery to see the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition (on view now until November 1) I was informed that the wait time was 45 minutes. I had this internal struggle. Should I really stand in line for 45 minutes to see this show? Was it worth my time? I decided to wait. Once I walked into the gallery I knew I had made the right decision. The exhibition was like nothing I had seen before. Encompassing all three floors of the gallery, the show explores the history of the celebrated designer Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel. Each room is designed according to an influential element in her life. One room is a garden, with crisscross bushes spread across the walls. Another room has large pots which randomly open so that you smell various fragrances which make up the famed Chanel No. 5. You can walk through hanging draperies allowing you to feel the different textures of Chanel’s products. For me the show opened a door to the life of Chanel and allowed me a glimpse of what was important to the quintessential modern designer. FullSizeRender
