chanel does sin city.
I'm dying over the black and white. How amazing. I would have loved to see the recreation of Coco's apartment! Talk about history, beauty, and style in one place. Everyone looks perfect in their Chanel garb and perfectly painted pouts!
What an event it must have been!
"As for the actual installation, it was a tastefully over-the-top, 10-room tour through the classic house codes. One room was filled with Chanel Bearbrick dolls and matching wallpaper, another displayed fine jewelry among sculpted topiaries. There was a recreation of Coco’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon, and a digital room that decoded the making of the 2.55 handbag. It had quilted leather walls. But no room was as popular as the one filled with old-school carnival claw games, where mesmerized guests tried to grab little Chanel gift bags with a mechanical arm."
