The Mademoiselle Prive Exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, in London. Wow. The entire gallery was converted into a shrine to Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. It was visually breathtaking, interactive, informative, and completely mind blowing! From rooms dedicated to the making of Chanel No.5, to artwork painted by Karl himself, and of course a stunning collection of original Chanel Haute Couture pieces, it really was an inspirational feast. Photos do not give justice, but here are some faves.

With so much on offer within the walls of such a beautiful Gallery, it was hard to single out a favourite area or exhibit piece. However, as you moved from room to room, the hallways were probably my most favourite aspect... mimicking the famous black and white Chanel packaging, it was so simple in its execution, yet so effective in cementing "Mademoiselle Privé" as one of the greatest exhibitions I've had the honour of visiting. It was the attention to detail within these white walls - that truly mirrored the same attention to detail possessed by the great lady in which we were there to celebrate....
