The renowned Palais Galliera of Paris, France, has extended their retrospective into the life and work of one of the world’s most revolutionary designers Gabrielle Chanel.
An expansive, chronological view of her first pieces into what we recognize as the most emblematic looks of the House: N° 5, the famed 2.55 quilted classic bag, two-toned sling-back pumps, and of course, gorgeous amounts of tweed separates, designs that still carries true to this very day.
A culmination of efforts by Chanel, Miren Arzalluz, the Director of Palais Galliera, Olivier Saillard, and Véronique Belloir, we can experience the decades of Gabrielle’s life work, including the ups and downs that come with raising such a famed global fashion house.
The exhibition will continue through July this summer. Be sure to read the entire story and catch more of the hundreds of thousands of pieces that make up this spectacular exhibition in our upcoming July Issue.
