This autumn in London, Karl Lagerfeld and CHANEL will present an enchanting exhibition that will highlight haute couture, re-editions of the High Jewellery ‘Bijoux de Diamants’ collection created in 1932 and CHANEL No5. This stunning exhibition is to be installed across three floors of the gallery and free for all to see. CHANEL is one of the most beautiful, feminine and elegant designer houses in the industry and opening the doors for not the first time will reveal a dazzling experience and immersion into the minds and persona of Mademoiselle Prive, the origin of CHANEL’s creations.

Mademoiselle Chanel became one of the world’s most adored women, with a charistmatic, forward thinking and feminist driven personality. All these characteristics have contributed to the working creative mind of its creative director and designer Karl Lagerfeld.
