Musée Chanel?


Chanel set

As if Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t have enough to do—what with the umpteen collections per season he designs for Fendi, Chanel, and his eponymous range—he took it upon himself to create seventy-five giant Chanel-centric artworks for his Spring ’14 set (or, rather, he conceived or mocked-up the pieces, and had them supersized by a team of experts). The assortment of objets included everything from an abstract iteration of a Chanel jacket, to a canvas embellished with the house’s iconic double Cs in pearls, to a marble monument shaped like a bottle of Chanel No. 5. There was even a quilted 2.55 bag befitting Goliath. Was it fashion? Art? Both? Only one thing’s for sure: Last Spring’s Hula-Hoop purse would have looked right at home in Lagerfeld’s epically proportioned galerie.
