Something exciting has been happening Downtown in Dubai! While I was back in Amsterdam celebrating us having a new King which I blogged about Dubai was having the best party for the opening of a Chanel exhibition. As I’m sure you have already read about this on other’s blogs this is just a little bit of an elbow in the side or a kick up the a*$& to say get yourselves down to the Mohammed Bin Rashid Blvd ASAP to catch the last view days of this exhibition.
Like many of you I am a die-hard fan of Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld’s work. The man is nothing but a genius and he is so clever to protect the style ethos of the house that Coco Chanel spent years cultivating. However, although Chanel designs can arguably be classics Karl Lagerfeld makes them so current. I believe one of the keys to his success is that he understands you need to stay present and at the same time look to the future as fashion is always 6 months ahead of us at least. With this in mind I think the Little Black Jacket exhibition was the epitome of classic Chanel Style but showing its adaptability to today’s global world. On planet earth today we live in such a connected world where celebrities every move is watched and the desire to be successful is on every continent. As you can imagine there was not much that could go wrong with Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens and styling by Carine Roitfeld. Every individual from SJP to Yoko One and the unknown Artist that was photographed for this exhibition was different and diverse and I think this was the statement of the photos; Any one can wear a Chanel Little Black Jacket and it will give you some kind of magical confidence.
The exhibition is on Downtown until 11th May ….. catch it while you can. See a sneak peak of the behind the scenes video
