Mobile art in new york

After Hong Kong and Tokyo, the futuristic pavilion built by Zaha Hadid for CHANEL will arrive in New York on October 20th.

This itinerant contemporary art exhibition will open its doors to the public in the heart of Central Park, on the Rumsey Playfield, just by 70th Street. Karl Lagerfeld did not choose this location randomly. Central Park is the only gigantic natural space, where one can take a walk and breathe in a city that is dedicated to the “culture of congestion”: condensed architecture, rationalization, repetition, systematism, verticality… The flawless and organic architecture of the Mobile Art pavilion will encounter the park’s natural design and contrast with the New York architecture that comes out through the foliage.

Coincidentally, the opening of Mobile Art in New York will take place at the same time as the park's 150th anniversary. The exhibition admission is free upon request via Internet. The New York edition of “CHANEL Mobile Art” magazine will be given to each visitor.

Organ pipes

For this season's haute couture collection, the designer conceived a central burst of tubes as tall as 105 feet under the majestic glass ceiling of the Grand Palais. "One day, he says, I was at a piano concert given by Helene Arnault and Brigitte Engerer... It all started then. It is the organ buffet at the Salle Gaveau that inspired me." For Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion show's set is extremely important; It is more than a simple illustration or prolongation of the collection's theme, it is a true architectural proposition. The power, the strength, and the originality of this effort add a whole new dimension to the show, as the architecture connects the fashion to the show's music.
