SINGAPORE - A FASHION SHOW
650 FEET ABOVE THE GROUND

On November 18th, Chanel showcased a special event in Singapore on the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands building.

The setting, featuring a 492 feet infinity swimming pool and surrounded by a panoramic view of the city's skyline, was the backdrop for the remake of the Cruise 2010/11 fashion show originally presented in Saint-Tropez last May.

At nightfall, the Sands Sky Park was transformed into a party venue for the guests.

The event was organized to celebrate the opening of the boutique at the ground floor of the building: a 648 m² fashion duplex designed by Peter Marino.

CHANEL RECREATES SAINT-TROPEZ
IN TOKYO

On November 17th, Chanel welcomed its guests at the Omotesando boutique, in the heart of Tokyo's trendiest shopping area, to celebrate the arrival of the latest Cruise 2010/11 collection.

For the occasion, the boutique was redecorated in the spirit of the show presented in Saint-Tropez last May.
The boutique and the terrace on the 4th floor of the building were tranformed into a Tropezian café as a party venue where the guests, including fashion celebrities, journalists and bloggers, enjoyed a live music performance, inspired by the playlist of the fashion show.

The installation will be on display for ten days.

CHANEL BY JEAN LEYMARIE
A COLLECTOR'S BOOK REVISITED

First published in 1987, this book was impossible to find in stores until now.
Only the most determined could still track down this collector.

It is once again available in French published by “Éditions de la Martinière” and in English by “Abrams” in the United States and “Thames & Hudson” in England.

In this book, art historian Jean Leymarie recounts the life of Coco Chanel and her work through the world of art. The text is accompanied by photos of Coco Chanel amidst the creations of Cocteau, Modigliani, Matisse, Renoir, Iribe, Doisneau, Marie Laurencin...
Toward the end of the 1910s, thanks to muse and benefactor Misia Sert, wife of painter José-Mari Sert, Gabrielle Chanel was introduced into the most avant-garde group of artists of the time. Jean Leymarie highlights the friendships that forged the life and style of Coco Chanel, from Picasso to Dali. "I always felt a solid sense of friendship toward Picasso. I believe that he felt the same way." (quote from Coco Chanel, p.70)
