Sam Taylor-Johnson’s photographic exhibition of the private apartment of Mademoiselle Chanel, "Second Floor", will open at Saatchi Gallery in London on Friday September 12th 2014 until Saturday October 4th. The series of 45 photographs captures the private rooms of Mademoiselle Chanel at 31 rue Cambon in Paris.
"Shooting at Coco Chanel’s apartment was an unexpectedly absorbing experience," says Taylor-Johnson. "The essence of Chanel is firmly rooted there in all of her possessions and I truly believe that her spirit and soul still inhabit the second floor."
