EL ARTE TRANSPORTA EL TIEMPO, Y CON ÉL SUS HISTORIAS Y LEYENDAS, POR JEAN-LOUIS FROMENT

El tiempo Chanel no existiría sin el bullicio artístico parisino en el que vivió Gabrielle Chanel
Pintores, músicos, poetas, coreografos, fotógrafos y cineastas han compartido con ella el espíritu de sus creaciones.
Mademoiselle comprendió muy pronto la exigencia de los artistas, su tenacidad para dar forma a una idea y sobre todo, a desafiar al tiempo y hacer una obra de su diferencia.

En esta exposición, los cinco temas representados (El Origen, La Abstracción, Lo Invisible, la Libertad, Lo imaginario) abordan en profundidad la dimension histórica de los valores de CHANEL en consonancia con los valores fundamentales de la historia de su creadora.

Podemos ver como manuscritos, dibujos, fotografías, objetos preciosos, documentos únicos, creaciones de moda, perfumes y joyas revelant un paisaje único compuestode secretos, sentimientos e invenciones: un gabinete de curiosidades, donde el arte no puede aportar nada más allá de lo que se siente contemplando los objetos de la exposición.
De esta forma las obras se convierten en cómplices contemporáneas, sabias y sensibles, muchas veces inesperadas en la imaginación de las creaciones de Gabrielle Chanel
Desde un recorte cubista hasta la construcción de una prenda, desde una partitura musical hasta un perfume, desde un poema a una joya, todos estos elementos participan en una creación cultural histórica mundial.

Juntos elaboran una historia, transmiten mensajes, ponen en movimiento su punto de vista, intercambian sus lenguajes, aspiran a un sistema estético nuevo, fabrican nuevas libertades, captan, marcan, diseñan y proyectan el tiempo futuro en el que se miden y se convierten en signos irreversibles de una experiencia única e historicamente cultural que le faltaba al mundo.

"THE TALE OF A FAIRY" - ANNA MOUGLALIS
INTERVIEW BY JEFFERSON HACK

A bewitching short-film created and directed by Karl Lagerfeld for the 2011/12 Cruise Collection, The Tale of a Fairy stars friends of House including Chanel ambassadress Anna Mouglalis, Amanda Harlech, and models Kristen McMenamy and Freja Beha. “It is a movie about an ill-advised use of money which begins with violence and ends with feeling,” explains Karl Lagerfeld. Below, Anna Mouglalis takes us behind the scenes…

Describe your character?
Anna Mouglalis: A scorned woman, living in her own bubble, melancholic, bored to death by everything surrounding her.

She is touched by grace after an encounter with a fairy – how does the encounter change her?
Anna Mouglalis: The fairy is the grace, the beauty, the Other… She gives my character the desire to open her eyes again, to see the love. My character becomes a completely new person.

How did direction from Karl differ from your experiences with other directors?
Anna Mouglalis: Even though Karl had pictured the whole story in his head before being on set, we discovered it as we were filming, improvising with Karl. He was creating the dialogue in a very playful way as we were going along. Filming with a big team usually makes the work harder but Karl made it feel like there was only us on set.

LADY CURZON, VICE-QUEEN OF INDIA

Karl Lagerfeld names his latest collection Paris Bombay Métiers d'Art and speaks about 19th century India. "I like the idea of the Vice-King, that’s fun. That’s why I came out with Stella Tennant, because she looked very much like Lady Curzon, the famous Vice-Queen around 1900 who was a very beautiful woman. She is so English, but in the nice way, in the good image of England mixed with India."

Bombay, 1898. George Curzon, freshly appointed Viceroy of India, takes his place as the highest ranking official in British India. His wife, Mary Victoria Curzon, joins him as Vicereine. Her sophisticated beauty and style were to make a lasting impression that is still felt to this day.

Mary was an impassioned advocate of Indian culture and local fabrics. Her status gave her considerable influence in matters of style. She contributed to the design of a gold-embroidered gold-weave gown for Queen Alexandra of England, which was crafted in the same Chandni Chowk atelier in Delhi from which she supplied her own wardrobe.

This blend of English fashions and Indian inspiration was echoed in Mary’s lifestyle. She caused a sensation with the peacock dress she wore for King Edward VII’s coronation in 1903, a gold-stitched gown embroidered with the feathers of the famed Indian bird.

Lady Curzon fuelled the renown of Indian artisans by championing their skill and craftsmanship. She helped promote producers of fine fabrics by wearing Indian cloth in her own dress. She advised silk weavers and embroiderers, encouraging them to use motifs and weaves that reflected fashionable trends.
