Recently unveiled at Seoul’s Dongdaemun Design Plaza, is Culture Chanel The Sense of Places. Curated once again by Jean‑Louis Froment, who previously brought Culture Chanel to Moscow, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Tokyo, the exhibition is a retrospective of Mademoiselle Chanel’s life story. Periods of time crucial to the brand’s development are discovered throughout the exhibition, beginning with Gabrielle Chanel’s “Childhood Impressions,” exploring her days in the Aubazine orphanage until she opened her fashion house. More than 500 photographs, artworks, books, objects, manuscripts, and archives, alongside Chanel’s fashion, jewellery, and perfume creations are presented.

Slated to run through October 5th at the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza, the work of the architect Zaha Hadid, the coveted exhibition attracted model Soo Joo Park, Kiko Mizuhara and K-pop star G-dragon at the opening ceremony. –Maria Mao
