Chanel's new London exhibition

Chanel's new London exhibition

Chanel is planning an exhibition in London.

According to WWD, the French fashion house is taking its chic clothing to the Saatchi Gallery in the British capital.

Mademoiselle Privé will focus on haute couture and the reissued 1932 Bijoux de Diamants jewellery, which also hit the runway at Chanel's couture presentation earlier this month.

The exhibition will unfold over three floors and run from October 13 to November 1.

Karl Lagerfeld's couture catwalk was full of famous faces, with Kendall Jenner presenting a structured cream satin suit with a gauze trail that looked like a wedding veil.

The models walked around actresses at casino tables set up in the middle of the runway. Among them were Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore, with Karl explaining he liked the idea of beautiful people sitting dressed up and gambling.

"Fashion has to follow everything that's going on in the world and I liked the idea of the most iconic jacket of the 20th century redone in a technique that wasn't even possible to imagine that one day such thing could exist," he said of the show, which featured Chanel's infamous tweed jacket, to

"It's not tweed we buy, it's all embroidered and of course we use chiffon and satin, but most of them are embroidered... over a million pearls on the dress... the craftsmanship, the embroidery is different and you can make a more graphic effect. In a way, it's more a fantasy than ready-to-wear, but a fantasy related to reality."
